    Default Quote of the Day in re LAZERs

    Quote From ARRSE.CO.UK forum:

    "What's a lazer? Zimulated emitted radiation? Some new German contraption we've not heard of?"

    I deeply personally hate it to see posts where LAZER is used instead of LASER.

    "LAZER" always makes me think of the old Zima commercials from the mid 90's.

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Swami, I don't know about yours, but my Lasers go "Click, Click" when they start, NOT pew, pew, pew...

    me: At that price I'll send out a mexican from in front of home depot with a 12 pack of beer and a couple laser pointers.

    rave promoter: No, seriously.

    me: Yes, seriously. If other promoters can afford lasers with a door price less than yours, you can pay what they pay too. Oh by the way thats payment upon contract signing.

    rave promoter: well I'll get back to you "click"

    me, thinking out loud: "good riddance"

    some people........
    Wow. What did he say at the start of the conversation to put you in such a bad mood?

    I found this conversation actually very funny and I'm sure I'll say this to someone soon too.

    I hope not. Na´ve people often ask na´ve questions. Eventually they figure out what the deal is and when they do they will go back to the people who were friendly and helpful instead of the people who decided to treat them like idiots.
