    elementary school razor blades nails and staples

    Yesterday I got an urgent call from my small town elementary school. It seems that they found razor blades long staples and nails in an artificial turf playground at the school. So I took my Safari and propointer to the school at noon and started looking. I found about 15 long nails and a long staple in the 2 hours of detecting. I had the help of a talkative maintenance man and many curious kids watching my every move with lots of questions. It seems that the company that recently installed artificial turf had had left this stuff scattered in a 100 foot by 50 foot area of the playground. Very careless of them! I would of been sick if one of those grade school kids would of gotten injured by that companys carelessness. Plus it was Fun!!!

    Sounds like they need to buy one of those big magnets on a stick.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.
