Aren't they unclosed cd's? From somewhere I heard that if you close the cd session with your burner and send it back, they can't use it anymore. :)

Bah, lucky.

The one's I always get are just shrink-wrapped in plastic with a black piece of cardboard.

Yeah, same here. Some places, they come in nifty DVD cases!

They shatter real nice when you peg em w/ an air rifle.

I scalp a dozen or so from Circuit City every year just to use the DVD-esque cases as mailers for CDs I send to friends.
I have a couple dozen dead CDs being used as a wall border around my room. Along with dead floppys, gutted CD-ROMs, gutted remotes, keyboard keys, and two hard drive platters(really pretty)...

Depends what side u shoot them. I can't remember which is which, but on one side if you shoot them they snap or shatter, and on the other they just make little holes. Also applies to driving screwdrivers through them (something else i like to do when i'm bored :D ).

i get the most distance with aol discs.

no other cd seems to be built for flying across a parking lot like those things.
