An obesrvation of life on the forums

It's gotten past the point where I have to be careful not to be drinking any form of liquid while at work and viewing the OTF.

I counted 3 times today that I started laughing and almost spit on my keyboard or screen while reading people's posts.

I was hoping you had written a research paper on this place. Now that would be good reading!

Only 3 times? I get that with nearly every post I read :wink3:

A few are so stupid I could almost cry, and some are so witty/funny I'd crap my pants if I'd wear any :grin:

The only thing that bothers me is the language some people use (both offensive and the crappy English) English is by far not a language I should be able to speak, yet I find it one of the easiest and most convenient ones.

Well if I did not contain myself earlier ...my morning mug of coffee would have ended up all over my screen.

Eh ...Some of Freet's posts do have that effect.

*looks over at Freet*

You could join my class action lawsuit against the OTF for irreparable damage done to my electronics due to hilarity induced coffee spitting.

Rumor has it that the damage to your electronics was cause by some kind of overclocking.

I don't see how the suit can stand based on that fact.

Dismissed.

If you are at work you can just swap out your keyboard with a co-workers after he has left for the day.

Dave strikes again!

Somthing like this actually has happened here, a co worker of mine spilled a mug of coffee onto his keyboard, the stuff was pouring out as we held the kb over a garbage can.

So he waited till it was almost time to leave and switched it with one of the rooms down the hall.

We spilled a capuccino all over one of the phones at the radio station I used to work at. It happened to be the bosses phone of all things. . . it still worked too, but we were caught a couple days later when he asked us why his receiver smelled like Irish Cream. Then the phone stopped working.

I spilled tea on my colleague, on my first day of work. :embarassed: I didn't want to, it was very embarrassing, she had to phone her hb to bring her dry clothes.:embarassed:

Dang guys, I usually drink my coffee (I actually feel like a weirdo just for saying that, seeing how all you manage to do is spill it)

Having said that, I did however (not my fault) spilled my coffee once, when the little guy from my sister kicked it out of my hands (don't ask)

That's another thing. I think that this "effect" happens to a lot of us. We need research on it.
