My turn!

1. Leave case/cover on
2. Switch on PC
3. Sever a mains adapter cable (fused at 13Amp or higher, like a nail for example)
4. Plug in severed cable
5. Apply bare wires to PC case

(True story)

take it to a building site and get a bull-dozer to drive over it

I liken the French/British relationship to a very old married couple who often think of killing each other but would never dream of divorce.

like the above and it's true  ;D

a sledge hammer can definitely put that machine out of commission.  A pickaxe would be even better. 

But, honestly, why destroy the whole computer?  If you don't want it, give it away.  If you're concerned about data on the hard drive, just destroy the hard drive.  A local computer users group here has recycling drives.  They destroy unwanted, i.e. too small capacity to salvage, hard drives with a smallish pickaxe.  If the drives are good to keep and put in a refurbished machine, they do a thorough data wipe before putting them in any working computer.

Yes but that way, you can't tell work that your company computer just seems to have stopped working and then congratulate you for making a convenient back up of all your work just beforehand.

Oh, and the truth comes out. You started this thread just fishing for a slick way to get out of having to work.  ;D

I don't own a company computer. Nor would I destroy my current system that I paid good money for.

I was joking. Did you not notice all the smileys? I figured it would be appropriate in a thread that is a joke in the first place.
