Title: crazy as fuck

ed I need your help

Post by shemp » Sun Aug 25, 2019 3:09 am

Recently, our electric oven went on the fritz. It began beeping randomly and throwing error codes. We were told that the circuit board would have to be replaced and it would cost $600! (No, I did not pay for the extended warranty, a fucking appliance should not break down after just three years!) I paid $800 for the fucking oven and it's only three years old! It works but the beeping is unbearable, so I cut off the electricity except when we need it.

I have two choices: I can buy a new oven or I can ask for your help. You have guns, and I need you to use them. I want you to come to my house and shoot the oven full of holes like a Swiss cheese. Then I will call the home insurance company and tell them that a crazy wild-eyed desperado rode through town and shot up my oven, and get them to pay for it.

What's in it for you? Well, you get to use my oven for shooting practice, and I might even buy you lunch if you do a real good job. So what do you say ed? How can you say no to such a deal?

The whole crazy wild-eyed desperado thing will sell if you add his pick-up truck had Florida plates.

This statement from some maintenance fella/gal that the circuit board needed replacing came after they came there and looked at the unit?

Over the years I have pulled circuit boards from all sorts of machines and the truth is we could guide you through a DIY right here and then start thinking about making that style a regular feature of this site.

While I think we could also set up that piece of equipment on a rifle range in such a way to create some serious challenge for any shooter --- long extension chord and shooting a certain switch to see what can happen --- it would be a whole bunch more fun to get back at the folks that made a piece of equipment that didn't stay operational for the proper number of years.

You fix that in a public display and broadcast to that company that they screwed up and that is a whole mess more good for the rest of the consumer folks and then maybe that company will rethink having those circuit boards printed in some weird place that happens to provide labor at a low rate and at maybe a low IQ. (Didn't name the nation or people with that low IQ, so no racism there. Just speculation.)

So what do y'all think? Wanna try for some weird Net history? This sort of thing ever been done before?

A review site.

The review is how many lbs. of Tannerite does the particular piece of shit deserve?

My goodness. What kind of round hit that target? Certainly that wasn't a normal assault rifle round, was it?

Well, that just shows how much out of the loop I am in this part of the world, as I sure didn't recognize that Tannerite asset. Then I'd say the safety officer for that home range in that video up a bit needs to go back to basic safety classes. Clearly that target was way too close to non-combatants. Well, maybe that is a poor choice of vocabulary on a home range, but still ...

Wouldn't a pair of binocs would be cheaper than that Tannerite? And safer?

Anyway, thanks for the explanations.

Who wants safer?

The whole point is to go boom.

Yeah but It's gonna be a lot harder to explain how a crazy desperado blew up my oven with tannerite. Plus I don't want shrapnel damage to the other appliances, although I suppose I could use a better dishwasher too.

I guess I'll have to buy a new oven, but I'm getting something cheap that doesn't have a control panel and computer chips, just dials and buttons. I can get one for about as much as the repair would cost.

But seriously,
It began beeping randomly and throwing error codes
The beeping comes from a little piezoelectric speaker on the motherboard behind the display. It should be easy to locate it and snip it out of the circuit. It looks something like this

The error code can be dismissed by covering it with electrical tape. That looks something like this
