Picking up Nickels

Picking up three million nickels

Odd story out of Brevard County, FL this morning of a fatal accident where a United States Treasury truck transporting $185,000 worth of nickels rear-ended another semi on Route I-95 (link).

Workers are blowing the nickels off the roadway in an effort to reopen the roadway. Brown said anyone who might stop to collect nickels -- even one nickel -- would face federal charges since the nickels belong to the Treasury Department

Yikes, I guess I won't be picking up any of those nickels after all...
