    This remains a phenomenally bad idea. Instructables should have nothing to do with promoting it, and neither should anyone else. Aside from the glib, "impress . . . your city officials," which actually means something(i.e., demands allocations of resources, your tax dollars, to clean up someone else's mess, i.e., yours), it has "pollution" written all over. Tossing lithium batteries into the environment wildly-nilly, along with the rest of the ingredients of a "Throwy,"(it sounds so fun!) is the height of irresponsibility, the companies selling parts specifically for such should be sanctioned as well.

Lithium-ion batteries are classified as "hazardous waste," whether in your phone, portable drill, Tesla, or "Throwy," and should be disposed of properly, without exception. I haven't even touched on the pollution associated with rare-earth magnets. Educate yourself, people! And grow up! Please! We can't go on like this forever.
