You don't see that every day

A man walked up to me holding a hard drive and a drill. "I need to destroy this, where's the nearest place I can plug my drill in?"
For a brief moment, I thought it was the start of a joke or a surprise episode of Mythbusters.
I pointed out where he could plug his drill in and continued to do whatever I was working on. Then it hit me: this was something I wanted to see! An overly large hammer drill punching holes the size of dimes into a Seagate hard drive. Get the popcorn, folks.
Spoiler alert: it was less impressive than I imagined. No pop or bang. No sparks, just a little smoke as three holes were made.
I still thought that was cool. Always wondered what would happen if you did that.
