Yeh. Shoot this idiot, and give the remnants of his mic and the rest of his gear to someone who will appreciate how lucky they are, and treat it well - but sell one item to pay for whatever it is that the cat needs (needs training or is unhappy because it lacks something, if it is whizzing inside). Problem solved.
Yeah, I thought I might have been sympathetic to this guy but then he related exactly how it ended up happening, and all my pending sympathy went away. The way he described it, it didn't even sound like the cat peed on it, so much as it rolled off the desk and landed in a puddle of cat pee which was already there.
Get the cat a cat box, and get the mic a mic stand. Both problems solved.
Clean up your place, dude. A lil less pot and a lil more sweeping and picking up the crap.
If the cat's pissing outside the litter box, something's wrong, cuz they don't like to do that:
1. the litter box is too nasty for the cat to stand [seems likely from the story] 2. He's really upset about something. I had a cat that did this because I moved to the city and wouldn't let him go outside anymore. We battled. He won. I let him go out often, and he stopped the pissing. We lived happy for years after that. 3. The cat might have a urinary infection. That happens to cats. Make sure he has PLENTY of FRESH CLEAN WATER, change his water every day [how hard can that be?], and everybody'll be happier.
Or let him leave if you're not gonna take care of him.
the cat does not pee in random places in the house. It's treated better than I am, and it's a mystery why the cat decided to pee behind a box, that was under my keyboard stand.
second off: the bottom rack of the stand partially collapsed causeing the microphone to roll backwards into the hidden bag/pee.(I'm pretty sure that's how it happened anyways) on a side note, I cannot find the allen wrench I need to fix this :(
third off: I thought the microphone was in the closet to begin with, let alone, not out on the floor, in some pee.
forth. the microphone only *faintly* smelled of cat pee at the time, after the rigorous cleansing. it currently does not smell at all, even though there is some corrosion on the body of the mic.
5th. anonymous, you can go and fuck yourself, you pious gear-worshiping judgemental shithead. and I don't smoke pot. thanks for the judgement.
Many Nerds won't be returning. Some old timers I remember from last year, people like Trenchcoat Mafia, Silk Dragon Shirt, probably won't be coming back next year. Spamming blogs I put their names up, immortalizing them, if only until the blog owner erases everything:::: 1. Trenchcoat Mafia 2. Silk Dragon Shirt 3. The Distinguished English Gentleman 4. Beta Nerd, and of course 5. Rosie The Transsexual Rosie's original name was just Rosie, due to his rosie cheeks. They shared he has a high level of knowledge, a tactic the gods employ to create a false sense of security. This of course is the segment which they dump so many transsexuals into. I too enjoy irony, and therefore Rosie has now become Rosie The Transsexual. Who else has a nickname in the NerdRoom?
I'd like to remind you many of the people in the NerdRoom are good men. I hope this is reflected in what they are allowed to learn and the progress they're allowed to make. I'd also like to remind you their predecessors, REAL nerds from a generation ago who fill the computer swap meet, are WONDERFUL men, and since I likely won't be going again I want to remember them as well.
Actually the comparison of the two is a testiment to the devolution of society which will be used as justification for the Apocalypse::: Today's nerds are NOT wonderful men. They grew up with the internet and many consider pornography as an acceptable vice. They gamble freely, enjoy evil imagry in video games, engage in sexual pursuits their predicessors never did. This issue is a microcosim of our deterioration.
You can't find your allen wrench cuz your place is a mess. You didn't know where your mic was cuz your place is a mess. Clean it up and maybe the cat won't piss on the trash (grocery bag on the floor? come on, man, get serious). Still, the cat probably needs to see a vet. They don't piss just anywhere unless they are sick or angry.
hey everyone.. time for a useful comment. So microphones.. people sing into them. People have bad breath. It's pretty common for live mics to smell like asshole after cigarette smoking, beer drinking musicians sing into them all night. A very good way to clean microphones is with cheap vodka. Takes almost any odor away.
