Put them in the microwave for the lighting show. The etch marks on the discs were beautiful.

When did AOL stop pressing CDs?  Are these things old and brittle?

I used them, and junk promo CD's I got while working at a record store, to mirror my bedroom ceiling. Shiny side down, of course.

DubyaHater: What's a CD?


It's a contract with a bank where you give them $1,000 today in exchange for them giving you $1,005 a year from today, but that's not important right now.

Awesome. We used to use them as trap targets. The rain of shiny particles was like a rainbow of musical fail.

Went to a local hacker thing 15-20 years ago, and we had an AOL CD fight out in the parking lot of the motel. Good fun.

I think I still have one of those guns around here. We played assassination in college, and that was my weapon of choice.

Tribes? They had a similar gun in Unreal, way before that.

I believe you're thinking of the razorjack, but that fired saw blades, not discs.

Also, spinfusor shots don't bounce, they explode (it's an energy weapon). It's like some sort of donut shaped ball lightning or something.
  // Both games came out in the same year (unreal in April of 98 and Tribes in November of 98), so it's not that "way before".

// and then, 1990 graced us with this.

Don't forget about the saw blade gun in Redneck Rampage.

Circular bladed weapons are part of history, they used to be thrown, so any designer who was paying attention to history would have thought 'what would a gun that fires this projectile look like'?
