And if you cut into a CharlieCard, you get showered with radioactive juice

OK, maybe not. Still, Masukomi did cut into a busted CharlieCard and reports on her findings. She wanted to see if she could cut out all of the card except for the microchip so she could put it on her keyring; alas, there's a wire antenna wound around the outer edges of the card.

    not exactly "busted"

    By masukomi on

    The card wasn't busted when I cut into it. I just timed it so that it was at the end of a month and thus had no more value on it. It would have continued to work fine if I hadn't gone all Freddie Krueger on it.
