HUH? hmmm...i had the same accident happen to me, and that didn't happen.
Could this be a environment thing? I live in a tropical country - could
that be a factor? after all, tropical countries are by nature hotter and
have more humidity...could this be an underlying cause for the differences
in plastic quality? I don't know, just thinking out loud here.
