or aquamarine


Anna saw this one on a library photocopier. Perhaps we should switch it with this one?

That’s an… interesting looking photocopier.

It looks like it was made in the Matrix.

Or from an old Asteroids cabinet. Seriously, that color combination does not look technological any more.

I'm no chromonomenclaturologist, but i believe that's indigo.

Kathy said...

It looks "Tron" to me.

That's not a photocopier. That's the machine to load a student card with money for the photocopier. It's a stupid and complicated system designed to drive students mad. That, or make them exercise more, because they are inevitably placed nowhere near the actual copiers.

I recognise and loathe that machine.

I forgot to say, the sign becomes even more confusing when you encounter certain models that feature another button, usually grey or red, that does pretty much the same thing as the blue one.

Stupid, stupid machines.

Jeff said...

So basically, euquae, the whole system is just in place to fuck with students trying to copy things in the middle of the night while over-caffeinated and full of Taco Bell?

john said...

Yeah, I remember those. That sounds about right.

Eaquae Legit said...

No, Jeff, because that would require that the machine be available in the middle of the night. The library closes at 10.

Do I have a lot of repressed anger towards these machines? Well, it's not exactly "repressed," per se...

"John" called it. Obviously the person who wrote the sign was disgusted with his/her superior's poor color sense and insistence that the button be called blue when it's clearly indigo.

This is something used at the University of Toronto. The damn machine only takes certain kinds of coins. Like ea quae legit, I hate that machine intensely.
