Looks workable, but the keys might be a bit too "heavy" for me....: )

All of them...preferably in a HHKB layout.  Scale the size down a bit...or maybe make it one piece like that keyboard chocolate bar that was posted here a few times.

I think the 'End' key would be fitting for a stele like this (should be 2-3 ft high):



Or 'F5' for people who believe in rebirth.

That's kind of morbid, how about "Home"? For those who believe in Heaven and going to meet their Creator.

Or Pause/Break: "He went so suddenly..."  (this one's for some of the old-schoolers amongst us)

CTRL+ALT+DEL would be good for rebirth as well.  (This one's also a little old school)

Or Del.

If you use more than one key, emoticons and acronyms are another option:

But the stele is more elegant, of course.

I think they are more funny when they are commands, though. :)

For the record: this key combo forcefully interrupts execution of the current foreground process group by sending it the signal to TERMINATE.

I am Buddhist and I think the perfect key for that would be a key from a Das II blank.

if a das types in the forest, does it make a sound?

Heh...I was thinking, "If they'd omitted the keypad, I'd say that was iMav's back yard!"  Get seriously realistic, plant some ground cover in between the keys and get organic board chow!

I guess a keycap that big and heavy would need a serious spring under it, like a Mac Truck suspension coil?  I'd like to see someone buckle THAT.
