It would make a pretty good thump, but there's no way that scope could cause an earthquake.

I gave up on computer mice (in disgust) years ago. Went to a trackball, which allows me to pile stuff right up to the edge of it and it's still usable! Try the Kensington Orbit for a low-buck version.

I would love to have the top manager at my last employer be made to look at these desks and then be shown how productive and creative the engineers were. He was one of those types who had outlines on the desk for where the phone and pad should be, and he valued neat far above organized. The same mind believed that all engineering talent was equal. Need I say more?
