Took a non-funtioning keyboard and a burned out monitor to a gun range and shot them up. That was fun.. :-)

It's more fun to just open fire on them in your apartment.
Take keyboard, old motherboard, other stuff. Add small boy with a hammer and other assorted tools. Observe. ;)
The boys in the factory here have a fully functioning potato gun.
We all love to shoot monitors.
I'm saving them to make an office chair out of them (at least the frame - need a good cushion) - up to 13 so far...
Of course, the center piece of the back will have to feature the trs-80, sinclair, odyssey, and the hayes 2400 buad modem (ok - I'm a packrat).
Among a lot of posters of LotR, there is a 8086 motherboard in a wall of my bedroom. It's very nice ;)
And what about missburnt CDs? Use water and patience to get them totally transparent, hang them with a fine thread near your light or window and let them move around the thread. You will have nice color glitterings everywhere!
About keyboards... I have one that soon will be in the opposite wall than the motherboard ;)
CDs go transparent? How? I'm intrigued.

Put CD in microwave for a few seconds, label side down. Observe

I'm ashamed to say I actually have a proper use for one of my defunct keyboards. I have a PC dedicated to acting as a small FTP server for my own use, and the PC has an old bios that refuses to boot without one plugged in.
And I just added another one to the pile - full cups of steaming coffee and keyboards just don't mix...
I think I need one of those hats with a sippy straw to drink coffee with these days...
My daughter has my old dino-keyboard. She pretends to "work" at her desk next to mine and copies me typing on the keyboard.

But that doesn't make them transparent in my experience (yes, I have done it, I was curious -- about much the same time that I discovered wagon wheels will melt plastic), it just makes them all bubbly and weird.
On sleep deprived insanity, a friend and I microwaved a modem that was giving us trouble...It was like a lightning storm behind the glass door. Cooking it did not seem to solve the problems. I think we sent it back under warranty (c:

Wagon wheels will melt plastic?!
Can you explain?
