One of the best posts I've seen on neowin. Btw I hope this gets you to clean your mouse more lol. Canned air and a thin pry tool work. Depends on the mouse too.

Oh and go listen to ratchet(meow version).

 

I'm glad you like it :)

Hello,

I loled at the thread title :(

Mice aren't that difficult to take apart and clean.  I've been using the same one for the last 8+ years (guesstimate).
 
If it's worth your time doing.  Mice are pretty cheap, but you do get what you pay for.

 

Just throw the mouse in the washer with some clothes. -- let it dry for 3 days :p

:laugh:

As we pass the time, I'm reminded of the events leading up to what may well be considered the most ignorant thing I've ever done. It was the year 1998 and the going was tough. I lived in a humble (that's what well-off people call poor peoples home as to not sound quite so offensive) abode with my Father, my Mother and my Sister. It was a great and cold winter. Snow filled the ground of my Canadian town.

 

For some reason, which I cannot understand anymore, I took it upon myself to go play outside with my friend. Unfortunately, as this was a rural area, my friend was 1 kilometer away and my sole mode of transportation was my legs. Normally my parents would drive me to my friends house, but they were out to Bingo (That's what well-off people refer to as the game poor people play. so, when they finally do win, which apparently is never, they can discuss with their other poor friends what it was like to have money.... for a few hours....). If you're still reading this, the game has changed. Well, not so much the game, but the winnings. As it stands now I've found 10 steam keys laying around and I don't want them anymore. So, in 7 hours, when I announce the winner, I will also announce the 10 other prizes up for grabs. The winner of the Meow contest will get to pick any one key out of the list and the other 9 will be distributed, at random, to the other 'meow'ers. Good luck! So off I went to my friends house. A nice hike at -25 degrees celcius, if I do say so myself.

 

After a while of playing around I decided to jump on the Trampoline. I wanted to be superman so I jumped of the trampoline, into a pile of (what I thought was snow) ice. So, there I was, with a broken arm, no parents, no car, no one home for at least 8 hours. Sitting there. With a broken arm. So, if that wasn't ignorant enough. I decided time would pass quicker if I just went to sleep with it. So I did. And I didn't die of shock. And it all worked out.

 

There is no moral to this story.

I know what some of you are thinking, "That's pretty much everyone". No. It could be 1 person, 9 times.

Right meow, I'm trying to figure out, after living in Canadian winters, why you expect a snowbank to be soft. =P

One thing is certain from this thread: There is no meow that will ever affect this mouse the same again. It will be as if there are no meows at all.

To protect the world from crusty invasions
To unite all mayo within our nations
To denounce the evils of gunk and funk
To extend our reach to the scroll wheel above
Jessie
James
Team Rocket blasts off at the speed of light
Surrender now or prepare to fight
Meowth! That's right!

it got on fricken' everything. I didn't notice right away that it was on my finger. I should just get a new mouse.


I would go ahead and replace the finger, too... just in case!
