Super serious problem with the instructions given for installing on Mac. Too many decisions given, what do?

I'm installing Ruby on Rails, and Jason told me to get a beverage of my choice while it installs. In my fridge, there's:


Almond Milk


Orange Juice

Protein powder (Casein AND Whey...)

I have not chuckled this hard in a long time thank you. By the way the correct solution is Almond Milk and Protein Powder.

Goodluck! --Ricky

The correct answer is always beer.

See Why Programmers Love Beer? for one possible explanation of this phenomenon.

Well put!

However, I have exceeded the Ballmer Peak and all my rspec tests are returning pictures of cats. I'll get on this once I sober up.

Thanks for the tip!
