Dec 21st, 2016: Coin Stackers

This is the first day of winter in the northern climes, the shortest day of the year. The weather's not conducive with going out
and stacking rocks, although the ice might help hold them up.
So we switch to indoor pursuits like coin stacking... which I can't do either.



I guess you'd have to develop your own technique depending on the size and weight of your coinage. In these Jap stacks some
coins have a square hole in the center. That would help in some cases. I don't know much about Brit or Aussie coins, but I don't
remember any with holes?
Watch out for slugs.

I just told beest and pologirl that tomorrow was the first day of winter. They snorted in unison as we have had two big snowstorms already and it was -17c yesterday



Clodfobble  Tuesday Dec 20 11:27 PM

I've never understood why the solstice isn't considered the exact middle of winter rather than the start.



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Dec 20 11:31 PM

Probably because now till March 20th. is the coldest, snowiest, nastiest weather.



Clodfobble  Tuesday Dec 20 11:34 PM

The first three weeks of March are worse for you guys than the first three weeks of December? I'm genuinely asking; the weather down here is all fucked up and I wore a tank top today. We'll be swimming again by March 20th.



monster  Tuesday Dec 20 11:41 PM

yes, they generally are
usually nothing notable snowwise has happened by this point



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Dec 20 11:51 PM

March comes in like a Lion and goes out like a lamb. We can get snow in April which is bad because the leaves have started to come out. In New England we could have frost up to memorial day, but not so much here.

Monday morning a guy in Austin complained he had no water because the pipes were frozen, and up in Dennison on the Oklahoma line, Sunday morning it was 14 degrees F, with a wind chill of -5, with the strong winds off/around the lake.

Re: The coin stacking... Requires way too much patience for me. House of cards, house of coins. Same thing.

Re: The winter weather, what is all that winter stuff you are talking about?

72 today.......Huggy Bear clouds.......

Like dis!



glatt  Wednesday Dec 21 08:06 AM

Lovely!

As for the coin stacking, those pics are as close as I dare get with my shaky hands! (permanent tremor in both due to undiagnosed thyroid problem as a teenager)

As for the weather, it's a balmy 29F at the moment. The 3 inches of overnight snow forecast yesterday did not arrive; we have some older snow down but about half melted off when it got unusually warm yesterday. Now the roads LOOK clear but are actually sheets of black ice in every direction. Makes me glad I'm not the one who has to go somewhere today!

Yep! Saturday afternoon it was 76, overnight it dropped to 25. Fortunately no precipitation or the city would have shut down. Stayed in the 40s for Sunday and Monday, back up to 60 yesterday afternoon, supposed to be in the 70s again by Saturday. It's not that it's hot all the time, it's that it's wildly unpredictable.


footfootfoot  Wednesday Dec 21 10:11 AM

I can go outside today with a pail of hot water and a bag of coins and using the water as glue I could stack the shit out of those coins. That's how cold it is.

(Thread drift merge FTW!)

Actually those coin stacks represent your cash reserve after Christmas.



Clodfobble  Wednesday Dec 21 06:04 PM

Only foreign coins after Trump takes over? Sounds about right...



monster  Wednesday Dec 21 08:58 PM

Trump could build his wall out of coins. All the ones he should have paid in taxes, maybe



xoxoxoBruce  Wednesday Dec 21 09:05 PM

That would cause unemployment, think of all the lawyers, accountants, and front men that would be out of work.



monster  Wednesday Dec 21 09:21 PM

they could be employed as part of a chain gang -passing the coins from NY down to rapistland.
