Apparently, nobody in South Yarmouth, Mass has heard of a magnet.

Ok, so you want an "environmentally clean" bonfire for a civic event. You have some shipping pallets you want to get rid of, and of course, since they're not painted or have preservatives, they're clean wood to burn, right? Well, somebody forgot about the nails. That's bad enough- let's pollute a beach people go walking barefoot on with a large circle of nails. But worse, I think they've been hiring ex-Oregon Department of Transportation employees for the cleanup. Not quite as bad as trying to remove a dead whale with dynamite, but almost. They tried to pick them up with a garden rake. Which of course, just spread the nails all over the beach.

Ever hear of an electromagnet? Wonderful invention for separating ferrous metal from sand......
