Shenzhen’s Finest

I have a love-hate relationship with the businesses in Shenzhen, China.

On the upside (actually downside?) they are THE one and only place where most electronics come from in the world now.

On the downside it’s a city of thieves and bullshit artists.

Nice try

I laughed upon this arriving. It was supposed to be a black bodysuit I was going to use as the (lazy) beginnings of a Chat Noir costume. What they sent was a tiny envelope with two silicone rubber bands in it.

Since it was an eBay purchase, I’m about 99.9% sure eBay will side with me if the seller balks at a refund. Still, WAFWOT: what a flipping waste of time

Oops, guess I should write a TV reception guide

Or buy and resell cheap rabbit ear antennas as a barely legal hack device to fellow millenials

Yes in the actual article they interview people who can’t believe receiving free to air television is legal

What's the purpose of these neat looking hinged flaps?

Sorry about the stray marks, I’ve been asked to respect the secret identity of my client. You’re not cleared for that. Fnord!

Fone Kompany Phunnies?

We’ve been having massive problems with telecom outages today and may have an insight into the cause….

Uhhhhhhhhh

Welcome to South Florida. Beeeeeyotch! ¡De Pinga!

That was the most polite defacement ever

But alas, the fact someone got in here means I have to clean everything out and ensure there are no curious backdoors now. Still though, I am absolutely loving the fact that whoever posted that used my lulz category and didn’t do any bizarre damage or remove my content.

Kudos to… whoever you are 😉

I’m leaving the post in place because I consider website defacements to be a really interesting sort of digital art, worthy of preservation (in the same way that vintage graffiti is).
