I went to pick up some parts bikes from Anthony yesterday, and he had something interesting to show me. He was riding by a scrapyard when he hit this nail. I’ve never seen a more cartoonish flat tire. You could ride over ten thousand nails ten thousand times and never get one to do this.
I can only conclude that this nail contains dark magic, and that it is on a path of its own choosing. Anthony’s bike tire was a stepping stone. Much like Bilbo / Frodo’s ring, this nail must be thrown into the fires of Mordor in order to be destroyed.
