What will happen if I drill small holes in a flatscreen monitor?

I think he means he gave us details about his nonlethal air-to-air missile idea.


#82

No, Bill, you don’t know what I’m doing. You just got your wires crossed in a pretty spectacular fashion, is all.


#83

Haven’t you done this yet ? It’s not like you can’t buy another screen.


#84

He’s waiting for the grant money to clear.


#85

Ben Q is developing a Theodore Rex DX-proof monitor


#86

This is actually awesome. Thanks a lot, XPav.


#87

What have I done?


#88

Yes, your post at the top of the page doesn’t quote Lizard_King’s reference to your other idiotic flight of fancy, my bad. And the only reason I have interest in knowing what insanity leads to this particular venture is that I have a twenty riding on it with fire in that it will be mind-bogglingly stupid.


#89

fire would be able to buy a nice new pair of swimshorts. If I was telling! But I’m not.


#90

Is it still actually a bet if you both think it is mind-bogglingly stupid or are you just exchanging 20 dollars?


#91

Shit, I knew somebody would figure it out. We’ll spend it on drinks for the Qt3 Sailing Team…if Theo tells and his answer doesn’t sound like 7-year-old thought it up.


#92

Get one in for me then!


#93

I still think the swimshorts idea works better.


#94

If you think it’s a good idea, then there’s essentially no way in Hell I’d ever consider it.


#95

So… did anyone ever find out why Teddy Rexbin wanted to drill holes in his shit?


#96

So that he could get to the other side?


#97

Where’s the poll option for “Never was planning on drilling holes in an LCD, just wanted to post a big attention-whoring thread on Qt3 in between bouts of hand-gnawing”?


#98

Shut the fuck up. Anyway, how the fuck was I supposed to know people would go crazy over this?


#99

Because it was batshit crazy to begin with?

Has the statue of limitations expired and we can find out what the deal-io was on this yet?

The act of drilling holes in a screen is not batshit crazy in and of itself - it’s just really unusual and weird. It’s obviously going to depend a lot on what the actual idea is. A lot of unusual and weird stuff can make a startling amount of good sense in the right context. Like, say, tearing down a house, or holding onto the edge of a cliff, or whatever. It was positively irrational to assume it was for a crazy reason - though I grant I’ve given people plenty of reasons to assume it’s crazy since then.
And no, I’m not saying what the plan is. Ever. You might find out, in a roundabout way, but I’m not going to tell you. Not because of some petty revenge thing or whatever, I’m just not going to and never was.
I promise I will tell you guys if it worked or not, and will post pics … when I do it (no, I still haven’t done it yet).
I am honestly thankful to the people who genuinely tried to help, and am mostly just entertained by the people who went batshit crazy over this.
