What does qwerty mean to you?
« on: 04 Aug 2008, 07:23 »

Since the robots just gawked at Hanners instead of answering her question, I'm going to look for answers here.

What do YOU think "qwerty" means?

A concept without organic parallel. Only a robot can truly understand what it means and why it's so revolting.

Either that, or it means the same thing as "Belgium".

That would mean I'm from qwerty, and that my parents still live in qwerty.  Doesn't work.

qwerty to me isn't a cuss word, it means too querky for the word querky.

I can't answer that question because I do not let myself have thoughts like those that would be required to ponder the meaning of "qwerty".

Qwerty probably means something really bad to the robots, like "baby rape".

It's probably the geekiest, most outdated term ever used by robots... I bet it's looked on as slang that only 286ers would deign to use.  It's probably older than 'groovy'.  The first anthro-pc was probably deactivated by going around saying "qwerty, baby" in a deep, gravely voice :mrgreen:

I'm pleased to have found a spot on the internet that isn't (yet) inhabited by polluted minds and sexual deviants.
I have been following the comic for a few years now, but this is my first forum post.

Sorry to break it to you, sweet people of the clean internet zone, but qwerty means the same as r@ygold: it's a search term for kiddy porn.
(You know it had to be something like that if even Pintsize looks shocked)

Why would robotkind choose 'qwerty' as an extremely offensive word? It's on the overwhelming majority of keyboards made in the last 100+ years!

Maybe it means "I'm hooking you up to a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. No more freedom for you!".

Perhaps it is an acronym.

Quails Want Equal Response Treatment
Quartered Wedged Etheral Retro Trains

And so on.

Robots can be programmed to look shocked at anything. Perhaps Pinsize is programmed to look shocked at the usage of the colours yellow and light blue together.

Maybe it's not something offensive, but only shocking. Maybe it's the robot equivilant of some one saying "I want to have hot, steamy, kinky sex with you all night long". I think Hanners saying that would be enough to shock Pintsize.

I repeat, it's not just a robot thing, 'qwerty' is a cover-up search term for child pornography. So that's why it's shocking.

Obviously because it's not a joke. I already told people here what it meant but there's still speculation. I would tell you to google it, but perhaps that's not such a good idea in this case.  :police:

According to urbandictionary.com:

"Qwerty    
   
1) First 6 lettters on a keyboard/typewriter

2) A word simular[sic] to "r@ygold" which is used on P2P networks, it is unlike r@ygold ,which is the code for child porn, qwerty means incest or simular[sic]"

but then again, urban dictionary can also be full of crap.

Use it in Limewire and you will find out. Or don't.

I mean, 42.

In the books, the "Belgium" reference is only in the American printings - the UK text has "Fuck" at that point.  Actually, "Belgium" is better!

Belgium has that signature style of jokes in the books. Much like 42.

However, in the Original Version (the Radio Series) Belgium is Used, by Zaphod Beeblebrox as he is hanging out of a giant icy cave 10 miles above ground level.

The Radio Series is much better. Much Much Better, and Douglas Adams was much Happier as a Radio Writer than as a Novellist.



Qwerty to me just brings to mind a dilbert cartoon, where wally has been sleeping on his keyboard, and explains away the marks to the PHB with 'Qwertyitus'

You're all wrong. Qwerty is a robot adjective that describes a person who's willing to take an electro-static discharge device, such as a stungun, to a machine's power intake port, thus blowing out its power supply and rendering it incapable of recharging its batteries if it has a battery pack, or quite firmly dead if it doesn't, and its power supply is not redundant.

Essentially, Hanners just informed the digital duo that she's entirely willing to murder them in their sleep cycle and she doesn't even know it.

Common usage is as in, "Guard your power port around Hanners. She's one qwerty chick."
