Olympic Committee finds use for surplus CD’s February 13, 2006

Has anyone else noticed that the Olympic medals
resemble computer CD’s? Well, there’s a good reason for that. It turns out the International Olympic Committee (IOC) was tired of throwing away so many AOL installation CD’s, so they began to collect them.
The IOC now has all of the Olympic medals made from the surplus CD’s. They simply spray-paint the right color (gold, silver, and bronze paint) and then tie a ribbon to it.
Earth-friendly medals! Ingenious!
