Switch the mouse buttons around, and change the keyboard layout (Dvorak would be a good choice).

Edit some of the desktop shortcuts so that clicking on the icon for Application A actually runs Application B etc.

Option 1 : remove the disk-drive/s.
Option 2 : remove all the components.

We're still waiting to find out what happened.

Or did you bottle it at the last minute?
