Things that make me go huh?

Why do people ask if they may ask a question, when in fact it's too late, they just did?
Why do people ask if you can help them without stating their problem, they only ask can you help me?
Why is it always the people that say "trust me I'm a person of my word" the ones that always lie?
lsof - list open files
lsof is a Unix-specific diagnostic tool. Its name stands for LiSt Open Files, and it does just that. It lists information about any files that are open by processes currently running on the system. It can also list communications open by each process.

Very old remote quote.

I forever speak of history, as once it's said, it is such.
