    A third, the way people create distractions and diversions
    for the sole purpose of deflecting attention from themselves.
    The 'Coin Flip Side' aspect is the concealed and, therefore,
    unspoked personal agenda being served.

    Good one, Bobby. You'll never be accused of deflecting attention from yourself.

    Bobby, I have to wonder: since the chronic thumbs-down vs GB are from the sickly-motivated cowards vs the vigilant and inwardly informed, it seems you should pay less attention them. But you don't. Why is that?

    Perhaps those thumbs should give you the pride of battle-field badges.

    Appreciate your honest questions, apathis.

    Perenial Copcats and Sad Clowns often go unoticed.
    One has little inside, except for hackneyed catchwords
    and clever phrases. The other category of posers
    manufactures face paint and giggly glee from the raw
    emotional clusters seething deep within. Neither care
    much for astringent fact when fiction is close at hand.
    Both play the fool as daily cover in their narrow worlds.

    Not commemorative or gold or silver or numismatic or rare collector coins, just everday ordinary coins... we all know each circulating coin of the realm has two sides. Sometime we forget there's another side that's hidden from public view.[/b]
    Hi Gramps,

    didn't know you were in numismatics. So how about coins showing the same on the avers and the revers? And since we are at it you probably know that the first coins from Crösus didn't have different sides?
