This is a question Ignorance

I once was in a programming class where the task was "build a calculator". A student did one with buttons 1, 2, 3 all the way up to about 25 and then ran out of space on the screen. We've asked this before but liked it so much we're asking again: What's the best example of ignorance you've encountered?

Don't wanna click?
Your client has a budget of up to $100, in exchange for which:

"I need someone to program me a new OS (Operasting System) that looks different than Ms Windows XP etc. but has the same style. It does not need to run on a mac but all the other PCs. It's supposed to have a stylish look with clear edges etc. And ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE JUST A REDESIGNED WINDOWS as I'm going to sell that operating system later on.
These are some important points :

It should have ALL THE FEATURES that Windows Xp Professional has.
ALL the files that run on Windows XP ust also run on the BlueOrb OS.
It must have a very user-friendly interface (like MS WINDOWS XP)
When it gets Installed, the user needs to insert a serial number.
It must be quick and good looking."

I'd certainly
be looking for the higher range of payment for that.

$20 just doesn't really cut it. I'd hold out for at least $90 before I lifted a finger.

Holy fuck, that's so retarded I can't even tell if it's a scam or the guy is actually serious.

That said, $100 goes a lot further over there than it does in the west.

Nice :)
I'd code it for $100... Would need the money up front and would be essential that I work to my own timetable. I'd be ready to make a start on the project in about 95 years time.
