I just set my laptop on a somewhat precarious position--one it's been on before without issue. This time it slipped and fell about two feet, bonking between a tile floor and a metal floor lamp in just the right way to slightly fracture the left hinge and slightly bend the back metal case of the screen. The screen and computer seem to be perfectly fine, but the lid now isn't--which means there's likely a repair trip to the Apple Store in my near future (probably tomorrow). Part of me wants to keep using the computer this way ("hey, you can open the screen as long as you pinch the lower left corner closed and pull it back and forth carefully!"), but the sensible part of me knows doing that is asking to make the problem worse.
