Here’s a math problem for you: If you take the entire volume of urine found in the average 11-yar-old’s bladder and pour it over a school computer cart, how many MacBooks will it ruin? Answer? $36,000 worth, at least according to the Upper Allen Township Police department.
“An 11-year-old boy urinated on several MacBook computers on a cart in the Upper Allen Elementary School Wednesday, damaging them beyond repair, according to Upper Allen Twp. police.
The loss came to more than $36,000, police said.
Police charged the boy with institutional vandalism and criminal mischief and are turning him over to the Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department.”
Now, in his defense, he was probably drunk…
I don’t know… I hate to appear insensitive to the other students in the school, but I think these school officials are throwing the MacBooks out with the proverbial urinal cake, so to speak. I mean, realistically, assuming that when this kid peed on the computer cart it was holding 36 MacBooks, give or take, and they were probably staked, lid-closed, in some sort of shelving system, could he REALLY have totaled ALL 36? Or are these spoiled kids these days unwilling to use a computer that smells like urine? Back in MY day we would have KILLED to have a urine soaked computer, and we would have been THANKFUL!
