Sarah: Y'all ever busted open broken hard drives to steal the magnets and just have a pile of powerful magnets you have no idea what to do with

@refreshment where else are you gonna get really strong magnets and some perfect mirrors

@BestGirlGrace Exactly, how else am I going to accident pinch myself with magnets by fidgeting with them too much without a harddrive magnet pile. Computer repair shops are a godsend for piles of broken harddrives

@refreshment I only learned about magnets in hard drives a year or so ago, and no drives have crashed since then 🙁 In CD and DVD drives, too, BTW.

@sten I'm not even sure I own a CD drive anymore, I think the last time I used one was in 2017

@refreshment That means that busted ones should be almost free, and thus also the magnets inside!
