I've wanted to do one, and then take it into Geek Squad and ask them to upgrade a component in it, or to troubleshoot why the system isn't working after I purposely dislodge a RAM module or something lol. The look on their faces would be priceless..

The hardest thing would be trying to keep a straight face while playing dumb about it lol.

"yeah, my computer just wouldn't boot up anymore. I put it in this fish tank of oil and couldn't get it to boot, what do you think could be the problem?"

xD
