Hack­ing hearts

The World of Chinese - - MISHMASH -

In a bizarre at­tempt to win over a girl’s heart, an en­ter­pris­ing stu­dent in Chongqing hacked into his school’s com­puter net­work in Oc­to­ber to take over a Pow­erpoint pre­sen­ta­tion dur­ing class. “My lady likes ex­cite­ment,” the mes­sage read. “She hopes I can show my love like this.” The anony­mous love-struck teen spent the rest of the mes­sage apol­o­giz­ing for tak­ing up class time. Then the whole or­deal fin­ished with, “Sorry about that, just restart the com­puter to fix the prob­lem,” and signed off, earn­ing him the ti­tle “world’s most apolo­getic hacker”. Ap­par­ently, the stunt hap­pened just af­ter teacher eval­u­a­tions, the Global Times re­ported. - DAVID DAW­SON
