"Who lives longer? the man who takes heroin for two years and dies, or a man who lives on roast
beef, water and potatoes 'till 95? One passes his 24 months in eternity. All the years of the beefeater
are lived only in time."
Aldous Huxley (1954)
"One sort of believes in recycling. But one believes in it as a kind of palliative to the gods."
This much I know, Fay Weldon, The Observer Magazine, (30 August 2009)
Hard disks get too old, keyboards lose their keys, modems break, disk drives run too slow, VHS don't have a proper recorder anymore, wires get no plugs, screens fall apart. They are all abandoned somewhere, apparently useless.
What happens to these products when they are no used anymore and get trashed?
What is the best way to keep using these products anyway?
How can we exploit their potentials, their hidden qualities and unknown properties?
The answer is RECYCLING.
If we really want to use technologies to their best, we need to preserve and save as much as we can.
FloppyTrip is the new frontier in recycling. This brand new smart drug satisfies everyone, from the youngster who never saw a floppy disc before, to aged nerds nostalgic of the '80s design. Not mentioning those who work into recycling, those who need a new drug to stop feeling hungry, scientific researchers interested in new hallucinations.
FloppyTrip is for everyone.
FloppyTrip is easy to prepare.
FloppyTrip is cheap.
More importantly, FloppyTrip is legal.
How to make your own FloppyTrip
-1 Floppy Disc
- 2 tbsp cane sugar
- Dry Gin
Remove the metal cover from the inner memory disc in the floppy, use a knife if needed. Cut the
plastic part through the frontal surface. Put slight pressure on the plastic part and let the inside
memory disc get out of the floppy.
Fill a soucepan with water and bring to a boil. Dip the memory disc in the water. Let it boil for a
few minutes, until the water is completely dark. Turn off the fire, then strain in a jug, making sure
the disc is removed from the liquid. Add two tablespoons cane sugar and top up with a small
amount of gin. Stir with a spoon and serve hot.
