When I saw it; I snorted my hot tea with laughter. Ouch.
Over in the comment thread on my H.B. 3200 post, I’ve recently been attempting to respond to a commenter who was rather obviously against the healthcare reform bill and who doesn’t seem to really grasp how to form a proper argument. Another commenter sent me a link to the following video and I thought it might be a good refresher on making an argument.
… there’s your sign.
You might be surprised at what you can figure out about your snowblower if you try. My level of mechanical expertise is a moderately complex Lego set, and yet I was able to diagnose & fix a problem with our snow blower earlier this winter.
The trick is to ignore the fact that you don’t know diddly-squat about what you’re doing and apply standard computer troubleshooting techniques…
1. Smack the device. Smack it HARD.
2. When Step 1 fails, swear loudly while pretending you’ve muted your phone.
3. Apologize for swearing.
4. Sacrifice a goat (or a chicken, but a goat is preferred).
5. If the sacrifice does not appease the angry snowblower gods, then try the other standard computer troubleshooting technique. Send it up to level2 support. :p
