The Day the Music Died

"Well son, now we now both things that happen when you leave your iPod out in the rain. It ruins the iPod and makes you really sad."

Yeah, not a fun thing to learn when you are 8.

Before you throw it out - put the iPod in a bag of instant rice... (still dry instant rice). Leave it in the rice for at least a week - maybe even longer.

The rice will absorb the water inside the iPod - you may still have a chance! I've done that with #1's cel phone after it went through the washing machine.

The key is to NOT turn it on. If you turned it on, and it "flashed" for a second - then died - you may have fried a component on the circuit board...
