At least i accept it...
I've got a good story from my tech class. One time we were trying to get so we could see what was going on on the screen of a PowerBook G3(it was screwed up due to mirroring, and we couldn't change it). Anyway, the other dude decides, "hey, I'm going to plug in an adapter with twice the voltage that the converter box takes." I sit there, thinking "what the hell", but I don't say anything
Meanwhile, he plugs in the cable from the back of the video out port into the converter, plugs the adapter into the wall, and whoosh, bam whack. I smell smoke, all the lights shut off, and the TV goes screwy. It all comes back on, and all i could say at the point was "you idiot."
Thats my story for the day.
