So a couple of weeks ago I found a motor on the ground outside. It was just a small one like I collected at home. I took it home and set it down. Last P-day, I was cleaning stuff up and I saw it and there happened to be some dead batteries from my camera near there too. One of the batteries wasn't quite dead. Now I don't have any wires her but there was a gum wrapper from some of the pieces of gum apple crisp gum that you gave me. So I ripped the gum wrapper in a couple pieces and the motor actually runs. You can run a motor with a metal gum wrapper! It was really cool.
