    When I was a kid we used bottle caps. Smashed flat with a couple of holes and a string. Just because we were all about destruction at that age, we'd put a sharp edge on it or cut out little pieces to make a saw blade and have "whizzer wars" if you want to call it that. basically just a couple of us kids just spinning that sucker as fast as possible trying to cut each other's string while going head to head with the whizzers them selves.

    I found this one back in the 70's. Now I'm wondering if it was a button, whizzer or bracelet. Or it got bit by a rattlesnake. IMG_0487 (2).JPG
