I’m pretty klutzy, so it wasn’t very surprising when I recently missed the seat I was trying to sit on, fell to the ground, and spilled orange juice on my laptop. Luckily our web designer friend, Art, was there to the rescue. He caught my cup before all of the liquid spilled on the laptop, and gave me some wise (and, might I say, quite fobby) advice.
First, I gotta turn off my computer immediately for a day, which is quite hard as I can’t survive without the internet. Next, I need to bury my laptop in a sack of rice. Yup, I had the same reaction, too. Rice?! You mean my precious white rice that I eat every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Art said that it apparently soaks up some of the moisture from the computer. OK, it kinda made sense to me. But, my biggest issue with it was that it’s such a waste of rice. I asked Art if I could reuse the rice and cook it later, but he said he’s never heard of anyone doing that.
My question to you readers is: would you cook the rice that you used to soak up stuff from your computer?
