It's not the fact these speaker cables cost $14,000 that's hilarious (although it's ridiculous!), it's the reviews. Before I read them, I actually thought 233 bought these things! LOL! Here is one of the customer images. grin


Here's one of the reviews:

"With the help of this cable, I can now experience music the way it's meant to be heard. I find that plugging this directly into my ears helps transmit the cleanest, most pure sound. Make sure you clean your ears out though (with liquefied dark matter, of course), because quality will suffer if your ear-holes aren't sparkly clean.

Also, I can fly now because of this cable."

One of the comments to the review:

"Humph! Amateur. Anyone still inserting things in their ears is a total noob. The only way to get the purest sound is to plug the AudioQuest K2s directly into the temporal lobes via solid gold binding posts drilled through the skull."

That is pretty awesome. I'd donate hundreds to set that up for a few of my friends here.

Kids joke:

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As
she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his
stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.

After a moment or two, the vet
shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles,
has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed,
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied
the vet..

"How can you be so sure?" she
protested. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or
something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned
around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later
with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on
in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his
front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from
top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and
shook his head.

The vet patted the dog on the
head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he
returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also
delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat
back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and
strolled out of the room.

The vet looked at the
woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most
definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and
produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..



The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!" she
cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!"

The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it,
the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the
Cat Scan, it's now $150."

Good one, Mark! I wouldn't really call it a kid's joke. Kids these days can neither read nor remember that many "word things all bunched together."

IKEA or Death quiz

You're given a name and you need to choose whether it's an IKEA product or a death metal band. I got 15/20. smile

Damn! I was really hoping there'd be one name that was both an IKEA product and a Scandinavian metal band. I guess living < 3 miles from an IKEA puts me at an advantage. Or maybe it's just because I'm gay?

I'm glad one of the 3 I got wrong was Watain, so I could see a pic of the bass player covered in blood.

Take note, you extreme Northerners! See what happens when humans don't get enough hours of sunshine?

Either one puts you at an advantage for enjoying meatballs!
