The Newbies of today are the Pros of tomorrow.


Award or a sex toy?
Newb Religion.
Inquisitive Newb.
The typical n00b has this installed, because they fail at other *nixes.
Installing OS X on a PC - only something a stupid n00b would do.
Fun fact: the blood of n00bs can be used as a powerful degreaser for internet tubes.

Newbies (newbs, n3wb5, noobz, n00bs, n00bzors, newfags) are those, whose lack of capacity for conversation, wit and appropriate behavior in a group setting IRL is amplified when OL, a setting where they feel liberated and therefore have no sense of liability. They create frustrating situations for those they come in contact with. Contrary to the moniker a person can be OL for many, many years and remain quite n00bish.


Newbies are epitomized by their lack of knowledge, seemingly unfathomable stupidity and ignorance towards the rules and standards of etiquette. They are also known for their excessive use of 1337 because it's likely that the internet is the first time in their lives they've been required to use significant reading skills.

Newbies are susceptible to malware, viruses/trojans and internet scams, because they are not only naive but also have personality faults. Lazy, lascivious, lecherous, greedy, unwilling to read anything or research their new playground, they click eagerly on anything that excites their Id. After a few thousand pop-ups and experiencing rapid deterioration of computer performance, they belatedly become afraid that their PC is filled with some pretty nasty shit. If they see a warning in front of them that says their computer is infected, they erroneously click the shit out of it, hoping for even a meager chance of wiping the slate clean. The newb will then have to explain to his father or boss why Busty XXX Whores want to perform for him. Lulz.

Early Newbs

The first newb was a member of the British Parliament who asked Charles Babbage, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" To which Mr. Babbage replied; "I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question." Which is ancient British for "Facepalm". Newbs therefore inspired the first computer acronym, GIGO.

Difference between Noob and Newb

There is no difference, anyone who says otherwise is spreading cancer
