My school had it's field day today, and well, let's say I forgot to put my iPod in my bag before doing the events.




My iPod, not a single incident from January 3, 2006 - August 31, 2007.

It still plays music, but it's like having a 30GB iPod shuffle.

To add insult to injury, when I discovered that the screen had been smashed, I was going to watch a video. :mad:

Field day? We had field day... in elementary school.

Back in those days, I wouldn't even bring my Sony Walkman (those awesome, yellow and gray rubberized cassette players) with me.

EDIT: And field day ROCKED. I was an unstoppable force in foot races. :)

Well, at least you can still somewhat see what's on the screen. I'm just curious how though, is it a different kind of display?

Hey i'm only 17. I dont understand your old people jokes.:)
Stick with simple jokes!



Sorry about your iPod! :( It's been a while since I destroyed an LCD screen, but I did b0rk a Palm once upon a time. Fascinatingly I've never done it to a cellphone! Or my 3.5 year old iPod or it's 5 month old lil' cousin. :)
