My new computer died and almost burnt down my house. No, that doesn’t make sense. My new computer almost burnt down my house before it died. It happened a while ago. At this point I feel like the president eulogizing the latest mass shooting while the next gunman buys ammo around the block.
The glib post I made about the last one self destructing is still on the front page. I feel like I was in the middle of burying my first child, only to have my second-born stumble carelessly into the grave and smash his brains out on his brother’s casket. Do I even bother with another coffin, or, do I just shovel dirt onto the mangled pile and pretend like I only had one kid to begin with.
I am not a bad person and I only use my computers to compute. I have not read the operating manual but I assume there is nothing in there about dying aflame in your bed if you try and watch three shows in a row. I can’t decide if I should write the company and ask what I am doing wrong, or, just start apologizing randomly to ATM’s and pocket calculators that I pass on the street. Do they still sell journals?
It wasn’t on top of bedding and slightly sunk down so its vents were blocked, was it?

I just remember seeing a viral warning, on social media, saying they tend to spontaneously combust if you do that. Snopes says it’s iffy but google pulls up numerous news articles about it happening. They collated some links here:
(I think some anti-spam feature is preventing me posting with a link. It was a stackexchange thread called “Can overheating laptops cause fire?”)
It’s a sad day…
