    Aside from the amusing

    Aside from the amusing absurdity of it all, I hate this!!! Love my old upright... made in a piano factory in Dorchester over a 100 years ago and has been played by 4 generations of my family. Okay I'll lighten up now.

    Sometimes it's all that can

    Sometimes it's all that can be done. I once threw an old upright off my porch. Only three feet, didn't do much. It had a cracked sound board, so wasn't worth the money to fix it. We then tried to take a sledgehammer to it. Also didn't do much.

    Well... don't leave us

    Well... don't leave us hanging! What did you do with it after you threw it off the porch then took a sledgehammer to it?

    Rot

    Let it rot for a few years. By then the wood was soft enough to rip the screws out of.
