Here's something you don't see every day

Start with an old SE.


Get rid of the interior bits.


Cut the top off.


Paint it.


That was fun, now do some more.


Hackity hackity.


Paint them too!


Now what?


Put plants in them.


They live!


Well, that's what I did with my weekend.

In the early to mid 90s, I ran the service department for an Apple store and picked up quite a few that were abandoned there. Then in the late 90s and into 2000 I bought a whole lot of them on eBay. I think I've had over 100 total over the years.

This dozen I did over the weekend is the end of my supply. No more.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits.
The rebels.
The troublemakers.

The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones,
We see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world,
Are the ones who do.
Btw, here is an extended version (from the Apple Headquarters):
