A res student made himself a bottle heater to keep himself from freezing at night. The student was warned multiple times by Selowe not to risk wetting his bed by keeping such an unreliable heater in his bed.

The stubborn and desperate student decided to ignore the warnings and did what he believed would work for him. When Selowe woke up, he found his roommate sleeping upright on a desk chair wrapped up in his blanket with his foot resting on one of his bottle heaters.

The first bottle heater spilled and wetted his bed and he had to make other sleeping arrangements.
