Eons ago at Microdata we had a commercial grade bulk eraser which could 
do 2400' reels maybe a bit larger.

I wondered by one day with a new fangled device, a 16k eprom.  while a 
small chat developed by the table where
the eraser was, I casually put the eprom on the eraser, and turned it 
on, just because.

one of my otherwise smart colleagues looked with a concerned look on his 
face and then queried whether that
would work with the eproms.

don't know that he ever lived that one down.

Wish I had it, I'd certainly pass it along.
