You definately have that right. His question this morning prompted me to come up with this:

Cost of 5 beer rounds, because I sux'd at darts.........$25
Last minute tickets to Father's Day Drag Races ........$300
My answer to his relief when discovering that today is Friday and tomorrow he doesn't have to work.........Priceless!

I'm going to try the dishwasher idea on my keyboard at home. Between my 5 & 8 year old kids, it's pretty much trashed. I was planning on buying a new one, so if it doesn't work, oh well.




Put the whole computer in there along with an antibiotic and you can get rid of viruses too.

Did you select Dr Pepper because it is more corrosive than Pepsi?




If you put a baby tooth in a can of Pepsi it will dissolve. You can't really get more corrosive than that.

Actually, I tell him that it's like playing Jeopardy when we have a conversation. He is just so way out there in Geekworld... Now he actually hums the tune when he can't remember what he wanted to tell me!
"oh, did I tell you about whathisname, and he went Iforgetwhere..." "Oh, I told, Mike, I mean Joe, no wait, Harry..." dun-na-na-na-na-nanah...dun-na-na-na-nah-nananananaa-na-na-na-a-na...
It's hysterical. LOL

Next time push the drive button on the front of your PC and the built in cup holder will slide out.




I hate to admit that when I tried the e-mail attachment that told me I was receiving a free gift from Coca-Cola it took a few tries before I realized that my CD-Rom wasn't really malfunctioning! I shouldn't even admit that but then again I'm mechanically challenged.

I know you won't believe me, but....... run it through the dishwasher. Just allow about 2 days for drying.



Just make sure it's unplugged from the hard drive. Duh.

Also in the "Duh" category -- when you place it in the dishwasher, be sure it's upside down so all that crud flushes out. And turn the heating element off or you could be worse off than when you started.

Work - request a new keyboard
Home - tell your spouse you needed a new PC anyway

Where the heart is
Man - I can't wait for the day when we'll have virtual keyboards.

BTW - a couple of years ago, I remember seeing a news story about a cardboard computer. This company had invented a disposable computer made of cardboard. The keyboard was a basic membrane over the input device, and the screen was a thin layer of a some sort of liquid crystal display. The whole thing was battery powered and meant to be thrown away when the battery died. The computer utilized a wireless connection to the Internet.

The company also had disposable cell phone also made of cardboard and available for sale with a pre-paid amount of minutes.

But since then I've never heard anything else about it. I don't think the date I saw the program was 4/1, but perhaps it was a re-run.

Does anyone else remember seeing anything like that?


(Dammit - I want a cardboard computer!!!!)
