People will put ANYTHING into the opening of a floppy drive.
Every competent college computer lab keeps tools around just for that,
usually consisiting of some combinations of butter knife, hemostat,
long-nose pliers, etc.

We had an elderly applicant for a teaching position who tried to use one
of the machines in the lab. When he couldn't find the CD drive, he put
a CD into the 5.25" floppy drive. The college administration morons
actually hired him for one semester! (I mention that he was elderly only
to discount the possibility that he was too young to be familiar with
