    The one with the cd being placed in between the players was the best! And the visa cards!

    Some of those aren’t bad... I should have taken a picture of my sushi pc...

    I sold a pc then it came back next day with customer telling me that it doesn’t work... I asked if he ever opened the case, he said "no". I opened it to see what was wrong and found sushi on (and all over) the motherboard. After I asked if the sushi was any good he admitted that he took the PC apart and put it back together.

    I actually fixed the PC for him for free thinking hey, I treat him good he will recommend people to me. After it was fixed (with in 2 hours, he fried the motherboard by putting it directly on the case) he told me that he wants money back because he rather go with gateway. I just laughed in his face and told him that warranty was voided...

    People like that was the reason why I shutdown my business, they took so much of my time and brain-cells it was not worth it...

    I miss the money, but missing the stupid stuff is worth it. One customer asked me how to click his mouse slower. I reduced the sensitivity setting, but he want me teach him to click slower. So, I got paid for letting him watch me click a mouse.

    Wow, that case mod is remarkably... :eyebrow:

    ...uh... :eek:

    ...yeah. :rollno:

  7. I don't know anything about computers... But I know those pictures are funny as all hell!!! (The credit cards were my favorite!)

  8. Well, a couple of those I don't understand because my tech knowledge isn't that great, but it seems to me that there are certain people in this world who should never be allowed to use a comptuer, without correct supervision.

    Rock on

    Classics! That's cool that someone took the time to get photos of some of that stuff. A couple of those are "NO WAY!!" type of stories.

    Also very cool of the dude to put little captions so the technically challenged can laugh too. :D

  10. Yes, thank God he did, or else I would have never gotten most of it.. lol.

    Im sure people like me are ridiculed on sewing sites (are there sewing forums?) when people take pictures of the ways we try and fix our pants : ) All I get from some of my female/sewing friends is "Oh, Sam....." (my name is Sam).

  14. I have to believe that most of the strange insertions can be blamed on kids. Ever seen what they can jam into a vcr?

    Well, they don't laugh at me, cause I know when I'm out of my league and how to hire a professional (or just buy a new pair of pants...)

    Of course, as the photos there prove, you really CAN fix ANYTHING with Duct Tape!!!
  16. Duct tape? Maybe I should not mention the duct-tape holding my video card in place?

    ...It's worked so far...

    Well... sort of. It more astoundingly proves that some people don't even know how to use duct tape (let alone computers). :rolleyes:

  18. the best one by far was the cut case, and the credit card one....

    "honey, have you seen the new visa cards?"
    "no sweety, but joey said he was going to buy something online, dont worry though, the computer is off"

    and the the one with the casino token, whole new meaning to the term on line gambling
