Humor

Post by zoey » Fri Jul 11, 2008 1:28 am

My brother emailed me this link, which is either really funny or I'm dead-dog tired from studying too much.

Click the link and put a coin in the coffee machine by using your mouse:

Impossible! There's no way that your machine could have opened as easily as that! :lol:

:lol: Funny, good humour even if you are staying up too late and drinking too much espresso!

And I thought I saw the loose nut that Niko dropped inside the machine when it opened up.

:lol: :lol: Ahhhh...the dreaded "Where the heck did that nut go? I heard it fall somewhere".

Then, after you finally see it by using a flashlight and contorting yourself like you have been working for Cirque du Soleil since you were 12 years old, you mutter to yourself: "How the h*ll am I going to get to that?" :roll:

The last time I dropped a teeny-tiny little nut into the machine I ended up shaking the thing like it was a vending machine that had my Nut Goody Bar hung up on one of the coils. :lol:

...yeah, the Vivaldi never felt lighter!
I shook that thing as if it weighed only a couple of pounds, all the anger built up and the strength and brutality took over.
I boycotted the S1 for any repairs, next time the covers need to come off I'm selling the machine :lol:
I think there's a gremlin (not a monkey) in my old S1 :wink:



Speaking about humor....
while I was in that rage last night reinstalling a side panel, I actually got squirted with water from the incoming water on the S1!
I had turned the water on right before reassembling the machine to make sure it worked with no leaks. I got nailed in the face 3-stooges style while I was shaking the machine to get a felled nut, I kept shaking and as I leaned down to look under the machine - the braided hose got twisted in an odd way and loosened up to shoot some water in my face :lol:

If you attached a shoulder harness to the machine you could use it as a Super Soaker. :lol: After you hosed someone down, you could offer them a lovely Sumatra. :lol:
