Default What to do with old lenses

Any suggestions for things i can do with lenses that wont fit my camera? I now have a Canon but all my old lenses are Nikon/for Nikon. I'm thinking of using the prime lenses for reverse lens macro, but what can i do with the telephoto lenses? Here are the lenses:

Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX NIKKOR
AF Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4-5.6G
Nikon Nikkor AF 35-105mm 3.5-4.5 D
Super Cosina 75-300mm F4.5-5.6 MC Macro.
Vivitar 35-105mm 1:3.2-4 MC
Nikon 35mm f/2 AI-s

the last one im not sure about:
Nikon (I think), 28mm. 1:2.8 Sunactinon, MC Auto.

There's always eBay.

Buy a Nikon -> Canon EF (EOS) converter with the AF confirm chip. (make sure you get the chip where you can adjust the front/back focus)

Then you can use those manual focus lenses on your Canon with AF confirm beep & LED!!!!!
