never underestimate the power of effing shit up
yesterday i reaffirmed my belief that when things break, all the they is a good smacking around to be fixed.
case in point - my camera broke a few weeks back. lens wouldn't focus. horrible beeping. no picture taking. this has happened to me at least 3 times now, and i'm tired of buying new cameras.
as my last course of action, i decided to thunk it with my palm. no dice. so i hit it against my shoe. then i banged it on my desk a few times. then i stood up, and chucked it as hard as i could onto the floor.
yup, you got it. works perfectly now.
