 Funny you should mention the Macquarium. Yesterday on my way home I
 stopped at a used computer store and found a Mac Plus Macquarium with
 the original documentation dated 1992 (a mere $60.00 for a butchered
 Mac... I wouldn't buy one because I don't think it's cute and don't
 want to encourage this practice). The top of the case had been quite
 roughly gouged out, a glass tank fitted inside the case. I'd seen this
 on the web before but thought it was a joke.....

 Of course you guys have heard of converting a Mac into a fish tnak?
