    Talking How NOT to watercool. Don't try this at home.

    This is a good lesson in how NOT to watercool.

    It is too funny. Sorry if this is a repost.

    Marv, I have some images that sound similar to what you're describing. With a guy that took an ax and shotgun to his case, then attached a fan to one side (where the shot gun damage was), but it's pretty old.

    Talking

    ROFL!

    Though I do think the comment about shoving non-lubricated pipes of animal's arses was really uncalled for.

    I lightened up when the other guy corrected him to lube the pipes first

    the last post has a link in click on that
    he has a poll asking who fell for it or not
    must admit he lies well
    i was almost convinced until he "wrapped his psu in cling film" that went too far

    Yeah I thought he was BSin the whole time because I honestly don't see how someone can be that stupid. He did do a good job though at first. Maybe got a bit too detailed from the get-go (that's where I first realized he was lying), and then the cling wrap just finished it for me

    I didn't believe it until about page 3 or so, then I started thinking...damn, he really did it. But I must say, the cling wrap was a bit much. All in all a very funny read, and damn, I thought it was real for a minute there!

    This is something some of my family members would do.
