Take 3m and 46 seconds to hear Carl Sagan break down why the “pale blue dot” photo that was taken in 1990 at a distance of about 6 billion kilometers (3.7 billion miles) away by Voyager 1 is so important and the implications of what that perspective offers.
"According to Title 18, Chapter 17 of the U.S. Code, which sets out crimes related to coins and currency, anyone who “alters, defaces, mutilates, impairs, diminishes, falsifies, scales, or lightens” coins can face fines or prison time. The same goes for debasing – that is, decreasing the proportion of precious metals – in gold or silver coins struck or coined at an American mint."
So, umn, obviously the answer is to do so to foreign currency… and then swap with someone from that country …
I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
@iamjustcara said: i don’t want to fish, can’t i just call someone and have fish delivered?
Though one can argue that that is also a form of fishing … the question is what type of fish are you after?
Do you want a commodity product? I mean, the fish is whatever is available and being served at the time - but it can be ordered over the phone, it can even be delivered and is available at an affordable price. But like a K-Mart, it’s just what’s on the shelf.
Perhaps you want a tailored product? Unlike the off the shelf fish of the commodity option, you get to choose the fishiness of the fish, even specifically ask for it by breed. The cost is a little more, but it may be subject to the ebbs and flows of the market supply - demand cycle. Plus, you can’t always get it immediately, so you may have to wait between ordering and delivery.
Do you want to go into a catch and release programme? In which case, you are still fishing, it’s just that you enjoy get to experience the fishiness and then send it back to the sea.
So, Absolutely. Do what works for you, by all means, it’s no one elses business but yours how you like your fish.
