    I'd believe it's physically impossible, along with the shavings of hard rubber and plastic that also came off the disk.

    This should be the Chip Chase Challenge!

    People should video themselves trying to tear up a floppy disc Chip-style.

    While yelling 'Courage!!'

    It's 2012. You should have added an option in the poll for "What's a floppy disk?"

    ^^^ That's what I was thinking...in his time, he had to push that wheel chair around..builds some strong hand and arm muscles. Sure he could do it. :thumb

    5 and a quarter inches? Not that I recall but it's possible. I've ripped a number of 3 1/2 inchers though. The actual disk part might be made of adamantium though. Those suckers are hard as hell to break.

    We're not talking about breaking a floppy disk apart, I've done that myself.

    Chip Chase tore the floppy disk in half. We're talking about "ripping" in the kind of way bodybuilders brag about when they do that to a phonebook. Not ripping individual pages out and then tearing those up, but the whole book at once. And considering plastic is a hell lot harder to tear in half than a sheet of paper, I seriously doubt anyone have actually done that.

    you could probably do it with the bigger Floppy discs (The five inchers)
    But such a feat would be incredibly difficult to perform on a 3 1/2" Floppy disc.

    To answer the Poll question, I've never heard of anyone Tearing up a floppy disc, nor have I done it myself. I've snapped many a 3 1/2" floppy disc in half, but I've never torn one in half.

    5 1/4" by the looks of it.

    I'm disapointed, there's no videos on YouTube of people ripping up floppy disks. There's videos of people eating Ghost Peppers, eating Cinnamon, and drinking a gallon of milk all at once, but not one of someone ripping up a floppy disk of any size into any pieces with their bare hands?!?
