When you drunkenly plug your laptop power cord into a surge protector, be sure the prongs go into the sockets, rather than have one prong in a socket and other one over the edge of the surge protector. That way, while you are waiting for some shitheads to log into EVE and you fall asleep with the laptop actually on your lap, your laptop won't die on you. This is beneficial because it should prevent you from throwing said almost new laptop against the wall in a rage, thinking said
almost new laptop is a piece of crap.

You can thank me later for such valuable insights.

To the wall. Not to, you know the sink or something.

Get a new surge protector too. One that's idiot proof.
