But man he's lucky, those original DS's are resilient little things.
Definitely. Once when I was at Wendys with my cousin, I was standing in line, and my DS slipped out of my shallow pocket and fell onto the tile. Not a soft landing whatsoever. Oh and the time I was standing at the top of the stairs, I was saying something to my cousin and I waved my hand, the one that held my DS, and it fell down the stairs and landed right on the edge, over the tile floor.
Theres a lot of incidents where i'll drop it out of sheer stupidity, but it still works fine.
