Destroying an iPod Touch


So this is my friends iPod Touch (2nd generation)

As you can see, she has taken fantastic care of it...

I remember Joshua Topolsky saying on a podcast a while back that he had never seen an iPod in such bad condition, so I want to know, has anyone else got an iPod which is more damaged than this, yet still working?

Some of the things that this iPod has been through:

  • Dropped in the bath
  • Buried in sand
  • Buried in snow
  • Dropped in the toilet
  • Tested to see how high it can be dropped from
  • Thrown at a brick wall
  • And finally thrown at me while we were cycling on at least three occasions

How do your "precious" gadgets compare? A majority of the damage done to this was accidental.
