chemical reaction had occured.
I use a Fellowes monitor riser like this one:
The supporting legs are stackable cylinders of various lenghts that
you can combine for different monitor heights. I had a few extra
cylinders in the file cabinet sitting on a piece of ruled yellow
Stuffed inside one of the legs, I had a nylon-wrapped silicon "stress
The kind you get a trade shows, that are made of the same materials
as many keyboard hand-rests. Not really a gel, but rubbery. The ball
and the leg it was stuffed into were likely in this closed file drawer
for 1-2 years, and not exposed to light or liquids.
The plastic leg where it comes in contact with the stress ball is
breaking down, and liquifying and has pooled on the sheet of paper it
was sitting on. The silicon stress-ball seems intact and the blue
fabric is taut. The plastic leg is softened and has growing stress
fractures as the ball trys to expand.
There is an adjacent plastic leg that was just sitting in contact with
the other on, not interlocked and now they are welded together with
ooze leaking out from between them.
