    Gerrie needs to make some of those into "Caution! THIS IS SPARTA" signs. And perhaps find that sidewalk chalk artist to put a bottomless pit between the signs...

    Ruquay K Calloway, I'm curious to know how a hill outside Jerusalem was able to fix your coffee machine.

    I just hope Savvas was smart enough not to directly link his bank account to his paypal account.

  • KanjiMonster (unregistered)

    I have the exact same coffee machine, and I also did the same mistake at least once.

    Making coffee before you had your first coffee is complicated.

    Hence the value of setting it up the night before. That is, unless by "the night before" you mean 3:00 AM straggling in from the clubs bleary-eyed and bleary-brained.

    I use boxing in my code on occasion, but I don't think I've ever boxed a null.

  • jspenguin (cs)

    The empty box is not a WTF. If you're shipping several small boxes in a bigger box, and the big box isn't quite full, it's often easier (and more eco-friendly) to pack an empty box than to fill the empty space with packing material. You mark the box as "empty" so the receiver doesn't complain about missing pieces.

    Not sure what DaVinci wanted to convey with that logo/slogan, but what "Future Proof" says to me is, "We've taken steps to shield ourselves and our products from advancement and improvement, as evidenced by our logo... a 3.5 floppy."

    Is the restaurant WTF just that they used seven lines instead of one, or is there more to it?

    Unbreakable wall plates, eh? I thing we've found our new armor material for personnel and combat vehicles.

  • Diego (unregistered)

    The sign is a typical example of "macaroni english" translation. The meaning is "in the museum there are SOME (not "same") tortuous paths". The Italian word is "tortuosi", which sounds like "tortoises". Same sounds, same meaning! :D

    I remember a family I saw one day in front of a fishmonger, convinced that "scallops" and "scaloppine" were the same thing. :)

    Next you're going to tell me a dolphin's not a fish, and sending someone a text message isn't "pinging" them. In a programming language, words have defined meanings. Get humans involved, and it's (or its) a lost cause.

    This comment is empty except for a wet spot left by my coffee maker which was accidentally left open 24/7 because someone Please read not instructions this open to (briefly repeat the broken logo). Preventive Measures were taken to constraint the maze of twisty little passages, all alike on a wooden table with Irish Girl. Because someone had to do it.

    I don't intentionally block The Daily WTF either - they just chose put the images in a folder that hits the Filterset.G default filters.

    Instant Coffee would probably taste better than what he was going to get out the machine re-running those already used grounds. Or is it possible that picture isn't quite as candid as it pretends to be?

    I like things with "Unbreakable" on them. They're a challenge.

    A fella at primary school was once showing off his new "shatterproof" ruler. Within 10 seconds I'd shown him how to break it. Within 11 he'd broke it.

    Happy days!

    Despite how poor instant coffee is for making coffee, it makes excellent ice cream. So a bootstrappin'-good solution then becomes obvious: Ice cream before breakfast!

    I'm glad someone else caught this. Either the image is a poor reenactment, or some bastard doesn't know that coffee doesn't work for multiple infusions.
