"We saw the MacQuarium and said, 'Let's put a bong inside one instead,'" Agapornis said. "We were probably stoned."


Probably?

Didn't you watch Pirates of Silicon Valley? That bit where Steve Jobs is rolling on E looked suspiciously like an Apple advert..

Still, "the Mac bong is the best thing to have around when you're listening to the first four Burzum albums," he added.

Is it my possible my enjoyment of Burzum could be increased through drug use? What would Count Grishnack think?

The IBM PC was created by people who drank alcohol. The Mac was created by people who smoked pot."

Hmmm. That's an interesting generalization.

If my rock pharmacology serves me, the proper accompaniment for death metal is methamphetamine- perhaps someone could use a Visor Edge as a line-chopper/snort surface?

I wasn't expecting much from this article, but anything with a sentence like:

"It has a lilting touch of death-like intoxication," said Prozac. "It's treated us well."

is clearly worth reading.

I sense a trend coming on here....

Bong-odore 64
Ninbongdo (Entertainment System, Super and 64)
Bong-station (BSX, BSOne and BS2)
The X-Bong

Where are my tools?

Most of the engineers I know wouldn't try to design anything on any kind of intoxicating substance.

This article could be on The Onion and not be out of place.

With most of the engineers I know, you would be hard-pushed to define the difference.

All I can say is, I hope the engineers you know don't work for a company that makes heavy machinery. ;)

kindall, I think the idea is that they brainstorm and conceptualize while on drugs, not that they actually draw the schematics while they're high.
