"Do Not Connect"

That is the message I see on the back of a beer counter. There's network cable connected to it but right above what seems to be a type of midi port it says "Do Not Connect". So I must ask. Why the hell is it there? There's one on the other side so did they do it for symmetry? Symmetry on a product that's supposed to remain hidden from view all the time?

If you notice weird things like this, by all means post em.

Re: "Do Not Connect"

Is this like one of those, "Do not turn upside down" written on the BOTTOM of cake-box type things?

Or what about on a packed of nuts "This product may contain nuts" O F'N RLY?

Lol. Yeah. Those are the painfully obvious ones. Speaking of cake. How about Mickey Mouse with shades on holding a rifle and saying "Im your assassin"?

Re: "Do Not Connect"

A beer counter is a guy who counts beers. I dunno why he has sockets for cables in his back. But the sign (tattoo?) is probably there because he doesn't like people messing with him. I mean, you want people plugging a cable in your back? Heck no... do not connect.

(Beer count is at 5... hence the surrealism of this post.)

Re: "Do Not Connect"

My wife is a beer counter. She's one of the earlier models without a URL port. Come to think of it, I don't think she has a serial or parallel port either. She tends to rely on her womanly super powers to determine when I've had enough. Whenever were at the pub, a party or wedding reception, she gives me the old "make this one your last beer" cue a few minutes before she's ready to leave. I usually make the last one strech into 3 more. She counts them as my friends set me up with a fresh glass before I finish the one I'm working on. She always gives me the final BAIRTL (Beers After I'm Ready To Leave) stats, but never gets mad while she's driving my drunken self home.

She's been putting up with my crap for 23 years. On 6/21/06, we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary.

Congrats, I'm on 17 years with my designated driver! As fr as the thread, braille on a drive-up ATM machine boggles my mind.
