This guy needs to pick up the phone.
1997 called; they want to tell him that was the last year floppy disk drives were of any importance to the world. Honestly, I looked up floppies (isn't that what we called them?) on eBay and you can get a brand spankin' new one for about $2.97. Problem solved. Except a new floppy drive lacks sentimental value.
But it's 2009 — nothing we have has sentimental value unless you're some kind of hoarder who can't let go of things. And in that case, you should get yourself on teevee. And you're probably also the "sick mind" who steals things like this to hoard.
It's a vicious cycle — a cycle that started in 1997, of course. Just give this man back his floppy drive, you sick f*ck!
