My friend and I were having an interesting discussion at lunch

What would happen if the Earth was spinning fast enough to
create a zero G environment at the equator..

Back when I was at uni (not that long ago) I only had a 286.
I saw this cool game of tetris BUT it had a few 386 instructions
in it.  So using TD I tracked these down, and replaced the opcodes
with interrupt calls and then wrote a TSR to emulate these opcodes.
A lot cheaper than buying a 386 :)
