A Smashing Way to Make Glass Props!
If you need to break it, its easy to make it!
All the best movies have a car chase (think Bullitt and the French Connection) but they also should have a bullet smashing a window - or anything smashing a window really.

What Accepting Bitcoin Can Do For Your Business
Bitcoin has been around since 2009, but it's only recently that businesses have started to take notice of this interesting currency option.

Over time, it requires more CPU power to mine the coins, controlling currency inflation.
