If anyone has or still stores data/information on CD's or DVD's and they are no longer wanted/needed, the easy, effective and oh so fun way of deleting said info is to simply put the CD/DVD in a microwave and turn it on for about 9 to 12 seconds. It will spark and perhaps sputter a bit but aside from a little bit of smell, it will leave marks all over the discs very similar to the Lichtenberg effect. It absolutely does work and I have done this many times with no harm to the microwave whatsoever. Those discs, however, are another story.

What's the Lichtenberg effect? Dampen a piece of wood with a mild salt or baking soda & water solution, wipe the wood, then apply around 2,000 volts to the wood from electrodes spaced about 4 to 10" apart. Better yet, watch the video for a more "enlightening" idea.
In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
