Convert it into an Olympic torch, light it up, and take it out jogging with you.

This is exactly what I did and it works great. I just drilled 3/32" holes (you'll have to check my blog on it for the accuracy of that size) all around the bottom of it and it does the trick.

I'm also in the process of converting one into an electic mash stirrer.

Fashion a shield from the cut top, a helmet from a dead corny keg and brandish as a mace. Head to your nearest Renaissance Fair.
