    Default Floppy Disk Self-Defense

    One of the pages I follow on "the facebook" posted this recently.

    I think it's pretty funny, and it also is related to one of my hobbies. I have lots of both "5.25 and "3.5 Floppy Diskettes. Using them for this purpose has never crossed my mind, but I guess offices can get pretty violent at times...

    My Packard Bell has never given me any problems which were it's fault, the Packard Haters can stuff it! :

    I've yet to see a Tyvek floppy sleeve produce so much as a paper cut.

    If one were being attacked by a rabid zombie consumertard, floppy disks are very effective. Just hold one up and they will run away shielding their eyes yelling "nnnooooo! it's oooooollllld! Reeeecyyyycle it with fire!!!". They are also deathly allergic to anything beige. However if one knows they are coming, it is more effective to set up traps using bright blue LEDs as bait.

    Whatever happened to good old fashioned mace. You could also keep a tube sock (I used to wear them, yes) filled with quarters in the drawer like Charles Bronson.

    Then again a 3.5 incher might be a fair substitute for a Chinese star.

    I'd probably grab a hot soldering iron or any of the nasty chemicals sitting on the table beside my desk.

    But the most fatal would be a Windows CD...that's enough to scare anyone to death.

    Her justification for the attack: "He showed me his floppy, and so I showed him mine."

    His comment after the attack: "She 'bit' me !"

    Marketing at it's finest, floppy disk is been great and has multi-purpose, you can use it to peel your apple, cut meats, and can be use in self-defense! But wait there's more it comes in different colors. lol
