Life is a learning process. Every day holds new wonders and revelations. Yesterday, for instance, I learned that solid state drives can function while entirely submerged in water. While wandering around The Floor I noticed a fish tank with what appeared to be a hard drive floating in it. Closer inspection revealed that said hard drive was connected to a freaking computer.

And, to make things crazier, that computer was playing video from the submerged SSD as I watched it. I even had the rep exit out of the video to confirm its point of origin. I'm honestly not sure if there are any practical implications here. But holy crap, isn't that weird?
