Accidents waiting to happen

Just assisted to an awful scene at the coffee shop when a sleepy girl forgot she laid her earphones on the laptop and attempted to close its lid minutes later, and I had the idea to snap a picture of accidents waiting to happen to a computer.
Can you spot what unnecessary risks this computer is taking?
Coffee cup is too close. Should it be spilled, coffee will infiltrate computer through keyboard. Right, it is empty currently as I can't leave coffee undrunk.
Foreign object on keyboard. If you need to close the lid in a hurry, screen will likely end up broken.
Hanging USB key. A rigid protruding device may break if it gets caught by a hand, a cloth, etc. Worse, if the machine falls, it may even break the USB port itself.
Computer hangs above the void on one side. Fall risk.
