Behold one of the most dangerous objects known to humankind:
This screw came off of my laptop display, in the corner by the hinge. I have been wanting a shiny brand new macbook for a while now, but, as you may remember, I don't have the money to update it.
I would go down to the mac repair store and have them fix it, but that would involve bringing me too close to the sweet sweet temptation of shiny new laptops, monitors, and ipads. Oooooh. To say nothing of all the fancy accessories. And the "new mac" smell.
I don't think I would be able to control myself.
*Also, has anybody read The Turn of the Screw? What a weird excuse for a scary story. Could someone explain to me the point of the title? Is it about torture on the rack? What's up with the passage "if a child gives the effect another turn of the screw, what do you say to two children?" "We say of course, that they give two turns! And we want to hear about them!" It's not that the story is bad, per se, but I read it and just never understood the point of the story or the title.
