WTF, Who would want to buy a wet inverter?
« on: May 16, 2014, 01:32:15 pm »
Was doing image search, trying to find a similar UPS to the one I am fixing.
When all of a sudden, I get images from this Ebay Page.
Seriously, Go there, scroll to below the Yello table, and tell me if you would go for that inverter.

This was discussed in another thread. Someone found their stock photo account. It's even worse than the images I could see on eBay. It's bad, as in hilariously bad. The whole photo shoot has this creepy "I want to see models in bikinis and nothing else matters" vibe. It's very very strange.

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." -George Carlin
