I just remembered another one! It is possible to torture mobile (cell) phones (yes that's right the phone, not the user). PS This may be illegal in some countries. Here's how:
Get yourself a box with a nice E1 card inside,
Write some dodgy software (at 3 in the morning when you're too tired to think straight) to call a mobile number, hang up if there's no immediate reply (instead of waiting for 30 seconds), and then immediately retry... D'Oh! | :doh:
Depending on the switching hardware in between you could get around 50+ attempted calls to the same phone per second - There's some chance the phone circuitry and/or SIM card will quietly die (permanently) under the barrage. Usually your own one, cause who else's phone are going to test with? D'Oh! | :doh: D'Oh! | :doh:

Not much good as an information source - but as we all know information obtained with torture is always suspect.

PS: If you have work colleagues who forget that 'mobile' means you should take your phone with you and it always seems to take 5 seconds longer than it should to rip the battery out of the back and toss it into someone else's 'round filing cabinet', then get yourself a 'Universal Mobile Phone Answering Device'. The UMPAD features a large solid paving brick. Repeated application of the UMPAD is all that it takes to answer any mobile phone.
