Why Eating Biscuits & Gravy At the Computer is a Bad Idea

5/2/19 The Smoking Gun:
MAY 2--An Iowa man facing child porn charges was arrested after he brought a “gravy covered computer” into Best Buy for repairs and a “Geek Squad” member discovered illicit images on the machine, according to a court filing.
Investigators say Robert Leo Watson, 54, last year brought his laptop to a Best Buy near his Des Moines home “because he had spilled gravy on the keyboard rendering this device unusable.”
Watson, seen above, purchased a replacement computer and “paid an additional fee to have the files on his used gravy covered computer transferred to his newly purchased computer," reported a Des Moines Police Department investigator.
During the file migration, “Geek Squad” workers noticed “multiple images being transferred that they believed contained child pornography.” The Best Buy workers contacted cops, who seized both computers as evidence.
People too stupid to stay out of prison.

The only time I ever took a computer in for repair - because the on/off switch wasn't functioning - I removed the HD before I took it in.
