and did it forgive you? not mine! mine are all liquid related. the first beverage in my alum pb was beer. I turned it off imediatley and left it half open, upside down to dry. two [friends] started wrestling and fell on me with their beers. they managed to get half my keyboard(and screen) drenched. i almost threw them off the deck, but had time after the mad dash to find paper towels to cool down. my mouse pad was hurt. everything else was alright. when i clicked it, it would stick and go down with a "snap" and not respond quick. it would come back up but was stiff. then after my cats knocked a glass of water into it it started working again. Later i poured half a glass of wine in it. and to my surprise, it still runs like new. no probs w/ my mac at all. its been about 5 months since the beer. 4 for the water and 3 since the wine(red).hopefully the cats will poor some more water in it UPDATE: one and a half years later and the thing keeps on tickn.
