  • Answer to: Why did the Orange squirt me?

    After standing in line at the Orange Store for hours, we made sure to buy a whole bag of Oranges. During the teardown we ended up puncturing several of them. Yes, it does seem that the manufacturer has specifically placed an anti-opening defense mechanism in about half of the ones we tested. The device will occasionally squirt a jet of zesty acid all over the hapless user that is merely trying to repair or disassemble their product. The mechanism appears to be in roughly half of the models we tested. We still have not figured out how the mechanism works without electricity (Perhaps a pre-pressurized vessel)? Don't let that stop you! the result is worth the acid-in-the-face risk. Besides, Orange Co. doesn't own you NOR your recently purchased consumer good!
