« Part 17: Fancy a useless chisel? Part 18 of Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... series Part 19: Bit Too Many Bullets.... »

Boys and Girls,

We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)….

I held back this post after posting Blue hands #1 just to see if the rice trick worked on a Samsung phone… Looks like the Samsung phone reacted more to rice paddies than rice alone.

If you are forced to volunteer to clean the dunny, ensure you do NOT carry your mobile in the top pocket of your shirt.

While I learnt my lesson from Blue hands #1… closing the lid while brushing, was not a practical prevention.

When it inevitably makes the plunge into the blue depths, the Stupidity is not in flushing the toilet hoping to empty the cesspool water for a dry rescue, or even forgetting to considering the drowning phone might migrate into the S-bend and be lost, but for listening to the missus who tells you AFTER you’ve fished the phone out, to “put on some rubber gloves so you don’t get that blue stain over everything before you wash your hands!”.

This actually happened and in the morning, if I was a ”bigger mist”, we’d be called the Three Stooges… rather than the Laurel & Hardy duo!

PS. As well as black and green, Samsung phones come in Dunny Blue

PPS. AT least the exercise earned me a new phone (S10) and SWMBO, being there, had no choice but to believe what would normally be another ridiculous excuse.

PPS. I apologise for the lack of photos… for moral reasons, I just didn’t want to subject my camera to taking blue pioctures!

Just sneak into the kitchen and find a bag of rice, bury the phone in it for a while and hey presto its dry as a bone in a few hours.

Take it out and it will possibly work again, BTW don’t eat any rice for a couple of cycles.

No probs with the lack of photos I personally didn’t need to see any floaters or steamers anyway!

Did try the rice… that’s why I held posting this for a while… didn’t work, fully. I did get some response… got a screen, but phone, GPS, vibrator, sound, camera… didn’t work… other than that, everything else worked… hell, I could even put it back in my top pocket..

- LeeRoyMan

Hell, if marijuana is a stepping stone, I was up there in heaven long before it turned blue!

...it s blue agave on the rocks.
- pottz

Is agave something you smoke or something you give away? I thought Yankee generosity stopped at trying to convince the world that imperial measurements is justification for sideways pictures....
Have you notices the influx of those gutter crawlers lately. Some bastards have the audacity to post a correct oriented main picture only to include sideways ones amongst the rest… people have NO shame… The Donald should get his priorities right and declasre sideways pictures a capital offence… and upside down ones a double capital with a defibrulator in between the two penalties… I’ll volunteer mine!
