Thread: Eleven-Year-Old Boy Urinates On $36k Worth of MacBook Computers

  1. #21
    Hmm maybe teaching (you know that thing they're supposed to do in schools) the kids better morals, parents play their part but schools are supposed to educate, and btw sack the numpty who left that kind of expensive equiptment laying around unsupervised long enough for a child to p#%$ on it!

    I agree with you about Greenpeace for the most part, but the malware issue has been [b]under[b]played, if anything, since the figures that have reported are only known cases. I do computer support for both businesses as well as house-calls and I see cases of OS X based malware all the time, and it's been getting a lot more frequent over the past year; it really is a lot higher than just what's been reported. It always is, no matter what OS you're talking about. News reports or reports from an A/V firm only reflect the people they've actually surveyed, but the question is how many other are there that don't make the limelight.

    This is why you only buy kids netbooks for school, nice and disposable.

    They should have gotten them Liquipel.

    It would generate a lot of goodwill for Apple, which they could probably use right now between the Malware items popping up everywhere and the Greenpeace protests.

    That being said, this kid was just plain dumb and I hope they lock him away for a very long time and possibly the parents as well, after all, they are responsible for educating their children about what is right and wrong.
    I wouldn't hope as much...

    Sounds like a case of more free-range children we have so many of today. No rules, no respect. Just how much liquid does an 11 year olds bladder hold? I can't imagine how this happened. Did he lay them out in a row and run along as he squirted?

    Right you are, I dropped my MacBook Pro in a mud puddle and it was there until I missed it! Got it out of the puddle, removed the battery, rinsed it with distilled water, wrapped it in a dish cloth (dry) and put it into a large container of dry rice. Got it out in two days and fired right up...no problems.

    What is a school doing with mac books? They should just have macs. How does one actually relieve himself enought to get $36,000 worth of mac books, even at 2G's a pop thats still eighteen. Is each "destruyed" cause is was slightly splashed? if they're not turned on would they even be "destroyed"? Some things don't add up here...

    "the MacBook computers were damaged beyond repair"- I call BS. They pushed that claim probably for legal and insurance reasons. Will there be urine on the laptops? Yes. Might there be some water damage? Yes. Is it beyond repair? Absolutely not. Urine isn't some sort of corrosive acid or gasoline and fire. It's really just smelly water... coming from an 11 year old. How much could an 11 year old possibly pee?

    This is an 11 year old kid we are talking about! You don't lock a little kid away for that.

    Give them a bath. Put an air compressor to the computers. Bake them dry. All should be well.
