Cracks in the fabric of reality, film at 11
In a clear violation of basic laws of physics, I have observed a medicine container polymorph into a collectible coin.  (Or perhaps it was the disappearance of one and the unconnected spontaneous generation of the other, but Occam's Razor suggests that if two impossible things occur in the same place at apparently the same time, they're probably connected.)

As I drove home, I used the inhaler in my briefcase.  When I got home, the inhaler had disappeared from this plane of existence; it was not only not in the briefcase where I'd put it back, it was nowhere to be found in my car.  But in the course of ransacking the car, I found a 1946 (I think it was, I already dropped it into the "weird coins" jar) Mercury dime, a coin that should never have had any reason to be carried into my car in the first place, much less to be under the passenger seat.

If I can repeat this and learn to cause more useful impossible exchanges of small objects, I might be onto something.

do you need more mercury dimes

(Link)
I dont remember loosing a mercury dime when i was in your car.

but if you want more, i have 1.5 pounds of them, all kind of dates.
i had them checked out, one or two is worth 5.00 at the most. They were my dads pocket change collection, all worn and defaced.

yet they still are silver.

i want to make a art peice out of them.

Pierced and strung in the manner of Middle Eastern dowry jewelry? Or something more in the line of a button mosaic?

The only problem w/ coin belts that are made form real coins is that they sometimes turn out to be too heavy for comfort. But - if all the coins are dimes then this may not be a problem. :)
