Sounds like a perfectly reasonable excuse for a nuclear war actually.

OK, fair enough. We get the first shot at OUR dawn

perhaps it could be restricted to CD's and floppies thrown discus style. Those
using hard drives go to the sin bin.

A friend and I are discussing the relative merits of linear accelerator
CD launchers vs. CO2 / Air powered CD launchers.  PIC Controlled, of
course.  I think we'll DO that <G>

I managed to talk him into a safety metal cage around the launcher,
rather easily <G>  (Launch a CD too fast & it shatters, plastic shards
can be sharp!)

I figure these could hurt if launched as fast as they can be fired.  The
curve on a spun CD-Rom should make things interesting...

AOL CD's give you "Free" ammo, all you can carry off, too (I think North
America's going to sink under the weight of those dang things!)

If you cut down the edges so they have a more or less squarish-roundish
shape, they also make really nice cheap mirrors - for use as signalling
mirrors in your back-country survival kit [appropos in Colorado]. Use
the hole to sight thru.

Also, given the name on this thread, I'd say, if there is anything
"critical" about the timing of your CD launce sequence, best not to use
C. Wouldn't want our missiles going astray, would we.

The New Zealand national lottery used to run an advert for their scratch cards
which had Mum and Dad grabbing all teenage kids heavy metal CD's and then
launching them in a clay pidgeon machine so they could do pidgeon shooting
practice. It won some popular awards if I remember correctly. I don't know if
they still run the ad, as I now live on the other side of the world.

No, have not seen that ad for a while. Hang on a moment ...there's
another side to the world?...

Of course. It is flat, isn't it?

They don't bother now, for exactly that reason ;-)

yeah there is and the fun was in getting here. Hong Kong, Chinese airlines
inside China, train across Siberia, down into Mongolia, back through Russia,
Poland, Germany, car around western Europe...

The anecdote from all of this was having a tour guide in Mongolia asking us
where we came from. When told New Zealand, replied New Zealand? that Australia?
My wifes retort was "no thats like saying Mongolia is part of China!"

Instant understanding ;-))
