Well no shit. That's how it works?

Post your "Well, now I feel like a moron" moments. I'll start with the most recent one.


I'm sitting here with my laptop which has the little blue nubbin thing in the keyboard. I knew you used it like a mouse or a track pad but it wasn't till I was sitting here discussing the finer points of the Dublin Core, meta data and the future of AARC2 that I realized that with your fingers on the keyboard the little nubbin thing is much more convenient to use than the mouse or track pad. Until then I was trying to use it like a pointer device (no hands on the keyboard, trying to get the pressure right, tongue hanging out in concentration, circling the target till I just used the track pad or mouse)

Huh. Just makes me wonder about colostomy bags and if they are easier than getting up and all that hassle.

I only just recently found out after two years ownership that a button in the car turns up the display lights. I've been complaining about that for two years.

I of course almost never read the destructions!

Don't you guys know that you just have to push the "make it work right" button?

I once rented a piece of shit car from a guy so I could get to a crappy job interview. I drove for at least two hours with the high-beams on because I didn't think to see if it had Ye-Olde button on the floor. There was a lot of honking.

Back around 1994 I built my first computer. It was a blisteringly fast 486, or rather it was supposed to be. This was when they had a "turbo" button on the front because games and a few other applications couldn't handle the fast processor and would run too quickly. After being disappointed with it for a really long time (weeks, maybe months) I decided to see just how slow it could be and I turned off the turbo.
Turns out I wired it in backward and was blown away by the raw, 50 MHz power.

So all of a sudden one day my dishwasher stops working. It just wouldn't turn on, like it was getting no power. So I call a friend of mine who informs me that the switch to the left of the switch that turns on and off the garbage disposal, cuts power to the dishwasher. So I checked, and sure enough, I had turned it off by mistake while using the garbage disposal. Good thing I didn't call a repair service.

I can't remember any off-hand, but I love watching my mother-in-law lose her composure every time Norton pops up a window asking to update virus protection or run a scan. She always waits until someone comes home to click it closed for her. It's hilarious because she never learns!!

The other day I did ask one of the bosses at work if his son is selling Girl Scout cookies right now. Everyone else laughed at him because they thought I was talking shit, but I actually didn't complete that thought before I spoke, and it was too late! I felt like an asshole while I laughed it up.

It has a name... preferably the informal one.
