To be fair, I don't recall seeing a news report about the friend of my coworker's two sons. They were playing playstation and their friend was twirling his gun around, and even dropped it. He resumed twirling the gun and then it managed to go off as it was pointed at his head. Luckily no one else was injured.

Per that article, that corrosion occurs when the end is wet. That actually happened to me as well when the end of a fairly stiff generic cord plopped itself into a cup of water. I somehow doubt a micro usb cable that is plugged in and falls into a glass of water will do any better.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
