Have you ever gotten so annoyed with electronics that you wanted to/have went out and just thoroughly destroyed (old and broken) something? Have you ever wanted to? Post your stories here, I'm curious as to who may have the best one.
I had my old Env2 phone, which was broke prior to this (So, no, please no "OMG RETARD I WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT", it really wasn't useful with both LCD's cracked.) It costs 54 dollars to replace no matter how damaged it is, and my warranty covers both accidental and intentional damage, and all forms of damage, even loss or theft, but the deductible is always 54 dollars no matter what.) So, I decided, "What the hell? Let's have some fun with it."
I took this phone outside, drop kicked it as hard as I could (It went over my house! But my house is rather small.), emptied both my airsoft pistol's clips out on it, then emptied all 3 magazines of my airsoft M4 on it (each magazine holds 300 rounds.) (I wish I had a real rifle to do that, but then again, I couldn't shoot it with a real one in my backyard) I then took a can of WD-40 to it (and a lighter ), and by now the thing generally caught fire. (The fire was applied on a dirt patch, just to be safe, even though 90% of my yard is still snow/wet grass and slush.)
If I would have had some magnesium ribbon (used my last bit a little while ago), I could have toasted the phone with thermite, but I suppose SOMETHING has to go in the "broken phone return" envelope (and not a molten puddle of iron.) They will wonder what happened to this phone, but then again, as it covers both accidental and intentional damage, it's really none of their business. And if they DO ask, I dunno. Let em guess. :
These are the results:
Also note that certain parts of the Env2 are EXTREMELY durable. (The keypad half of the shell, for one. Anybody know what it's made out of? Just plastic, or something else?)
Anybody else gotten the chance to enjoy old, broken electronics like this? Pictures would be really awesome. =D
