My iPod Shuffle Died Yesterday

Through a stupid fault of mine, then some more bad choices by other family members.

How to destroy an iPod Shuffle:

Step 1: Leave in pants pocket
Step 2: Put pants in wash (front load cycle at 40 degrees celsius).
Step 3: Leave on laundry counter for 5 hours (not my choice, mum didn't know what to do).
Step 4: Get home, decide to place in rice (good way to fix it apparently).
Step 5: Dad gets home, the oven will dry it much faster he says .
Step 6: leave in oven (open door) at 50 degrees celsius, forget about ipod, come back ten minutes later.

All the plastic melted, got a good look inside it though, and it still works as a USB *two thumbs up!*

(not a 'u are really dumb etc, etc' starting post, just wondering if I'm not the only one who has tried... unconventional ways to fix iPods):D

Commiserations on the tragic fate of your iPod, and thank you for a hilarious (and awful) cautionary tale, very well told. Lol.

Cheers and good luck
