So you're saying a celery is good?


Yes, infact i recommend you eat celery as part of your 5 a day.

Celery

Also its not as bad as when my mate shot his with a Air gun! The monitor didn't crack there just was a large area of dead pixels in the center of the screen about two inches across!

Want a sound?
Take some flat pieces of ice from a refridgeator and throw them from the 2nd floor or above to the ground. It sounds like breaking glasses :)

I did that in a Staircase from a 10th floor, even louder. :D

OK guys, Im going to come clean. I never actually smashed the monitor. It was a faked image of a cracked screen which I full screened to the monitor.

Image

The moral of the story? Don't beleive every bit of bullshit you're told as its probably not true. You could probably have told it wasn't cracked by impact damage if you looked at it hard enough, this image looks like its been caused by being dropped. You would also be able to tell the resolution is far less than that of the screen, at least half.

Here is the image for those who want a look.

Image

So am I a b*****d for doing this? Probably, but I had you lot going and not one person suspected it. ;)


On a brighter note however, I broke my pc last night but managed to fix it. It turned out to be the CD drive. Weird I know. It stopped it from getting to the desktop. As soon as I removed it, it was fine.

I'm sure he was really really really offended by my comment, since it was so much worse than the ones everyone else left.

that's the only time i fear, when microsoft is here
from past experience, I'd rather have a virus on my computer then have MS Tech try to remove it... bad example actually as I could remove it myself... but you get the idea
