Will all the electricity run out?

 

Jon

Yes, it will! But you can use a Power Stopper device, this will solve this common and anoying problem! It just costs 199 Dollar... I sell it :-D

No, but sometimes it's a good idea to give it a good shake, just to re-energise all those electrons that are inside it and keep it nice and snappy.

And when you flush your toilet, the water in the bowl will swirl in the opposite direction.

I turned mine on it's side to see if my three 980 cards would run cooler. They did run a bit cooler because when upright the bottom cards heat would go up causing the top card to run much hotter.

No, but just a single bite by a tiny little pony could actually kill a fully-grown hornet instantly.

An actual serious answer to a frivolous post.. and a handy tip for those who run triple gfx cards! :cool:

I can't believe anyone would get upset by as silly post, a sense of humor is a blessing and going through life in a huff is no life at all.

This is a good idea. Since an electricity supply normally has live and neutral wires, neutral being the route by which the used electricity returns to the power station after going around inside the PC. Leaving the PC tipped over might save on the cost of power cables by needing only the live wire in future.

True, New Zealand the toilet goes counter clock wise. Light Switches go down for on, up for off, cars are right hand drive and drive on the left side of the road

 

And for the record.....a PC sitting sideways in the USA is oriented the same direction as my PC in New Zealand as we are approximately a 90 degree angle on the other side of the earth, so go ahead and turn your PC's sideways

That's an entirely plausible scenario, but the problem with that is what's left after running the sim is strictly negative electricity so now we have negative electricity running all over the place with no positive electricity to balance it out and eventually it becomes an environmental hazard when negativity exceeds the positive. :P

If you make sure that the PSU fan is pressed tight against the wall, or say, a heavy book, that should stop the electrons from draining away and you'll be fine.

I heard it on the Wireless, that's what happens when you turn it on its side.  My electricity bill is high enough. I don't want to waste it

I took the side off the box once and it didn't happen then but with regard to your post, they wouldn't have done that back in WW2. I think they had buckets of cheap electricity back then.

 

Jon

I tried it.

 

Something went 'BANG'.

 

Ooops. :fool:

 

Regards

Bill

Maybe all the electricity tipped out. See? 

 

Jon

I understand what you're saying but that would be like doing a BIOS flash in DOS. Too risky but thanks for your help.

One of the other reasons I don't want to do it before checking with you people. Do you think it might stain the carpet?
