The Curious Case of The Fappy Keyboard

Lols. Lads, who wants to use this Fappilcious keyboard? We all know where we watch our favourite...ahem...lad mag videos. Perhaps this keyboard is a perfect fit for the deed. Perhaps white colour would've been a perfect fit.

And the best part is, even the seller's store is called "The Fappy Store" XD It can't get better than this.

In the honour of tech reviewing. Let's do a quick review shall we:-
- The name, incredibly suggestive
- Wireless portability
- Enables one to quickly put it away or cover the essentials if discovered

- Black colour
- Stains easily
- No cleaning liquids nor cloth included

How tax system works in terms of beer spend

Here's a fun and great read from an article in Telegraph>

--Describes UK tax in terms of beer spend. ---

Goes like this: 10 men go out for a beer once a month.

The bill comes to £100.
They decide to split the bill in a similar way to tax bill.
First four men (poorest) pay 0
Fifth pays £1
Sixth pays £3
Seventh pays £7
Eight pays £12
Ninth pays £18
Tenth (richest) pays £59
The men are happy.
The pub owner decides to drop the price, their bill now comes to £80.
What do they do to split the £20 fairly?

The publican suggests:
First four men (poorest) pay 0
Fifth goes from £1 to 0
Sixth goes from £3 to £2
Seventh goes from £7 to £5
Eight goes from £12 to £9
Ninth goes from £18 to 14
Tenth (richest) goes from £59 to £49

But the men aren’t happy….
The sixth man points out that he only saved £1 out of the £20 but the tenth man got £10.
The seventh man agrees, asking why he only got £2 when tenth man got £10.
The first four men were also indignant saying “we didn’t get anything at all….The new system exploits the poor!”
So the nine men surrounded the tenth man and beat him up.

The next month the tenth man doesn’t show.
When it comes to paying the bill they found they didn’t have enough money between them to even pay for half the bill.

And that, the article concludes, is how our tax system works. The few who pay the highest taxes do tend to benefit from tax reliefs and reductions. Attack them for being rich and the risk is they may take their wealth elsewhere.

For those who understand, no explanation is needed. For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

Chinese Electric Blower Reviews

I've had Chinese Blowers to clean computers from inside for a while. One lasted me 10 years with 6 times or so usage in a year. Well it busted a while back and therefore I went out to check which ones are okay to buy and cheap.

On snapdeal I had ordered twice for Rs.550/- and both times it came with broken nozzle locks in exactly the same location...weird! In any case, snapdeal returned it and gave store credit.
The review:-
- The plastic was crappier than the one I had before
- Made much more noise than the previous one
- Ugly grey colour
Basically I didn't like it.

I went to Lamington Road, Mumbai and bought a real nice one for Rs.650/-
It is called "Topline - Plus" Electric Blower - 230V-50Hz, 450W, 13000r/min, 2.3m3/min.
The Review:-
- Comes with an air bag, nozzle and extra carbon brushes.
- It is quiet unlike the Rs.550 really shitty quality and noisy blowers on Snapdeal.
- The plastic itself is better quality and feels smooth.
- Lovely Yellow colour
I'm happy and it does the job well.

Things to keep in mind...
Always cover the suction part
The bag is important to cover the suction part so that big dust particles doesn't get blow on to your PC components. you can always use another cloth also to cover the suction part (on the side).

No your components don't go bad
Nothing happens to your computer. Relax! This air blower works brilliantly well to clean out stubborn dust from your PC. Nothing else will. It isn't so strong to damage anything. No there isn't static build up. If you have vacuum cleaner with Blow function, then use that!

Keep your PC off
Keep your PC unplugged and then clean it with this. Also, make sure that you take your PC out to your balcony or near window to clean. There is always a lot of dust and it will just circulate in the room otherwise, and on your desk etc.
