Default The death of a laptop.

Well sadly I must report through my own sheer stupidty I killed my IBM Thinkpad....I loved that ************ lappy. It was late, I was on darvocet, Xanax and soma.....and 1...yes I swear 1 beer.
As I stumbled to the bed room with my laptop and said beer I tripped....BOOSH...beer meet thinkpad...thinkpad meet beer...I heard the poor girl pop, the screen flared up then went black.

Now shes dead, I buried her out behind the garage and said a few words...she served me well....worse I spilled a Stella Artois on her....farewell thinkpad.

At least it wasn't a Gordon's Finest Gold.
That would had been a deadly sin.

You have my sympathy.

Did you bury the laptop for real or this was a part of the joke?
(cause pcbs have toxic materials that need to be properly disposed.)

Nope I really did put her in the ground, right next to one of my commodore 64s that died in an electrical storm.

I have a computer graveyard for all my beloved little electronic friends who served me well.

I was expecting a smoked dark and manly beer or ale. A thirst quencher that would put hair on ones chest. Not like a liquid as sissy as a Stella. Your laptop got b!+(#-slapped and refused to get up! Now what does that say about the laptops owner?!
