    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?

    A person that has field day is way too young to need an iPhone. Is this a joke?

    Field Day?!? :p

    If you dn't want to pay apple almost half the cost of the iPod to fix it go here: http://cnn.cn/shop/index.php and just buy a 5G screen.

    EDIT: i see iHerzeleid recommended the same thing..

    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. :)

    I think he was referring to NeonFire, so the answer would indeed be Canada.
