Ever wonder what happens to a virtually useless 20 cent Swiss franc coin when it gets run over by a really heavy light rail train? Well I do. And I figured, rightly I’m sure, that other inquiring minds would want to know. So I conducted the scientific experiment depicted in the following video.
(I recognize that the quality of the video leaves a little to be desired, but I had to shoot it in a hurry and on the first take because I’m pretty sure the Swiss police do not have the same level of scientific curiosity when it comes to experiments involving laying foreign objects — or in this case, domestic ones, I suppose — on light rail tracks.)
WARNING: DON”T TRY THIS AT HOME.
As you could clearly see from the video, it was difficult to clearly see very much at all. Therefore I am presenting the following before and after photos in the name of science so that it might benefit future generations to come.
