Throwing Star with MS Office Installer

A throwing star+boomerang that also installs Microsoft Office

My idea is a throwing star that also installs Microsoft Office. It is made from a DVD-ROM, on which only the central portion contains data. The outer portions have cuts in a 'V' shape, which are bent out to form triangles that can cut flesh. It also has saw-teeth around the edge.

When thrown, it is capable of decapitating someone. It then returns to sender (how you catch it I haven't quite figured out yet). If you then need install Microsoft Office, you just bend the spiky triangles back down into the ROM so it fits in your drive, and install away!

       The movies "Krull" and "Mad Max 2" should contain clues on how to catch such a device.

       Our microsoft-hating president declared us an open office company for a while. We spent money converting documents over, found that most of our customers and suppliers could not use them, spent money converting them back.

       I have used CDs where the printing or labeling was so unsymmetrical that the disks wouldn't read in certain drives because the high speeds make them vibrate. My guess is that this would have littple or no chance of working just because of the air currents from the spinning disk, add to that the likelihood of unbalanced disks and it gets even less likely.   

       You could however make a fine throwing star with an intregal USB stick. Make one out of a hard plastic and you could put just a surface mount connectors on a USB sized protrusion and you are good to go.

       I have used credit card sized and shaped cd-roms that work fine. This should too - just balance it right.

       Or Open (as in OpenOffice, or open-source).

       I wonder which would do more damage to the computer, the throwing star, or the MS Office installation?
