- You will not get electrocuted if your laptop falls in the bathtub

- But, still, that is a very bad idea.

And many laptops can indeed survive an entire SOBE orange drink being dumped into the keys, but it frequently makes the mmmmm key get all sticky.

Ahh, the printer

And this is exactly why I print out my alt.sex.stories bathtub "reading" instead of using my laptop there. Doesn't work if you want to watch movies though...

Make sure you dry it real good.

I used to drink Jack & Coke out of a 32oz beer mug at home, and one day I spilled my entire freshly refilled glass all over my laptop.

In a moment of extreme drunken genius it occurred to me that I needed to clean it out before the Coke dried and all the keys got sticky, so I unplugged it, pulled out the battery, filled my bathtub with hot water, and tossed it in to let it soak untill the morning.

Things were never quite the same, and one day about 3 months later it finally died when the HD siezed from what appeared to be rust.

This was nearly 10 years ago, but I still get the occasional ridicule from the few friends that remember.
