I got this bill today with a crossed out Federal Reserve seal. I don’t know if someone has something against the Federal Reserve Board or if they were just bored. Why the seal? Of all the things they could cross out, why the seal? Why not Lincoln or one of the serial numbers?

It’s kind of interesting for a political statement, but what are they trying to say? That they don’t believe in cash? Or maybe they don’t like the FRB. Or they might just be bored. The seal of the Department of the Treasury might have made more sense, I guess. It’s impossible to tell anymore.

This one, I’ve had for a while. I don’t remember where I got it or why I held on to it for so long. Who or what is Copia? I found Copia.org on Google. That site and a few others with Copia in the name have do with Wine. Another site, http://rhetoric.byu.edu/Pedagogy/Copia.htm, says that copia is a method of learning, although I don’t exactly know what it all means.

Speaking of bills, someone came in to Wolf the other day asking for change of a hundred. We don’t usually do this because it drains us of change greatly. However, I happened to have $100 in small bills on me, so I offered to break the bill. When he realized how many bills I had given him, he asked for the hundred back. Oh, well…

This, I found at work. It came from a single-use Fuji camera. Someone had brought it in to be developed. Normally, the canisters get thrown away. However, I thought the writing was interesting, so I kept it. I decided to share with everyone, so there it is.

And so it goes for now. I’ll probably have more later, but whether or not I’ll be motivated to post it is another story.

I'd say there's a good chance that person was a libertarian.
