manly is a compliment to man pages.
It's a lot like explainshell (don't worry, that is explain-shell, not explains-hell).
Your good friend has a funky alias in his dotfiles:
alias alert="notify-send -i terminal -t 5 'Alert from Terminal!'":
$ manly notify-send -it notify-send - a program to send desktop notifications ===================================================== -t, --expire-time=TIME The duration, in milliseconds, for the notification to appear on screen. (Ubuntu's Notify OSD and GNOME Shell both ignore this parameter.) -i, --icon=ICON[,ICON...] Specifies an icon filename or stock icon to display.
Short and sweet!
