Faking incontinence and other ways to scare off tech support scammers

I find a Brian Blessed style bellow of "FUCK OFF YOU CUNT" is a great stress reliever

Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

Call me an old curmudgeon if you like but I never had a problem with either VHS or vinyl. I have fond memories of going to the video shop with my father and picking something to watch of a Friday evening and when I started working browsing the LP's taking in the glorious artwork with my fresh wage packet (yes we got paid in cash back then) burning a hole in my pocket.

Nowadays all I see are fucking turbo-nerds being evangelical about "quality", bitrates and DPI. Fuck your bullshit, if a film/LP is good enough it shines no matter the bitrate or whatever. Bah humbug/Get off my lawn/etc...
