ok so what happened was, a long time ago i came across this particular meme.
and so i was browsing fj while listening to music and this came up on my screen. my little cousin had wandered into my room without me knowing and being the child that he was, he believed it.
my cousin was one of those kids that always thought of others but wasnt very bright so he tried to do the "infinite electricity" thing. he unplugged my apc battery backup from my power bar and plugged it into itself.
it went as you would expect. badly. at first i didnt notice anything because it beeped occasionally and i couldnt see him and the battery(behind my desk). my laptop battery worked fine as well so everything seemed to keep working. unbeknownst to me, however, my cousin was resetting the breaker aqain and again to try and get it to work. this was an older model so i had already rigged the power button to alwayse be on because the breaker was enough protection in my mind.
my setup was a power bar in the wall with its own breaker. from there was my apc unit so that the power bar was more likely to fry in the event of lightning or some ****(hadnt accounted for retarded cousin ofc). i had my 360, tv, laptop and high speed modem that i rented from the isp all on it.
anyway my internet was attached to the battery supply and i noticed i want showing a connection when music stopped. i had thought fj had gone down at first and so i looked at my modem to see it turning off and on, then i hear a popping noise so i go to look and see the wrong thing in the wrong plug. i yell "what the ****!!?" and so of course he grabs the plug from the apc unit and plugs it directly into the wall instead of into the power bar.
this leads to power surging through all my unprotected electronics. this lasted for like 2 seconds then the breaker popped and the power stopped, except it didnt. the breaker on the apc was welded and kept feeding electricity into damaged circuitry. the smell of burning electronics filled the room.
and in the aftermath the dumbass cousin runs to mommy and so she accuses me of trying to hurt him with my dangerous setup saying she had told me that it would happen (lying bitch had never gone in my room).
and so here i was out alot of dollars because of a ******* meme.
understand why i dont miss it now?
