Funny, I place my anatomy on the back of my video card and that runs very hot. I still don't have burns.

HTF does he get burnt?

This is becoming old news, but still funny as hell...

In a word, this is why you should never EVER try to do a laptop. These things byte back.

OMG! HAHA

"He noticed a redness and irritation the following day but it was not until he was examined by a doctor that he realised how much damage had been done...Ostenson noted that the computer manual did warn against operating it directly on exposed skin but said the patient had lap burns even though he had been wearing trousers and underpants."

That is hilarious hehe

Please hlp me on the flickering on monitor thread.


EDIT by volt: stop spamming okay? if you have no input on this topic just don't reply, simple as that. Since I cannot email or PM you I will warn you in the public as you leave me no choice:

Do that again and I will deal with you in a different way. It aint a playground. I've been watching your posts lately and you have been put on my user-watch-list. Care to elaborate?
