Geek Story

I went to an internet cafe in Koh Tao with my laptop. Next to me there's the owner unmounting a desktop computer. After a few minutes he comes to see me with the computer power supply unscrewed.

- Do you know where is the CPU ?
- The CPU ?!
- Yes.
- It's not here, this is the power supply, the CPU is here (I show him the radiator on the motherboard)
- Oh ok thank you.
- What are you doing ? It's not working ?
- No there was a blue screen with a title 'CPU' saying 'Illegal Operation ..' so I wanted to look at the CPU.
