Train Track Nickel and Dime Smashing.

Want some wholesome/dangerous fun.  Here's the rules.

  1. Find a rural train track. If you are in the city/suburbs and the track has a third rail....back off.    Electrocution is imminent.
  2. Look both ways to make sure a Union Pacific isn't going to hit you in the face.
  3. Place your change on the rail and make note of where you put the stuff.  The change will move a bit when the train smashes them.
  4. Return in the morning.  You'll have a bunch of wonderful trinkets.  Also, your money is now useless.  
Yup.  I've been a busy girl.  Today I'm thinking about smashing a quarter, a Susan b. Anthony, a gold dollar with stupid Andrew Jackson on it, and maybe a fork.  Happy smashing, folks. 


  1. Hey, you could smash silverware and use it to make a cool windchime. Add some of the coins too. That would be awesome.

  2. maybe I could throw some bones in there too. make it look like a prop from Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But your idea is much more plesant to be around ;)

  3. AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH! The bones would make a creepy windchime! But it might make a cool sound if they were all bones clattering together. HHHHHHHHMMMMMM... maybe if you painted the bones bright fun colors or painted some designs on them they would look less like bones but cool art pieces and make a a cool noise when the wind blew them. Bones in general creep me out. I don't know why. It might be like you and the fish.

  4. bones are creepy. they're the insides of something that used to be alive.

    Eww, that sounded creepy. I'm not creepy, I swear.

  5. Back in the late 80s throwing stars were a big deal if you were a kid so we used to lay a bunch of sinker nails on the track, diagonal, so they wouldn't roll off, and let the train flatten them into little blades, sharpen them with a file and drill a hole where the head of the nail was and bult 3 or 5 or 4 of them together and you had a homemade throwing star that didn't work for shit but was still pretty cool if you were like 9 years old or something.

  6. holy moly! Hutson, if you were in juvie you would have been able to make a weapon out of anything and rule the place.

    Good idea, though. I need to think of something other than change to smash.
