HIJINKS HUMAN ERROR NEGLECT/MISUSE NEVER WORKED IN THE FIRST PLACE RAGE

"I have tried to change one of the pieces by hitting it with a hammer"

play-centre-hammer

That swing looks too high as well. Did you have to make the rope “fit” with a knife? And should it be sitting over concrete slabs like that? We’re no experts in child safety, but we can imagine seeing this scene in black and white in a local newspaper, two days after some sort of head/neck/spine tragedy has unfolded.

NEGLECT/MISUSE RAGE WORKED UNTIL BROKE

"Our little boy hit it with a toy"

Samsung-UE40D5520-broken

The trick is to bend one of their fingers back as far as it will go if the child looks like going near the TV screen. They soon learn. You can make them cry simply by turning to the TV pages of the Argos catalogue after a few “lessons.”

NEGLECT/MISUSE RAGE

"NONE OF THE ITEMS IN THIS LOT ARE NI WORKING CONDITION!"

controller-s-broken

We got through quite a few game controllers during our formative, more aggressive years, when every failure to complete a “level” was accompanied by a frustrated whimper, sometimes even a self-inflicted dead leg, and the controller, or the “stick of joy” as they used to be known, flying through the air from the frustration of having some 8-bit brain defeating us time and time again.

But we knew the value of things. The controller would fly through the air towards the sofa or the pillow. That’s the difference. Kids today know they can have another one tomorrow and won’t be told they have to wait until Christmas. So they can throw them at the brick work. Nasty little shits.

But 26?

The photographer had a little bit too much fun taking these shots. Picture #4 is bordering on the NSFW.

"GREAT BUNDLE FOR SOMEONE!"

Well, if we imagine there’s an infinite number of people out there with an infinite number of differing technological requirements, then yes, we have to assume there will indeed be a person for whom 37 broken, third-party, first-generation Xbox controllers is a DREAM COME TRUE.

"CAGE LAPTOPS"


Conflicted feelings today: Happy because we have a submission from “Ian” (Thanks Ian!), but sad because it’s brought this sad state of affairs to our attention.
Won’t somebody please stop this cruel trade in cage-fighting laptops?

“WE ARE OFFERING A CAGE OF 100 LAPTOPS”

No thanks, I’ll stick with free-range ones.

“WE RECEIVE APPROXIMATELY 200 UNITS PER DAY READY FOR SALE.”

By “Ready for sale”, I assume you mean “Ready for the bin”?
Or they’re ready for sale before you put them in cages to fight it out, then sell what’s left afterwards?

“DAMAGE VARIES ON UNITS. SOME POWER UP, OTHERS HAVE BROKEN SCREENS, A FEW MAY HAVE LIQUID DAMAGE.”

And some have had fluorescent tubes or folding chairs smashed over them?
That’s a few different categories ticked then.

“THERE IS NO GUARANTEE AS TO WHAT YOU MAY RECEIVE.”

Oh, I think you’ll find there is.
Guaranteed tat.

NEGLECT/MISUSE RAGE UNKNOWN INCIDENT WATER/LIQUIDS




Obviously, serial submitter “Hoopy” is feeling their territory is being threatened and is fluffing up their chest feathers and strutting about the place squawking

“See your iPod and raise you an iPad”.

I’ve got cockerels like that.
As long as Hoopy doesn’t start pecking any of the other submitters and getting on the roof of my shed I think we’ll be ok.

Apparently,

“It’s been dropped and damaged.”

Dropped and damaged?
Damaged as a result of the drop or just damaged as well, for good measure?
And as Hoopy wondered,

“Dropped onto what, and from what height?”

Obviously, your guess is a good as mine but I’d suspect it was with some force to bend the casing like that.
Think that’s good enough for me to tick the rarely-used “Rage” category.

“It does not seem to power on when plugged in.”

Really? Well that’s surprising.

“It does not include the original box or software and does not include the charger. “

Of course it doesn’t. They were probably sold separately, after all.
Or maybe they burnt up on re-entry to the earth’s atmosphere?
I mean, it was dropped from Low Earth Orbit, wasn’t it?

“There may be dents, scratches, or scuffs that don’t show up well in the photos.”

Is that because they’re hidden underneath all the other dents and cracks?
I don’t think you really need to worry about the unseen damage, I would have thought the damage you can see in the pictures would be enough to put you off. Having said that, it doesn’t seem to have deterred the 4 bidders so far.

“It is possible that this item has been exposed to liquid.”

Oh, just to make sure, eh?

"HITACHI L32HP03U lcd tv hd ready spares or repair"

“HITACHI L32HP03U32″ LCD TV,HD READY BUILT IN FREEVIEW,2 HDMI PORTS, 2 SCART PORTS ,COMMON INTERFACE PORT AND USB PORT CAN BE USED AS A MONITOR ,TV OUTER IS IN PERFECT CONDITION NO SCRATCHES BUILT IN STAND , COMES WITH POWER CABLE,BUT NO REMOTE”

Well that sounds pretty good.

“BAD POINT SCREEN IS DAMAGED BUT AS YOU SEE IN THE PIC IT STILL POWERS UP AND LIGHTS UP”

Oh right. Well, to be fair, Maplin sell a 6″ one for £19.99 so maybe £29.99 for a 32″ one isn’t such a bad deal?
And Maplin’s one doesn’t have freeview, hdmi or even scart.

“CAN BE REPAIRED”

Why would you want to do that? You’d just end up with a TV then, not this work of art.

I’m impressed (by which I mean ‘horrified’, obviously).
You don’t normally get this level of illiteracy unless the auction ends with the line

“Posted with eBay Mobile”

However, this auction doesn’t even have that disclaimer, so by the looks of things it’s actually been slowly and laboriously tapped in on a normal keyboard. Tongue poking from corner of mouth, prominent brow muscles knotted like old discarded marine rope, dripping with sweat from the effort of wrestling with such lofty concepts as spelling and grammar, as fingers like joints of ham forcefully mash the keyboard into submitting the most basic representation of the English language possible…a truly Herculean effort. But whereas Hercules strangled snakes at birth, mstaniec1 probably stared at all the wriggling lines under his words in blank incomprehension.
Honestly, they must make Sylvester Stallone look like Brian Sewell.

Chief Constable Campbell Corrigan probably looks like Mavis Beacon in comparison and he’s not even got past the logon screen.
