The Amazing Waterproof Mouse

A short note: two days ago I was absentmindedly playing with my tiny wireless laptop mouse, flipping it around in the air.

Of course, I managed to drop it directly in a glass of water.

So I pulled the battery and figured I'd get another one tomorrow.

But somehow, after drying out overnight, it still worked.

This blows my mind, because this was just a no-name Amazon mouse. I assume if it was a $299 ergonomic gaming mouse, it would've shorted immediately.

I think Logitech is missing out on some money by not advertising it as a waterproof mouse.
