So a six dollar set of speakers managed to ruin a six hundred dollar laptop through the oldest procedure in the book : breaking off the jack so that the metal part is left stuck behind, buried inside the hole, while you dangle the plastic end of it like an idiot that really shouldn't be buying six dollar speakers.
Thus therefore an order emanated from my fortress of evil yesterday evening, and it went "find me some hooked tweezers in this god forsaken shithole!" By morning I had word that the item was found, specifically in the medical supplies quarteri . I opted to go pick it up in person. This, because I couldn't believe the price. Here it is :
Twenty pesos is, of course, about two dollars and a quarter at the "official" rate, or otherwise a dollar and a half if you don't make a habit of breathing through the mouth. What a steel, eh ?
And here's the unquestionable item in question :
Good enough steel to take to the autoclave, and in any case worth every penny of the relatively few pennies involved. Thanks Obama, and don't forget now - if you've made an unaffordable healthcare, you didn't make that unafordable healthcare! It was there from before. All together now...
PS. Oh, the survivalism. Here's the deal - if you manage to cut yourself up, I could probably stitch you back together again for less than the cost of the gasoline the chainsaw burned to fuck you up in the first place. What a thought, huh ?———
