How about using it to power the compressor stage for a real (axial) turbojet so you can actually get thrust ?

I think there are places where the word “pre-drilled” (always past tense) makes sense. An example would be if a seller provided etched but bare PC boards for some project that would take through-hole components. The seller may indicate that you’d have to drill the actual component holes or that it comes pre-drilled. If you are providing instructions and drilling is a step, then you definitely would not want to say “pre-drill the holes”. Now, can somebody come up with an example where you could legitimately use the present tense, i.e. “pre-drill” ?

So for this Friday we got a batch of Actobotics kits with a slightly irregular processor module. It works just fine except it will NOT obey the first law of robotics and maybe not the other two either, but other than that it’s perfectly fine. So go ahead and pick up one of these kits at a reduced price.

In the eighties, we had “Men Without Hats”. The 2010s bring us “Some Guys With Hats”. The resulting music was equally as forgettable.
Cowboy: Alright Centurion. When I drop the invisible trout, kick it hard. We must eat or else we perish.
Hombre: Yes, yes, that is a tasty looking invisible trout.
(Moral of the story, better feed your engineers before they get in a low blood-sugar state.)
To be an employee of Sparkfun, you must be willing and able to wear many hats.
Centurion: (makes raspberry sound, NOT using mouth)
Cowboy: How could you not hear THAT ?
Hombre: Maybe if he does it again.

What the heck. We replaced each bulb twice, checked for continuity and it’s still not lighting up. (Guy on table) Bwah hah hah hah, suckers, I unplugged it an hour ago!
I like it, but I’d go: N-Can-Dance-Sense
The Sparkfun Shuffle rules - When the strobing stops, dance vigorously on the table for 15 seconds without knocking down the VGA adaptor, or the bulbs, or the projector, or the… table.
No public wish lists :(
