General Unix

In what's never going to be a regular occurance, I'm linking to a Twitter thread. Chris Espinosa tweets:

Just as I was wrapping up an email and getting ready to leave work, a co-worker rolled his chair over to show me an "interesting" thing.

Go ahead, read it.

UNIX, man. Not even once.

As other have said, the terminal being used isn't handling the overstrikes. With that said, in their raw form, the roff man pages can be formatted for output proper to your end device. Shoot, you can even have it output HTML (with a few hiccups... depending on what your man supports).

Dare I even say, man col (if this an old Unix host especially)
