 [ << ] Interesting, Very Interesting [ >>
Interestingly, when you fold a CD-R, it doesn't crack and shatter like a normal CD. You can, in fact, bend it all the way over until it's flat, and it will simply fold. When you bend it back, it will crack along the middle, but still not shatter in any way, and the colored foil topping layer will peel away and come off in one piece.

Further research performed while writing this indicates that this behaviour only applies if you fold it label-side in. Folding away from the label causes the whole disc to sharply explode along the fold after the stress point is reached, cracking into many shards (but two roughly half-disc-shaped pieces), with a loud bang and lots of confetti-like foil spray, which is now in my hair. Excuse me.
