    Frist!

    and now to read this spensor related article

    TRWTF is that the farewell message does not include the mandatory phrase "we wish him well in his future endeavors". This, as everyone knows, is H.R. approved code for "he wasn't fired".

    They just didn't stir it very well. Sometimes it is 70% ethanol, sometimes 100%, but it averages out to 85%.

    Oh I get it: the WTF is putting Ethanol in your car!

    The spanish translation of the ice machine is kind of a wtf too.

    The E85 is not a surprise. It's the legal minimum to be considered E85 (and also the most common percentage).

    And the E70 is what is typically used in the colder months of the year.... Known as the "Winter Blend".

  • Wino Larry (unregistered)

    In these tough economic times, E85 is a preferred source of eco-friendly hooch.

    I completely agree. Nothing like a fuel that gives you less power, can potentially eat through gaskets in older vehicles, and costs more to produce than what it sells for. Brilliant.

    The car wash Neil went through uses a revolutionary new process in which your car is scoured clean with ice pellets fired out ot an air cannon at close range.

    I got the first two posts with something relevant to say about today's WTFs, and nobody is replying to them. I feel alone and unloved.

    We all loved working with Joshua! We still talk about those heady days.

    Oh, and screw Adam. He was a putz.

    Obviously, they want Adam to know that Joshua contributed to company more than him.

    maybe Joshua did all of Adam's work. then the letter makes sense...

    I'm no stand-alone ice maker technician, but I'd be willing to bet the "ice shovel" is the device that pushes the newly made ice into the storage area. I'd also be willing to bet Dan Houlihan knows this.

    So... not all companies in the world with 6500 or so languages check their name and abbreviations to comply with English usage? Shocking insight.

  • Matt Westwood (cs)

    I interpreted the "ice shovel" as being the automatic device which transfers the freshly-made ice into the dispensing bucket. You usually don't want to touch machinery when it's doing machiney sort of things, and if there's a warning to that effect, idiots who poke their fingers into the gubbins can't sue the company when they get them mangled.

    As for "rootkit", it could just be that he's into bestiality with felines.

    And don't forget, "ass" is rude only in America. To the rest of the world it means "donkey".

    Er, which itself actually means something rude in certain slang contexts in the UK.

    I suppose you could always use the word "moke", but then that's an insulting term in Hawaii for a redneck.

    Must be tough being a donkey, I mean ass, I mean moke.

    There was a young girl from Madras Who had a magnificent ass Not pretty and pink As some of you think It was grey, had long ears, and ate grass

    Yes, because 85 - 70 is 20 and 105% is possible.

    Okay, so I rounded a bit. I was in a hurry. Try ±17.6471%, and remember that the ± is relative to the desired 85%, not to 100%. That is, you multiply by 1±.176471; instead of adding.

  • topcat_arg (cs)

    ahhh how lovely, the Spanish translation on the ice machine is a total WTF itself.. a missing space and grammatical errors... don't you love Google translator?? and how nice, you shouldn't be touching the ice when you try to get it off the machine... If you can't touch it, then you can't eat either?

    Okay, I'll buy that. We do get pretty abstract in here sometimes.

    Girls don't exist on the internet. It's only dudes (except children...FBI... bla bla bla).

    This rule extends to people pictured on the internet as well. Think about that next time you're surfing pr0n.
