Burger King, KFC, ... McDonalds especially.

Don't forget Ramen Noodles.





Just kidding...

You shouldn't confine healthy eating to PC usage. Eat healthy to begin with and you'll be good.

Homework? I think a computer is really safe. Why would there be food/drink issues?

Yeah...you're telling me...

I spilled 3/4 of a can of Sprite into my awesome Saitek Eclipse.

Ask me if I was pleased.

I had to COMPLETELY dismantle the keyboard and wash the circuit board with alcohol and wash the plastic circuitry with water and a washcloth and let dry for a day or two.

It works now, but it's still sticky...and this happened a few months ago.

Ah...homework...

I thought this was for personal use...

Well then, don't spill water inside the computer...that's a good safety tip.
