"Fun" things to do with spare thermal paste?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, a while back I bought a 30 gram tube of cheapo thermal paste (I think I payed $4 for it). I have no use for it anymore and was wondering if anybody knew of any interesing/crazy/fun things to do with the extra paste? I already tested it, and no, it's not flammable frown.gif.
Thanks for the ideas!

Well, everyone insists on testing toothpaste as thermal paste so logical comparison would be to try out thermal paste as toothpaste.

make sure to try a range and see a dentist for proper appraisal of results

This is perfect. It's the perfect travel size too! I haven't tried it yet, but i'll see if i could put a picture graph up. Repped for the epic idea smile.gif

Initial tester says "It tastes like crap, but my teeth already feel cooler!"

We used the standard "ll" pattern for applying the paste. Below are the results from the testing.

So that's how i spent my last 10 min lachen.gif
I'm still looking for other ideas! smile.gif

I know all this is tongue in cheek but on a serious note for anyone without a sense of humor these things may well contain metals such as aluminium or silver which can be toxic......so just a head up for the not so wise.
