    What's the scarriest thing today? Was it the missed deadlines? Nope. Getting cut off driving to school? Nu-uh. It's the fact that my expensive iPod In-Ear headphones survived the wrath of a washing machine, and lived to tell the tale. The sound a little wierd right now, but I think they'll get better. The bass response is less than before, but they still sound ok.

    Any other Apple horror stories of products that went from hell and back?

    My Apple Powerbook RIP. I used to have a 667 Powerbook Ti and one day during a camping trip I threw it out of the window of a pick up. accidentally. It survived that... the pick up was traveling across a sandy road at 35 mph. Perfect condition. Nothing broken save alot of nasty scratchs... I was like hell ya. Two month later, it was nabbed by criminals....theives....

    How do you accidently throw a powerbook out a window?...

    I spilled grape juice all over the top of my iBook. And stupid me, right after it happened I turned it on to see if it was ok! Of course powering it up fried it. Luckily I was insured.

    Learn from my mistake people. If you spill liquid on your computer, don't turn it on. Let it dry out before you turn it on.

I throw a bottle of water on her but i miss and hit the other two guys with ice old water... they get mad and busted out their airsoft guns and started to shoot me ...that was when i close my ti book and tired to shield my self...remember the windows were rolled down... ok a bebe hits the driver and the truck fish tails on the sandy beach at which point i let go of my ti book and it flys out the window.
