"Each of us is carrying an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on his back…"

The Macalope is now reminded of that line from “Ghostbusters” as he slings the pack containing his PowerBook mit explosive battery on his back every morning on his way to the office.

The thing is, the Horny One has become too accustomed to the “laptop lifestyle” to simply use his PowerBook tethered to the desk. And heaven forfend he should have to shut it down. That’s a once-a-month affair and only then to install an OS update.

So, for the next 4-6 weeks, the Macalope is living dangerously. He’ll take the battery out at night to keep his woodland home from burning to the ground, but the rest of the time it’s FLAME ON!

The Macalope was doing a little math in his antlered head and realized that 1.8 million 300 gram batteries is 1,188,000 lbs worth of landfill. Yikes. The Macalope would hate to live in the third world country that’s going to have to handle that. Although, with the state of consumer protection there, they might just resell them.
