Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  fool n. As used by hackers, specifically describes a person who
     habitually reasons from obviously or demonstrably incorrect premises and
     cannot be persuaded by evidence to do otherwise; it is not generally
     used in its other senses, i.e., to describe a person with a native
     incapacity to reason correctly, or a clown. Indeed, in hackish
     experience many fools are capable of reasoning all too effectively in
     executing their errors. See also cretin, loser, fool file.
  
     The Algol 68-R compiler used to initialize its storage to the
     character string "F00LF00LF00LF00L..." because as a pointer or as a
     floating point number it caused a crash, and as an integer or a
     character string it was very recognizable in a dump. Sadly, one day a
     very senior professor at Nottingham University wrote a program that
     called him a fool. He proceeded to demonstrate the correctness of this
     assertion by lobbying the university (not quite successfully) to forbid
     the use of Algol on its computers. See also DEADBEEF.

Din dicționarul THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) :

  FOOL, n.  A person who pervades the domain of intellectual speculation
  and diffuses himself through the channels of moral activity.  He is
  omnific, omniform, omnipercipient, omniscience, omnipotent.  He it was
  who invented letters, printing, the railroad, the steamboat, the
  telegraph, the platitude and the circle of the sciences.  He created
  patriotism and taught the nations war -- founded theology, philosophy,
  law, medicine and Chicago.  He established monarchical and republican
  government.  He is from everlasting to everlasting -- such as
  creation's dawn beheld he fooleth now.  In the morning of time he sang
  upon primitive hills, and in the noonday of existence headed the
  procession of being.  His grandmotherly hand was warmly tucked-in the
  set sun of civilization, and in the twilight he prepares Man's evening
  meal of milk-and-morality and turns down the covers of the universal
  grave.  And after the rest of us shall have retired for the night of
  eternal oblivion he will sit up to write a history of human
  civilization.
