Self-Portrait 3

(no subject)

Microsoft is enacting a voluntary recall on Xbox power cords, because they've been causing rare instances of burination. Out of 14.1 million Xboxes sold, 7 people have reported minor injury and 23 have reported minor damage. That's 30 out of 14,100,000. That's a percentage so small that the calculator I used to figure it up expressed the result in exponential notation. That's 2.13^-6 percent, which ain't a whole hell of a lot. Not nearly enough for me to actually be concerned about replacing the cord on my Xbox.

I think I'm going to do it anyway, tho', for no other reason than the replacement cord is so goddam big. Now it matches the rest of the gargantuan fucking thing.
