One of the B3ta team danced on stage at the Brixton Academy dressed as an enormous white rabbit, and lived to tell the tale. Confess the stuff – good or bad - you've done anonymously.

Why I hate Chad Vader
I've always been a bit arty so when I was in school I took a few art classes. That was a mistake. My school's attitude was that art was a useless distraction from more important things like sports.
So they put the worst students in the classes: students who couldn't be bothered to take enough credits, and mongs who couldn't do anything else.

My class had a boy with Down's Syndrome. He couldn't help it and I'm sure he was a nice person. However, I wanted to strangle him. Why? The teachers gave up on asking him to do anything other than eat snow (which he did obsessively and with joyous abandon) and just let him play with the computer in the room.
Whereupon some fool showed him how to find Youtube and he proceeded to watch the same 10 second Chad Vader clip OVER AND OVER AGAIN, repeating the one line of dialogue and howling with laughter every. single. time.
He did this every single day of the class.

By this time I was feeling distinctly homicidal. So I snuck into the room before class, opened up the computer, and disconnected the hard drive. I figured that would give me an hour or two of blessed relief before they called in somebody to fix it.
I didn't consider that when a computer refuses to boot up the last thing you're going to think is "Oh, maybe somebody disconnected the hard drive in a fit of pique." The guy sent to fix it tried everything he could think of and then decided that since he couldn't find anything wrong, the computer must be a total loss. He threw out the computer. And it was new.

If you're out there, Down's Syndrome kid, I'd like to say I'm sorry, but it would be an utter lie. You were driving me potty and I regret nothing.
As for the school who owned the computer--drop dead. You suck, and you deserve anything you get.

As tech support goes...
... that's either hideously incompetent or a good excuse to nick a new PC.

If a machine won't boot because it can't see the hard drive, you'll probably assume said drive is dead, but once you go in to replace it you'd find that problem.

You took the words out of my mouth.
You thief, you. ;-\
