picYou’re standing by and enjoying a bonfire and listening to your iPod, suddenly a friend approaches and scares you. Your iPod fumbles between your fingers as it quickly descends into a firey grave. After the fire clears, you find your iPod burnt to a crisp… but it still turns on. The hard drive creates a loud “this can’t be good” sound and the outside of the iPod looks similar to a toasted marshmallow. The moral of the story… fire + iPod = bad.

Maybe he was playing something by Iron Maiden or Marilyn Manson and the subliminal messages told the iPod to end it all and jump into the fire!

I’m sorry, j-rod…  The question you were looking for was “What is “Sleep now in the fire” by rage against the machine?”

We also would have accepted “Fire” by Jimi Hendrix.

Gabe, if the story doesn’t interest you, here’s a news flash - you DON’T HAVE TO READ IT.  Really, no one is making you.
