My favorite part about this post is the fact there's a French magazine about Michael Jackson, called Black and White, that probably made my day

Can someone please explain the towel trick?

I don't have an Xbox.

If your Xbox get's the infamous "Red ring of death" the Xbox will not start, it will just conduct a circle of red rings on your light indicators on your console. So some genius fucker discovered if you wrap it in a towel, turn it on, and let it sit for 7-10 minutes; then turn it off, take off the towel, turn it back on and it will work. The first time I heard this, I laughed-but yet being desperate, I tried it. It fucking worked. It continued to work for about 6-8 months and it did it again. I did the towel trick again and hasn't happened since. I googled why it works and supposedly it gets the console so hot, it re-solders 2 connections back together- which some how came disconnected during normal use causing the red-ring of death in the first place- thus fixing your console. I can confirm, it does in-fact work. LAST NOTE- Everyone does warn to watch the x-box closely when you do this because it's a fire hazard.

There's an easy way to get rid of RROD. Crack the bitch open and clean the dust out you idiots. There are videos on youtube and it takes less than 30 min. I've done this for years

RROD is a general hardware failure, it's not always the same thing.

I don't even know why 98% of these were in this post. You'd have to be seriously fucking retarded to think they were even remotely true.

I spent years trying to figure out the mystery of this fucking ice key and the stop n' swop crap, and after so long, I find out it was a feature they couldn't implement because technology was upgraded. I swear, I almost killed someone. There has never been something I felt more strongly about than this item in my entire life, and everything I believed in was shattered instantly. Who else worshiped this goddamned liar? Anyone?

My xbox broke awhile back. Not the red ring of death but something else was broken (i forget. something about not being able to produce a picture). Anyways after calling microsoft they told me that I would have to pay 100 dollars. Seeing as I didn't have that money I tried the towel trick. It worked for about 4 hours and then I got the red ring of death. Which sounds bad but when I called up microsoft again and told them i got the ring they said that my warranty covered that and I got it fixed for free. Sometimes the towel trick works.

The RROD is actually caused by the system overheating due to an inadequate cooling system and the GPU partially unsoldering itself from the XBox's motherboard. At the shop I work at we use a hot air rework station to resolder the GPU to the board and extend the life by a few months, longer if the cooling system is modified.

As an aside, I think I know where the idea for #7 came from. The US Air Force use 1,716 PS3s for their computing power.
