Our gadgets can at times be as frustrating as they are amazing. Sometimes you may even want to pump it full of lead. Those of us without mental stability, actually do just that. Like a man in Colorado who recently, after growing tired of his computer’s endless problems, took the Dell desktop out back and shot it. Eight times. Until it was dead.
The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that Lucas Hinch of Colorado Springs got tired of his Dell desktop not working right. It had been giving him problems for several months, and after not being able to solve those problems, he wanted some sweet revenge, so he took the computer into a back alley and shot it eight times. That must have felt amazing to him since it apparently frustrated him that much.
However, discharging a weapon within city limits isn’t allowed and he was cited for the offense. Lt. Jeff Strossner said, “He was having technology problems, so he took it out in the back alley and shot it.”
Now a judge will decide what the penalty will be. Hinch says he wasn’t aware that it isn’t permissible to fire a firearm the way he did. Well, he knows now.
