I remember one time when I was 11 I found a HUGE BOX OF PLAYBOYS, it made us some pretty money because some of them were back from the early 70s and stuff. WE sold them on ebay made a killing for dragging a box home. We kept a few.

No idea, but then again, what does TV's/Stereo equipment have to do with PC's either.

Just leave it

one time i was riding my bike and found one of these that turned on and worked, but the ports for the keyboard and mouse were like nothing i'd ever seen before, and when i turned it on the mains creen would load and it had a flashing image of a floppy disk. i smashed it with a sledge hammer, lol.
