I need some advice on the quickest way to make hops go stale. Anyone?

I'd think the best way to do it would be
a) Pellets: Leave them out in room temperature
b) Whole leaf: Don't dry them, and then do a)
c) For both: Yell and scream at them twice a day

What was your "process"?
During the summer, you could stick them up in the attic for a month.

I would put them in a paper bag, then keep them out in the warmest part of the house. Eventually the hops will get cheesy smelling. Then after that, they will loose their aroma. Many Belgian companies like to age their hops for a year or two, but I've read of ways to speed that up.

Place the hops in the oven at a low 150-175 degrees for one hour or so. Not sure how well it works, i never tried it.
May need to try the oven. Thanks guys.
