It's stories like Do not run this script, ever! from Daily WTF that makes me think that we as sysadmins, will never, ever win. Also that the stupid people in the world are getting smarter, without actually getting.... smarter.
I asked what he thought when the script printed "DO NOT EVER RUN THIS SCRIPT" and exited without doing anything. The newbie said he saw that, but really wanted to see what it did, so he commented out the "exit 1" and ran it again.
