Ok I've completed the assignment (it's kinda bare-minimum, and i'm unsatisfied) and I still have all weekend!! so I'm gonna post this one here and try to work on something more complex, but if i cant figure it out by monday then use this!!!! ;-)
dim as string fortune(20) dim as integer x fortune(1) = "He who stands on toilet, is high on pot!" fortune(2) = " He who throws dirt is losing ground." fortune(3) = " The greatest danger could be your stupidity." fortune(4) = "A closed mouth gathers no feet." fortune(5) = "A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking." fortune(6) = "A friend asks only for your time, not your money." fortune(7) = "A hangover is the wrath of grapes." fortune(8) = "Man who sent out to doghouse, may often be found at cathouse" fortune(9) = "A truly wise man never plays leapfrog with a unicorn." fortune(10) = "After all is said and done, usually more is said than done" fortune(11) = "Always keep a record of data -- it indicates you've been working." fortune(12) = "An atheist is a man with no invisible means of support." fortune(13) = "An idea is not responsible for the people who believe in it." fortune(14) = "Arithmetic is being able to count up to 20 without taking off your shoes." fortune(15) = "As far as we know, our computer has never had an undetected error." fortune(16) = "Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clear to the bone." fortune(17) = "Behind every argument is someone's ignorance." fortune(18) = "Arguing on line is like the special olymipics, even if you win you are still retarded" fortune(19) = "Broadmindedness is highmindedness flattened out by experience" fortune(20) = "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." randomize timer x = int(rnd(1)*20)+1 screen 8 print print print print "Thought for the day:" print print print print print fortune(x) sleep
