Poison apple

Given that Macs are known to crack up, cach fire and spew benzine and other hazardous chemicals out of the air vents, perhaps this was the envelope that Steve Christ pulled the Mac Air out of that time, and it simply shed some asbestos or something whilst inside?

If this was a kebab house it would be closed down by the environmental health, so why isn't this happening to Apple?

Vitamin C powder

Betcha, it will be someone adding vitamin C to their canteen fruit smoothy because it's not 'healthy' enough. Or some other ground up vitamin supplement... health nuts.

"Biohazard Suit"

I find it a bit odd that Apple's latest TV commercial is called "biohazard suit." Very coincidental.

Threatening pink and yellow envelopes

Hundreds of pounds of mysterious white powders enter US facilities daily in harmless-looking, pastel-coloured envelopes. Millions of workers put this unverified powdery substance into their tea and coffee. What is it? Who will be next? Stay tuned...

Brings back memories

When I worked in a financial services company here in Edinburgh, a member of the support team told me a of an incident involving a sticking keyboard belonging to one of the Traders.

The keyboard was subsequently found to have quantities of "a soluble white powder" gumming up the keys. Suspicions abounded, the traders were known to live on caffeine, and so, sure as 2+2=5 theories about someone moving up to something stronger were bandied about.

The tea lady solved the mystery - the trader concerned was indeed addicted, but not to coke or whizz, instead to sugared doughnuts, and refused to use a plate.

Street crudability!
