Forget floppies, get cds.  

AOL sent me a pile of cds filled with junk (commonly referred to as AOL software), so I glued them top to top (shiny side out) and strung them up with fishing line to make a mobile.  

Hang it in front of your window, it's pretty cool.

You should spray some of them silver, and make a large mosiac picture of a floppy disk.

I heared, from a known and trusted source,  that it is possible to build a hydrogen bomb from 3 floppy disks, some masking tape and 5 hair pins.

BTW: My Trusted source is: School janitor

Quote: from Flamekebab on 6:15 pm on Nov. 20, 2003[br]Try get a load of working floppies and make a RAID array from them - it works - on Macs at least.



lol -that is great a floppy RAID array for home users to store their MS Word docs.  Magic.  Being a Mac engineer I will suggest it to some of my customers.  It's a very amusing idea made better by the fact that you are right it does work.  Mainly because Macs can do almost anything. :)

Run around to stores and put them in the computers.  People will try to start them and will be wondering what is going on.

I used to do this at school when I was really bored.  You can't get in trouble for it if no one sees you, and it doesn't hurt anything.

Edit:  In case you're wondering, the computer will try to boot from the floppy.  Since the floppy does not have the proper files on it, it will come up with an error message.
