Guai-Guai snack food used to fix computer equipment

Postby Zla'od » 27 May 2016, 16:42

For those unfortunates who aren't aware of Guai-Guais, they're similar to Cheetohs or Cheezy-Poofs, only sugary rather than cheesy / salty. The particular flavor we're talking about here is coconut. https://www.google.com.tw/search?q=guai ... BHkQsAQIHA

While visiting my school's broadcast technology center, I saw bags of Guai-Guais piled on top of some of the computer equipment. I assumed that the staff there just had an unusually strong taste for Guai-Guais, but it turned out that they were put there in order to fix the equipment. I guess this is more or less the same reasoning that leads them to offer junk food to ghosts every August / September, or Taipei City Hall to collect pre-owned (but not used, thank God) feminine hygiene products as lucky charms to help other women conceive. Anyway, this confirms my longstanding theory that computers are magic, and can't be explained by science alone.

I think Feiren has the picture of a Guai-guai stuck on a particle collider or some other high tech equipment. So it would behave.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
