dutch light

I was having problems getting my new mic to work on my computer the other day so I brought it down to the NUS co-op to let the "experts" take a look at it. They spent half an hour fiddling with it, poking jacks and devices in every hole, telling me about operating systems and motherboards, switching hard-disks, and finally concluding that I had to reformat my entire computer just so I could use the microphone.

Yesterday I asked Andrew over to help with the reformatting and instead he solved my microphone problem in 15 minutes. It seems when IT people have no idea what's going on they'll tell you to reformat. Kinda like how medics in the army face everything with that miraculous, all encompassing, life giving cure....Lactated Ringer's Solution. Better known as the intravenous drip.

"Medic I think I have a fever"

"Intravenous!!"

"Don't worry its just a cramp..."

"I.V.!!"

"I'm a bit hungry..."

"It's I.V. time!"

"Err...I have a third nipple"

"I'll just get the I.V. out of my pack don't you worry"

Ok ok fine I'm an ungrateful bastard.
