What to use a giant parabolic mirror in???? I need ideas. Answered

So yesterday I came across a decent sized parabolic mirror. It's good quality glass & it's polished nicely. I've never priced one but my dad was guessing that it's probably a $200+ mirror. I got it for $12 & I have to put it to good use. The only thing I can really think of so far is a telescope. Any other ideas as to what I could build with it?

Stud it with diamonds, launch it into space, wait for the right moment for the sun to hit it, and the Rule the Worl......wait a minute, where are you going to get a spaceship?

Seriously, too bad you don't have a matching parabolic mirror to drill a hole into.  You could then make that cool optical 3D illusion where you grab at something that floats in midair.  Maybe do some optical tricks with it.  Good luck.
