That must be a virus or something. Encoding issues normally provide garbled 
strings, but not the word "fucked". Somebody is playing jokes with you.

setdefaultencoding gets removed from sys after execution of site.py / 
sitecustomize.py.

My solution is to grab site.py, dig up "default encoding" and change from 
imperalistic ASCII to LATIN-1. 

Some told me that avangarde persons also take UTF8.
