One of the strangest moments of dedication to aesthetics I remember, was girl who had spilled soda on her Apple keyboard, so that the left portion no longer functioned. She just found words with those letters and copy-pasted them when she needed to use those letters. I offered to replace her keyboard with a basic USB black no-name brand keyboard, and she declined, she preferred the look of her Apple keyboard.
@viciousviscosity She should've at least opened keycaps and then she could type with her mouse. I had to do that when the ]} key broke on a MacBook, it would've cost more than a new MacBook to fix, and it was MADDENING, but I lived with it for a year.
I had asked her why she didn't get it replaced and said she could not afford it; I think apple keyboards were $99 at the time? That's when I offered to give her a keyboard.
