Well, you can join 6 together each, and make 3 cubes.

hmmm, i have about 30 floopies currently, and i don't even use them.
by brother does though, i keep explaining him once you saw 1, they are all the same, but he keeps opening them up...

as for what to do with them... try making a sort of sling shot using a couple of rubberbands and some coins.
I rock, and let no one tell u otherwise! :P

That'd be cool :biggrin:

1) Buy a few boxes of strike anywhere matches
2) Scrape the heads off said matches with a wooden instrument
3) Split the diskettes apart.
4) Smear nail varnish onto the the ring (the part that is read by the floppy needle)
5) Sprinkle the match heads onto the varnish
6) Seal the diskettes back together
7) Enjoy

Try get a load of working floppies and make a RAID array from them - it works - on Macs at least.

There is an article on it somewhere - google for it.

flamekebab: its pretty hard to put those damn things together... (from expirience)

IDEAS:
1. fill the floppy with vodka, tie it to a metal wire and ignite it!

2. fill it with vodka, eat it with fried chicken

3. make a small glass to store vodka in it

4. soak it in vodka and use it as soap

5. make a vodka bottle opener

6. make a cork for a vodka bottle

7. paste it on a bottle of vodka to hide the label from your parents

8. make a vodka bottle out of them

9. make vodka out of them

10. make a vodka glass holder

11. put in some alcohol with water to create vodka

12. sell them in the pown shop for some vodka
