Ok, now awesome, but you watched it anyway!
On that note...
The only song banned by NASA.
With no real day/night cycles on orbiting spacecraft, the astronauts had to be woke up at predetermined times. They used music piped in from Earth.
This song was banned.

Tales from Tech Support (stolen from reddit)
So a little background about me. I worked for AppleCare for a couple years, about a year was in education and then Tier 2. Tier 2 was the top, just one escalation path. We handled all the safety issue calls. Most the time they were fairly mundane...
...an old all white flat panel iMac that had caught fire. Tier 1 agent comes on the line I ask the standard questions of him "is the customer safe, and fire put out" "kind of, fish arnt" is the response I get on this one. "Excuse me? Ok, well go ahead and bring him on I will take it from here."
Customer comes on the line, I ask the customer what happened. He told me that he was doing some video editing of a family movie, suddenly his system shuts down, and he sees the death smoke. I explain to him a part burning out can happen and normally is no cause for concern. He tells me hes not finished. He continues. He turns the mac 90 degrees and sees small flames out of the back vents. (at this point I am opening my 120 safety questionnaire). He then explains to me in his panic he, instead of smothering the fire, he picked up the mac, and tossed in his 100 gallon fish tank... Power cord still connected.
I sit there for a briefe moment, and have to ask, "are the fish ok?" "They are floating, do you reckon they're dead?" I turned the case over to the engineers and let them take it after I was done with the call.

Well that escalated quickly.

Maybe that's why it is on discount at giant tiger, or giant Lion since we are mixing up animals.
It'll look awesome along side my singing bass.
Maybe the guys name is Buck.
Boots you obsessed with fire today?
Guess I didn't notice the trend there
Had this happen at a previous job. Someone installed fiber from outside - but put the ingress piece upside down. First heavy rain all the water started flooding in from outside all over the giant breaker boards in the electrical room.
I always wondered If those would cause seizures in epileptic people. ..
