So I tried to turn my 360 on and it wasn't working...

Then I realized the damn thing wasn't plugged in.

So I plugged it in and the Red Ring of Death flashed 3 times... I was like *OSHI-*

and then the RROD went away and my Xbox worked like normal...

Do I own a Jesus Xbox or something?

No, if there was a problem with the cables such as a loose A/V or something, it'll flash some red rings atcha.

One cause of it is having a loose power connection. Did that myself when I didn't plug the short cable on the power supply in all the way.

What is a problem is when the cable connections are firm and secure and it's still flashing 3 red lights. That is RRoD.

that explains it, my Controller was trying to power it on constantly and I just plugged it in, and I guess that was my Xbox's way of flipping me off.

Why do people say red ring? It's red lights, 3 of the quadrants flash in red. Sorry, but that's not a ring.

I guess because Red Ring Of Death is easier to say than: Red Three Quarter Ring of Death.
