Silly Tuesday: It Sucks!

Man, this machine is the thing! It dries walls in an instant!
No extra power necessary, just plug it in!
I see.
(Machine starts)
Now listen to this: the sound of freedom!
Okay, okay, I'll take it.
(Machine goes off)
GREAT!!! - Sorry: great! Where do you plan to use it?
In my living-room.

No kidding, we had this and another one for several weeks in our living-room after a little 'incident' with a water pipe. Two weeks after we moved into our new flat. Oh my.

Not good, didn't that machine have a small role in the original Aliens?

@JoeB: Now that you mention it... It was quite harmless and after several days our wall and floor were dry again...

@Mike: And I was believing you were only interested in culture travels! ;-)

We have a lot of people trying to dry out their basement here with the major rainfall we got last Friday night. Luckily my basement was spared.

@Steven: In our story it was a sloppily fitted tube. Soon water poured into the wall, the floor - everything was soaked with water!

@dkc: Thanks for your concern, fortunately this happened two years ago! :-)

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

@Jen: Be glad! You don't want to have such a device at home.

PD from Overland Park, Kansas, United States

Sorry for your troubles, but that machine is funny looking !!

@PD: With a distance of two years I'm able to fully agree to this! :-)

Looks like you have sort of a Two Cent conversation going here.

@Twelvebit: Pure mischievousness! :-)

@dj.tigersprout: This one is fixed, but we've found many other defects in the meantime. :-#

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

Oh NOOOOOO! I hope you got it all cleared up and dried out. Ugh! Not fun!

@Laurie: Don't worry, we're dry again! :-) This happened two years ago, when a small puddle emerged out of the floor and my only thought was: "Oh sh...!!!" :-D
