Default Death of a PC (56k is OK, but it may take a minute)

My friend had this old computer that was fried. He wanted to get rid of it somehow. He just happened to have a quarter stick laying around that was just waiting to blow something up. So we put 1 and 1 together, and blew up the computer.

And this is the aftermath:








We thought it was just gonna blow apart a little bit. It ended up throwing pieces everywhere!

Nicely done!


Usually my friend and his two brothers give it a 3 shotgun salute...into the computer. Not only computers, but TV'*, microwaves, school books, just about anything.
