the zinc/cadmium oxide in the coins produce an electromagnetic field that can tap into cell phone towers, but only in Nebraska and Pakistan. However this electromagnetic field will cause rats to eat your left knee because of the frequency of the electromagnectic field (23432.783 Hertz). This will also lead to birth defects such as field hockey sticks for arms, and no genitalia and/or liver.

nice! great idea to sharpen both ends of pencil!

author
shooby (author)gmjhowe2008-03-27

Why not one of those really small pencils- doesn't need to be sharpened.

gmjhowe (author)shooby2008-03-27

You mean mechnical pencil?

author
shooby (author)gmjhowe2008-03-27

Oops, my mistake, i meant to write really small pens, sorry. You normally buy them for keeping in a small notepad, or some use similar to this. Not that pencils are bad, this pen would just be way smaller.

While talking on a pay phone?

author
gmjhowe (author)shooby2008-03-28

yes, payphones are comenly exposed to outside weather, there not always in booths!

author
shooby (author)gmjhowe2008-03-28

hahaha I was referring more to the upside down part, but fair enough, pencil it is.

author
gmjhowe (author)shooby2008-03-28

The upside down bit was more for humour. But then, there is those few occasions when gravity get reversed.

I find it so annoying when gravity gets reversed while on the phone!

author
gmjhowe (author)TheShawMaestro2008-07-03

i kno, i kno, your just like there trying not to fly off into space, and those metal cables on the handsets never hold.

author
TheShawMaestro (author)gmjhowe2008-07-07

They really need to make payphones anti-gravity proof!

author
awang8 (author)TheShawMaestro2008-12-22

I know, it's so annoying with the change falls into the sky when it's change time and gravity reverses!
