The RockBear FAQ v1.2.0

This FAQ originally was created for the newsgroup alt.fan.rockbear, which was completely and utterly annihilated by the System Administration at DIKU. (RIP) (Means RockBear Is Phenomenal.)

Version History.

o v1.0.0: Created 30-Nov-1994 by the RockBear himself for the now very very dead Newsgroup alt.fan.rockbear
o v1.0.1: Mainly the same FAQ as v1.0.0 but turned into a HTML-document by disciple Moensted, to whom The Bear is extremely grateful.
o v1.1.0: A run-down by the RockBear himself of the Moensted HTML-isation of the FAQ. I added a few items, and corrected a few errors, too.
o v1.2.0: Oh well, we all make mistakes, don't we? The Bear forgot to edit point 2, and some other stuff were fixed, too.

So let's get started:

1. Why rockbear?

Because he is the peak of creation. The one true master to ask in not too spiritual matters, and the one to avoid if you wish to borrow money.

2. What is this group about?

What group? There is no group! But if you have nothing else to do, say something nice about RockBear.

3. Yeah, but why ROCKBEAR?

Because he is the peak of creation. The one true master to ask in not too spiritual matters, and the one to avoid if you wish to borrow money.

4. What is forbidden to do?

This point has been destroyed by the Mighty RockBear for being a very obnoxious and unfair point, and referring to a newsgroup that no longer exists. Do not EVER mention point number 4, that is the one true sacrilege, indeedio.

5. Says who?

says the RockBear.

6. WHY ROCKBEAR????

Because he is .. etc. etc..

7. Why that name? Is he a pooftah?

He is not, although he once entered #bearcave on IRC, and didn't leave until an hour later.... He honestly says, that he did not know it was the IRC gaybar. He just liked the name.

The true reason is, that his not-so-secret identity is Peter Bjarke Juul of Department of Computer science at the Univerversity of Copenhagen (rockbear@diku.dk), and "Peter" is greek for "Rock", and Bjarke is norse for "Bear", and thus The Mighty RockBear was created.

8. Why are you freaking so much about that?

See 1, 3 and 6.

9. Could you lend me a pill?

No.

10. How do I become a disciple of The RockBear?

Oh, it's very hard indeed. you'll have to fill out the Disciple Application Form, and then wait for the RockBears judgement.

11. What's in it for me?"

You may get your name on the RockBear WebSkater.

12. Why should I bother about THAT?

Because... oh, shut up and see 1, 3, 6 and 8
