This is a true story just happened
what could be the dumbest thing you can do?

 7:30 pm on Mar 29, 2013 (gmt 0)

Well today had an office worker come up to me and asked me why I drained the water out of his
mouse. He ,yep a Man, has one of those that have a floating deal at the end of the mouse in his case a school bus. I told him I didn't do it and really didn't know he had water in it. So he asked me how do I get it back in, <<bad mistake>>,
well I say bro if ya take a glass of water and dunk the mouse in the water it will fill back up and ya good to go.

Well he thinks on for a few minutes and comes back ask again I give him a glass tell him to fill it up and dunk it and it will fill back up. He takes the glass and goes to his office, I got to go see, so I go in sure enough he dunked it. I ask did it work? He saiys no I say well dunk it again and hold it down longer. I say yepper it's filling up I see air bubbles. Well he takes it out and then I say let her drain some and see if it works. Well by then I just could hold it in and bust out, then he says well now that YOU have
destroyed my mouse how will I get the water out. I said take it home put it in the oven a 375 for about 30 minutes, that should fix her right up.

Made my day.

a floating deal at the end of the mouse
some bus company came up with a marketing deal with a mouse. At the end were you palm sits they had a clear plastic filled with water or something not sure that a small school bus floated in. He came by me and said he was preparing funeral arrangements for his mouse. He took it like a man all I can say what the heck did he think would happen.. Electronics and water yea made together>>>>

Is that why I've never had an aquarium heater last more than a few years?

lucy24 intresting observation but probably the reason is they were only made to last for two years. keeps you coming back for more. Ever wonder wwhy you buy a car battery with a 2 year warrenty and it goes bad at 2 years. Not 1 not 3 but 2. I think the companies are adding a self distruct device in them to keep you/me coming back.

Not a good idea because if he actually did put them in the oven, and he seems dumb enough to do it, and all the toxic plastics get released it could be carcinogenic which makes you liable for telling him to do it since you already know he's as gullible as a kitten chasing a red laser dot right off the side of the sofa landing face first in the carpet.

Not only that, if it's a battery powered wireless mouse the batteries could rupture or even explode from the heat and the mouse could potentially catch fire and so on and so forth.

Yes, it's funny as hell but it's a BAD IDEA as I've known those silly enough to do such things and it always ends badly, especially if he decides the oven is too slow and uses the microwave instead! :)

TRUE STORY TOO: Worse case it'll melt all over the oven as I know this for a fact from personal experience when one of my daughters babysitters sat a battery recharger on top of the toaster oven, forgot about it, and then cooked something and the battery recharger melted on top of the toaster oven and yup, the batteries ruptured. Imagine the damage that would occur inside the oven. Ouch.

ANOTHER TRUE STORY: I once wrote a prank program for the director of engineering where I worked that globally hooked the mouse messages and randomly added a few extra pixels of movement and made the mouse skittish around buttons like OK or CANCEL and it was absolute hell to click those buttons. Put the prank program on his machine to make his mouse act wacky and waited. We heard him making comments, banging the mouse and the engineers finally lost it when we heard him take the mouse apart, clean it, blowing in it and really start banging on it. Funny as hell and the outright laughter finally clued him in that he'd been punk'd.

Bill your right, after I saw he was considering it I told him the frigging thing would melt, go figure, and gave him a new one.

Good idea :)

Never underestimate the power of stupidity, especially in the age of litigation.
