Software has been developed to reassemble shredded documents. The context for this is an effort to restore the records of the former East German Secret Police, the Stasi. Apparently the Stasi left behind 16,000 garbage bags full of shredded documents. Efforts to reassemble them by hand are going painfully slowly (Expected completion time - 800 years).

Personally, I would have started writing code halfway through bag number 1. Start with the corner pieces….
The moral of the story - be sure your shredded remnants are destroyed before they fall into someone else’s hands.
