#1168: tar


[A woman and a man wearing a white hat stand next to a nuclear bomb. The bomb has a hatch open on top, and a small blinking screen. The two people are shouting off-screen.]]

Woman: Rob! You use Unix!

Man: Come quick!

[[The woman, man, and Rob look at the screen. Rob peers closely. The screen reads:

To disarm the bomb, simply enter a valid tar command on your first try. No Googling. You have TEN seconds.

~# _ ]]

[[They continue to peer.]]

Man: … Rob?

Rob: I’m so sorry.
