i dunno, maybe

if they can derail a train, i am the luckiest person in the world....ive (isn't it illegal to deface money?) flattened thousands of coins on the tracks.. once i sent a few to The Presidents of the United States band for guitar picks (i have no idea if they would create a good sound thought? hmmm)

did you ever see that episode of Pete and Pete on Nickelodian, it was pretty sweet?

Re: i dunno, maybe

Yeah, defacing money is illegal but uh, oh well. That's a pretty cool idea about the guitar picks, except for you're right about the sound quality haha that'd be interesting. I didn't see the episode of Pete+Pete you're talking about, but that show was pretty random and good.. the plate in their Mom's head, I always remember that picture. The red hair reminds me of Salute Your Shorts, that was a good show too.

Totally true, but who cares? Um, I shouldn't put it that way, I know. When I was a little girl I flattened a BUNCH of pennies that way, and I still have most of them. I think the reality is that you CAN derail a train that way, but it doesn't happen very often.

Did I get it right? What's my prize? I want a cookie.

Sounds good to me

I was asking if a coin really can derail a train because last week I was walking around Ft. Lauderdale at night and a train was coming and I put down quarters (thought it would be cooler than pennies) and it flattened two of them and the third one went missing *dun dun DUN* It's cool on one of them the only thing left is the word "America". But yes, I was extremely excited about the quarters, and yes, you deserve a cookie.. that someone else should bake for you.

i flattened alot of pennies on the train tracks when i was a kid too. i'm sure its not good for the track but if something so simple can derail a train then the engineers need to rework the train track design. i thought the train would more durable. i doubt that coins can really derail a train, but i may be wrong.

I only did the penny thing once, but it was cool. I always used pennies as sling shot objects. =p They make great flying objects(but break a lot of shit). Oh well, I doubt the pennies will derail a train, or we'd have terrorists making change at every bank in America. You think they'd make a different sound on the guitar? Hmm.. I'd have to think about it.
