Good Idea, Bad Idea: RROD

I know what you're thinking: "This guy does not know what I am thinking." And you're right, which means I'm right, which means OOHHHH SSHHHIIII--
--parity error--
--parity error--
--parity recovered.

So, tell me about your problems. What went wrong? Should you have given your 360 more ventilation? More sunlight? Less water? Fear not, there are some very good reasons why Microsoft included a unique feature such as the Red Ring of Dextrafunctionality into each console.


1. RROD gives you your soul back. Did you look at your owner's manual? Me neither. But if you had, you might have noticed a slick legal trick Microsoft pulled when you bought your pride and joy. But if your 360 doesn't work, neither does this little gem.


1. RROD breaks your console.
