Three Commas Club

Three commas to imply a billion dollars as $1,000,000,000 has 3 commas. To be in the three commas club is to be a billionaire.

Richard’s literalness remains the one thing to rattle Russ. “You know what has three commas in it, Richard?” “A sentence with two appositive phrases in it?”

    Quora

    Quora is a overhyped startup unicorn that is jealous of Reddit's +500 million monthly visitors and was founded by a former Facebook employee. On Quora where you can ask questions about how to get rich, how to pitch investors and gossip about famous companies like Google, Apple and Facebook. Oh, and also stalk Jimmy Wales and Adrian Lamo.

    Now seriously: A Q&A website where you can ask questions about anything and have article-length answers written by Top Writers or Ph.D.s who spend nearly 2 hours writing superb answers full of images, graphics and details that are above your comprehension and that later will probably be posted to Gizmodo, TechCrunch, Forbes, BBC, The New York Times, Slate, Buzzfeed, Huffington and Washington Post or any other popular news-media website.

    Now seriously, seriously: A Question and Answer website where you can ask and answer questions about any topic and interact with highly intelligent people from all over the world and get happy when your content is sent on their daily email called "Quora Digest" to over a million people.

    Tired of that shit, now for real: Quora is the best place on the internet to find the best answer for your questions. (It'd certainly be if it had more users).

    Lisa: Hey, Jon, today I got over 200,000 views on my answers on Quora!
    Jon: Quora? What's Quora?
    Lisa: Quora is a website similar to Yahoo Answers where you can ask and answer a lot of interesting stuff!
    Jon: Oh, cool.
    Jon: Well, being relevant to that number of people on Twitter or Facebook is a different story, isn't it?

      Quora is an excuse for bloggers who don't want to admit they blog.

          This Guy Fucks

          Made popular by Russ Hanneman on the Silicon Valley show. It is just something to say when you want to mess with somebody. Meaningless. Could also mean this guy has a lot of sex but its impossible to tell.

              @memobug true. For some definitions using the actual word made the example flow a little worse so I leave it out if it's obvious. What do you think?

            Beast Mode

            Partially derived from the sports world (Marshawn Lynch going beast mode in the NFL). It is when you are super busy and have deadlines. You put on earplugs/headphones and drink caffeine in an attempt to knock out work/coding.

            Did you see Rohan? He went beast mode on that compiler program today and finished it on time.
            Man! Andrew went beastmode on my escalated technical cases today. Awesome!

                What an investment banker experiences after moving to Silicon Valley because he is no longer at the top of the totem pole.

                Lloyd: The other day I was talking to this girl when suddenly this nerdy Facebook employee starts talking to her, not even Mark, just a regular employee... and then she completely ignores me. I work in finance. I repeat, I work in finance. I miss New York.

                  Code Couple

                  Programming partners (in work or school) that are also involved with one another romantically.

                  Jeremy and Liz are the hottest code couple at Stanford. I hear after finishing their compilers projects they hold hands and read quantum computing books until both their bodies are exhausted.

                    Julian: Hell no. Why would I know how to do something like that.

                    Marco: Because computerz are basically more advance toasterz.

                            The Rift

                            A title given to denote virtual reality. Popularized by people who have spent immense amounts of time in an Oculus Rift headset and were unable to fully communicate the things they had seen and experienced while present in what they consider a different realm.

                            Recruiter: Why should we hire you for our VR division?

                            Jack: Aye. In my time I have seen many things in the Rift. Things the likes of you, could never imagine...

                            Recruiter: Why are you crying?

                            Jack: I held my virtual daughter in my arms as the light vanished from her eyes. I fought dragons in Russia trying to protect the refugees of a city that's now burnt to the ground. I spent almost two years in isolation in the Rift reading about the ancient tombs of Java Script and Lisp. I'm hoping that this position will help me forget about my past. My time in the Rift.

                            Recruiter: Why am I crying...

                                A code probably once served a purpose, but doesn't anymore. You're afraid of removing it because after years it just looks right the way it is.

                                In evolutionary biology vestigial organs are the ones an organism probably once used but no longer serve a purpose today.

                                James: It's vestigial code that makes gives me confidence when making something new. I've just built everything on top of my dayspan code from freshman year until now. I commented it out, don't worry.
