Default Another reason I hate cell phones

July 23rd, 2016, 18:11
It has been a very trying first six months to the year. No need to get into all of the details but trust me it has.

So I had stopped at a little country store this week and got some great little snack foods from there, as well as some other things.

I just sat down at about 10pm, with some nice cheese's, pickles, meats and crackers with a full glass of pop. I haven't had much pop in the last while, I had cut it out of my diet so it was like a treat to have.

Was loading up HoM3 to play a map, took a sip of my drink, put the glass down, didn't see my dam cell phone. Well nothing happened to phone, but my gaming laptop doesn't work any more.

Using my wife's computer while waiting for a new alienware to be shipped to me.

Joxer, careful, that might be considered racist on this board.

I'm unfamiliar with the joke so please share, don't want to get in awkward situation somewhere.

Sponge would pick surface liquid, but can't "suck" the rest of it that went downwards. Rice can take care of it, dunno what chemistry or voodoo is behind it, but I've seen saving a wet phone by just covering it with rice.
Of course, it'll work only if laptop was turned off immediately after spilling something on it.

I can confirm rice works perfectly. Lost my phone in the toilet after forgetting it was in my pocket. Even after turning it on and off a couple of times after fishing it out of the toilet bowl.
I buried it in rice for a whole week.
