So video games just saved my life, or at the very least from a world of hurt. I was stuck between taking a nap or playing a game on the computer. I chose the game, and shortly after heard a tremendous crash from my room. A shelf above my bed, which has been there for several years now, collapsed. My head would have been right underneath that shelf. So yeah.
The shelf was had a bunch of resin/glass statues on it, and the load hasn't really changed since the day it was put up, so it's not like I just put something on it today and that's what caused it to give out. Amazingly enough, nothing was seriously broken and I found most of the bits that did break off.
Still, it's shaken me a bit. There's another shelf that was above the one that went down, and I've taken the heavier items off that one now, just to appease my own paranoia. Of all the things I have that I would've expected to go down, that was most certainly not it.
