Anyone wanna know one of my favourite prehistoric monsters?

TITANOBOA

A HUGE FUCK-OFF SNAKE. IT WAS SO BIG THAT GRAVITY WOULD HAVE CRUSHED IT WHEN IT CAME ON LAND.

I love learning about extinct megafauna, don't you? ^^


So I just saw a documentary on planned obsolescence

Remembered that my parents had some 'dead' small electronics

And decided to use my new found knowledge to see if, 1. It was repairable or 2. I could salvage components

Bilan? Turn out the blender send directly 230VAC into a small copper strip that is used as a switch, and, unsurprisingly, thus burned the strip. Probably repairable, if I get my hands on copper tape.

The electric screwdriver problem was easier to spot : some solder flaked off the control PCB, which explain why he could only turn one way. Though the question of how it happened remain : overheated? Or fucked quality PCB/Solder ? I'm unsure if I can repair it, but worse case scenario I just got a motor, battery, and perfectly working charger.

But yeah,in both case ?

Cheap shit and planned obsolescence.
