    why
    EDIT: so i found out what actually happened to it, and for any future souls who have someone that's obsessed with nail polish and leaves the bottle of nail polish remover just lying around, KEEP YOUR SWITCH AS FAR AWAY FROM IT AS YOU CAN. acetone got on mine, and, well... look what happened to it

    Damage report:

    Judging from the general filthiness of your surroundings, it might just be some killer bacteria in your home

    Does it boot? My first guess is the battery leaked. Just about the only thing in the console that has a form of liquid.

    Maybe the battery leaked does it power on and work? maybe something got spilled there and nobody noticed. I would take it apart and check the battery if it was mine but that voids your warranty. And the kickstand snaps back on if you didnt know

    if it did melt would this be the first ever recorded case of a switch melting?

    as i said, if the battery leaked would it just, not work anymore? it was on for the entirety of those 2 days, just in sleep mode

    WTF is that white stuff.
    Your switch jacked off.

    It does look like a battery leakage.

    Is the wood table affected? If it is it might be a reaction to the finish on the wood.. The battery is on the opposite side of where the reaction took place.

    Um, yes they can. If you have the money to buy a Switch, you have the money to buy a broom and a rubbish bin.

    So, what you're implying is that you're living in filth and aren't willing to do anything about it?
