On every fiftieth boot, the computer displays text written by Skrenta:

I'm 96 and I remember busting a nut over Betty 80 years ago. I remember seeing her in magazines and I'd sneakily j#rk my little pee pee off and c*m on her ankles. Mum caught me once and made me eat a bar of soap as punishment. When I first saw her on TV I nearly blew my load there and then. I think I tried to stick it in the electrical socket.
