    Getting Even With Your PC

    I came across this earlier while searching for project ideas for old computers, and got a good laugh out of it:

    Yeah.. we once did this at university with old crap..

    We found out a couple of interesting facts.

    Monitors are quite tough.. you have to toss them atleast 2 meters before they collaps..
    and puters disintergrate in a nice way..

    Fireworks and old hardware is something to try too. Realy good feeling seeing old (broken) 286's explode into a million pieces..

    The disks in harddisks can fly for about 30 meters without an effort..
    ASCII stupid question, get a stupid ANSI.

    Wonder what would happen if you took a Laptop and spun it of a cliff.
    A pack of C4 and a PII would prolly make for a nice firework display...

    A friend of mine is in an industrial band that is known for being banned from everywhere they've ever played. Got to "help" them destroy some monitors, keyboards, etc. once at a show. I rather enjoyed that.

    cut the system speaker wires cut back the insulation and stick them into a chunck of c5. How far can you run before the first beep

    I'm guessing that those of us who don't run very fast shouldn't try this trick?
