Death of a Pager
Photographer: Josh Eckels
A nice assortment of tools
This one's mine
Three happy ex-Amazon.com employees
A little pre-destruction toasting
On the chopping block
Britt eagerly waits for his turn
Just a little love tap
Britt says a tearful goodbye
It's a tough little bugger
Making the pager dance once last time
Beck gets all strapped in
Some more gentle loving
The pager catches some air
Looking a little worse for the wear
Jess gets ready...
Jess gets set...
Jess shoots the pager (look for the blur over the candle)
Some nice distance on that swing
Play it as it lies
Jess, reporting for Amazon on-call
Britt's ready for another pager rotation
Sinister phase two begins
Securing the beast
One more for good measure
Looking up the proper technique, so as to not void the warranty
Getting everything lined up all pretty
Carefully following the instructions for "Turning the Pager Off"
Concerned faces underscore the gravity of the situation
A properly secured pager
Pager, with reference material
A little fire makes everything a little better
Just like making a creme brulee
Starting the gentle toasting process
Zooming in on the action
Burn, baby, burn
Time for the afterburner
Flames lapping at the pager
This pager won't be hurting anyone else
Framed for posterity
The finished product
