This deserves all reblogs.
I needed a metro card to get to work, but my credit card was not working in any of the machines. I went into a convenience store and asked if I could purchase anyone’s food/drink in exchange for cash, and one man took me up on it. So I got $2.25.
But when I went down to the machine, I found that I was still a quarter short. I went into a Starbucks and asked 15 people if I could buy their coffee. Nobody answered. At this point I was getting frantic. I desperately approached a coffee cart vendor, and explained my situation.
The man smiles and says, “Here, take a dollar.”
“Thanks,” I told him, “but I only need a quarter. My credit card works everywhere except the subway. But thank you.”
“Wait,” he told me. “Since you have no money, take $10. You can pay me back tomorrow, or not at all. It’s not a big deal.”
This guy gave me $11 even though I’ve never met the guy, seen him before, or bought even a coffee from the cart… and after I’ve been searching for 25 cents for almost an hour.
You can find him right outside the Bowling Green 4/5 stop. Near the Starbucks. He works until Noon.
Western Jin Wu Zhu—The coin below is a great example of the sort of chaos that reigns in attribution of Wu Zhu varities beginning with Eastern Han and really going wild after Han’s fall. Originally these were attributed to the Liao Dynasty of the 12th and 13th centuries AD, a non-Chinese dynasty comprised of the Turkic Khitan people. Later archaeology placed them much earlier, and they were attributed to Shu-Han, under the casting authority of either Liu Bei or Liu Shan. However, the Great Dictionary of Chinese Numismatics further refines these as indeed having been cast in the Shu region of the country (far west in ancient China, Chengdu was the largest city) but not under Shu-Han but rather under Western Jin. Jin overthrew Wei in AD 265—two years after Shu-Han was defeated (*sniff*) by Wei. Jin wouldn’t defeat Wu until AD 280 and wouldn’t flee East until AD 316 so these could date anywhere from AD 265–316 You’ll notice there is dirt only on the Zhu. This is because I have learned the hard way that the more intricate characters often are best served by surrounding dirt for contrast. So I cleaned the soil from everywhere but the Zhu character.
(That’s the last I’m going to do on coins for a while)

I am completely torn when it comes to Maybelline Baby Lips. For the longest time I just couldn’t justify spending four dollars (yes I know that’s kind of sad) on a lip…
