Default Galaxy S2 goes for a swim in the toilet.....and survives.

I am an experienced gadget user and still i have the one bad fault ,going to the toilet listening to music....because we all know it's boring.business finished flushed got up and somehow..somehow the phone fell into the toilet,2 seconds submerged.I immediately removed the cover battery and Microsd shook as much water out of the phone as i could,and it was surprising how much water gets into a phone in 2 seconds,turned on the ps3 and placed the S2 on top of the vents for 30mins or so, reassembled the S2 and booted...no Audio and it booted with a flickering screen,turn off and waited another 30mins after which it booted correctly ,after leaving it playing music with poweramp for 5mins the audio came back....Lesson learnt .
