people: wow i love the new generation of Electronics, no moving parts means everything is completely silent!!!

@maffsie This tells us that you were born to talk to computers, not mere humans
@maffsie wait. You too?
@maffsie Listen to 2013~+ cars in "Aux power" mode they fucking scream like banshees
@Sir_Boops what is an aux power
@maffsie It's when everything is on but the engine is not running tl;dr
@Sir_Boops what the is the point in a car that is running everything except the part of it that makes it actually go forward or backwards
@maffsie Normally what it does is prime everything for engine start afaik
@maffsie most people can't hear that?
@maffsie I've got a video of me starting up an IBM PC Portable. Sounds like a jet engine, the way a computed should ;-)
