I was playing 999, and was perched over the back of the couch. I ended up dropping my DS. It went like this: 1. It fell on the floor and slid through the small opening in the handrails above the stairs. 2. It bounced off a long flight of stairs. 3. It landed with a disappointing thump onto the floor --- Guess what? NO damage! It looks and works exactly like it did before. --- It didn't even have a case! Wow, DS lites are strong.
