Just connect it up to your car with your car battery disconnected, then disconnect the distributor coil in put and crank the engine over until it dies. Do it in bursts, pausing in between, so the starter does not overheat.

The main function of the battery is to start the engine.
This will draw the most power and hence will kill the battery as quickly as possible.
You could connect it to a light to draw out the agony.

dump out the water you put in the battery, mix 1/2 cup of baking soda ( not baking powder) with a gallon of water & refill the battery. It will stop all chemical reaction within the battery. Guaranteed useless at that point. Make sure you recycle the battttery. (scrap yard in my neighborhood pays you a buck a battery)

Finding this post a couple days later I'm sure it'* been taken care of..

Let'* not forget..batteries contain acid. That acid is bad for everything, you, your yard, the environment etc.

I hope you didn't get hurt by the acid while the tirade of battery stabbing occurred.
