I'm going to destroy my ipod touch, how should I do it? Answered

Okay, so I got an ipod touch from my friend for thirty bucks, 3rd gen, with a broken touchscreen.  About two weeks later, (I'm not sure how exactly) the logic board got fried and now all it does is rapidly overheat.  So, the screen still looks fine.  I don't know exactly how many votes  I'm going to get, but I would sure like to have some suggestions, any input would be great.  I will post pictures of the un-damaged ipod when I get ahold of my mom's camera.




May I be the first to suggest the classic "blender" method?

Isn't that what your forum topic is for?

Otherwise, you can tweet the URL of the topic, post it on FaceBook etc...

yes, but a lot of people follow you and read everything you post (myself included). However, if you don't want to, I understand, and that's okay.

Oh, I see.

Thank you for the complement. I guess plenty of people will be reading this, then?

The stuff I said about twitter & facebook still stand, though.

Yup, this will be going on facebook in the morning, although it would mean the world to me if you made a forum post to let people know about this. If not, I understand. I once had some random instructables member pm me to vote for his contest entry. I didn't like his entry, so I refused to vote, simple as that, so, again, whatever. :)

I think what Kiteman means is that the people who subscribe or just pay attention to him will have already seen this forum topic (since they'll have seen his posts). I can tell you that's why I looked at it :-)

In any event, make sure you post a video of whatever you decide to do! It'll be great fun.

I have a number of ideas:

-stomp on it
-put the tip of a screwdriver on the screen, and hit it with a hammer
-shoot it with a shot gun
-shoot it with a BB gun
-throw it at the wall
-throw it at the sidewalk
-prop it up on the sidewalk and kick it perpendicular to the screen

That's all I have :)

Ooh, more ideas:

-put it between the door and the door jam where the hinges are, and slam the door shut (my favorite idea)
-drop a 50lb weight on it
-go at it with an axe

i like the microwave idea, but what about just getting a good old sledge hammer and smacking the crap out of it...
you will get much more enjoyment out of it.

I'm going to have to add in another vote in for thermite.

Give it to my 3 year old grandson. :D

put the thing in a huge block of ice and light some thermite on top of it.

Drop a Nokia on it.

Or, thermite!

Destroy it in a manner that teaches you to never buy an Apple product again. Eating it might work.

Step 1. Find a microwave oven (not the one your family use)
Step 2.Set up a video camera Mythbusters style to record the action.
Step 3. I'll leave the rest to your imagination.

Go to the closest truck stop. Smile, look for a nce driver who will let you set the ipod gently on the ground, in front of the steer tire, ask if you can blow the air horn, and let ths driver roll forward a few inches.......Have a friend video and put on utube..........
Memories, like the corners of our minds................
