hah, my iPod survived 10 minutes in the washing machine. My dad threw my shorts in (I've done my laundry since I was 11, and this is why) and didn't check the pockets. I looked for my shorts, he said he was doin laundry, and I ran over to the washing machine, pulled out my iPod. Wiped it off... turned it on, and it was workin fine. The only thing is that the decals on the back came off, and the foam that goes on the ear buds got ruined.
