Now admit it. You've always wanted to do this.

Already did, countless times. If you really want to, buy an old 386 from Ebay for 40 bucks and then break all your angry littl' heart desires to.

Yuppers, when my old 486 died, I did what I always threatened to do to it. Took a ball-peen hammer to the insides of the case, and smashed them peice by peice. (I advise using gloves and safety goggles.) Then I started a nice toasty fire in a 55 Gallon Barrel and tossed them all in. Stoked the fire good, and melted about 75% of the components.

Then, I went up a 15 story dorm where I work, and since it is summer, no one was around. With my boss on the look out below, I tossed the monitor out. It went boom very nicely.
Although clean-up was a bitch.

Is this the opposite of the PC vs. Mac conversation?

But Steven, I do do that. For money. Oh, I see -- it doesn't need to go back together again afterward. Nemmind.
