do you know those skeleton model kits with shapes [for bones] cut out of a thin sheet of wood? to make parts for it : a machine that fits [old or junk] cds in it ; with heated stamps/melters/cutters in the shapes of different prehistoric animal bones[with grooves for assembley] which it cuts/melts/stamps out of the plastic. instead of trying to cut them [causing splinter/shatter effect] or completely melting and remoulding the plastic.

       This would work with just about any plastic wouldn't it?[PS]: I don't think that is a good thing to do to your microwave (but I don't know that for a fact).

       Mihalis and I have found that old CDs make attractive coasters (depending on your decor). They're also quite useful as reflectors in the vegtable patch to keep the birds away. There is also quite an active market for old (music) CDs and even a few successful businesses launched around the selling of vintage disks. Aside from this meriad of other uses, any such flashy dinosaur would look way too much like those 80's Transformers toys.

       How about turning them into 45s? That would almost be the very definition of irony. Add some audio of Bill Gates saying "No one will ever need more than 640k of memory" and make it a fait accompli.

       And don't nuke them more than 5 or 10 seconds at a time...

       Even better, borrow someone else's microwave.

       Even so.

       I've used a small high temperature butane torch to create sculptures out of used CD's. They're quite cool, and people often comment on them. If you try it, just be sure to watch for dripping, and don't set the CD on fire.

       Unless you want to.   

       Got pictures? I'd like to see these...
