A man is reading on his porch when he thinks about getting a new computer. He gets into his car and drives to the computer store, where an assistant helps him pick out a computer and brings it to his car for him. The man drives home and brings the box inside. He unpacks a computer, a monitor and many wires. He then cleans off his desk and places the monitor and computer before plugging it all in. The man is finally ready to turn on his new computer and begins using it, but soon experiences a blue screen of death. He restarts the computer only for it to blue screen again, and he hurls it out the window in anger.[1]
