Silly me

Well, I managed to drop my hairdryer into a water-filled sink. Nobody was hurt and nobody was electrocuted, it just felt into the water and stopped working. The worst thing here is that it cost me a lot of money and it was brand new. What a shame. Later the next day I bought a dryer stand to prevent this in the future. Pretty neat thing because it's hands-free. It requires extra space though.

Accidental or damage

Well I have dropped several past previous tablet's on the floor not of my doing, due to roommates living conditions. That said I have my 2 tablets and still working on after 2.5 years.
My main worry is there is Emp charge and all my devices in my place get electrocuted and burning out components. Than I have replace every single device one by one, for eg Xbox one, smart TV, tablet's, roku box, PC & laptop etc!
People have to take care of these device's even if they look generic, at end of day replacement costs money and I have been there don't want to fix them unnecessary.

Mine was when Mint linux decided to follow Ubuntu into abandoning Upstart in favor of systemd init system. Added almost 1500 more files to an over reaching control system, removing the simplicity that existed previously in Mint versions 17 and earlier.
