String is the Devil

Postby acsguitar » Tue Sep 26, 2006 4:24 pm

I hate string, cable, cord, wire, fishing line, and every other manifistation of evil twisty devil string.

It gets tangled on everything. If you have ever been fishing then you know what I'm talking about. You can just touch your fishing line and it gets tied into 100 tight unloosenable evil knots.

I have no idea how this happens. I just spent 30 minutes untangling my phone cord from my headphone cord.

It was awful especially since the phone cord is the curly cue type that is ripe with evilness and kicks physics theories right in the face.

I hate it!!

How does it do it. If only we could unlock the secret evil power of string then we probably would all leave in peace and harmony.


EVIL!!

I generally only have to deal with electronic cords, but I know that I hate them more then anything.

Let's just say I try to avoid messing with the back of my computer area as much as possible. All the cords just piss me off and ruin everything. :-°

I thought for a while here that this was a rant against the usage of strings in computer programs. :-?
