Today, I’m going to teach you how to completely obliterate your computer. Some of you might already know some of the techniques in this guide, and may have practiced them by accident. I’m going to give you a lesson in transforming your computer from a technological marvel teeming with life into a pile of metal as useful to your daily life as a chunk of coal.

If you take a moment to think about how your life would be like without USB ports on your computer, you’d quickly find yourself hugging that little box of integrated circuits without question.
