I’m glad to see I’m not the only one with this approach to engineering…

  1. Hahaha. That’s brilliant. I demand a follow-up story to determine if it actually fixed the airplane’s problem.

  3. Of course not.
    Everyone knows you have to use a cow for Boeings. Goats only work for Airbus.

  5. Beautiful. 🙂 Jason thinks it’s awesome too.
    It also reminds me of how next time I have a regular job, I’ve got to make a computer repair kit and leave it temptingly unsealed in a visible position. I never did get to see the leaps of startlement the first time around when they found the black candles and sacrificial rodents inside.

  7. Hmm… sounds like a design problem. Cows mean higher maintenance costs. I wonder if we could make future versions that required only chickens, or maybe flocks of doves?

  15. An interesting dilemma: does the sky god prefer a sacrifice of birds, or would he/she/it prefer you left them alive?
    Zeus certainly wouldn’t want you harming any eagles. In fact, I can’t recall a single instance of anything with wings being sacrificed to Zeus or any other Greek god. I’m not as familiar with the sacrificial preferences of other pantheons, though.

  17. I used to have a pair of SIMMs dangling from cords in my kit for the same purpose — I would wave them around the computer while examining it. It was great fun. 🙂
