Plug your power supply (whether AC or IDE from power supply).

Now grab it. Don't let go now!

Now twirl it around in a circular motion. I'm serious. You know what will happen right?

The plates inside that rotate (they rotate? wtf?) will act like a counterweight to your twirling. It's amazing. It's like it's heavier than it is because of the inertia!

You'll also likely cause a head crash, destroying the platter.
