I get my second Pfizer jab on Friday, I may take off work Saturday regardless of how I feel after. Both of my parents had no reactions whatsoever to either dose and neither of them are in especially great health, so I suspect I will feel like hammered poo poo for a couple of days.

I'm getting my second Pfizer shot Friday afternoon and I have a shitload of manual labor planned for the weekend, so we'll see how that goes...

My second Pfizer shot was yesterday and I have a sore arm and mild fatigue. I could probably work today but I already scheduled to take off, so I'm going to go with that in case side effects get worse later.

Oregon has been consistently in the bottom five states for covid deaths, which is thought to in part be due to how early we "shut down."

I'm just being cranky because everyone else is getting to rejoin planet earth with their vaccination. Ours are supposed to open up by April 26th. I'm quite paranoid another nasty spike is going to hit before my father or I get vaccinated.

Truthfully, I'd rather people with jobs and families get it before me. I can handle being shut away an extra month.

(Still gonna bitch at Oregon, though)

Everyone who posts in TFR and does not have a P17 needs to stop what they're doing and buy one now. They're ridiculously good for the price.

I'm 6.5 hours past my second Pfizer shot and feel alright. Mildly sore arm and I needed a power nap about 2 hours post shot, but now it's alright.

If course I'm still taking tomorrow as a sick day since it's already booked due to post vaccine illness.

My 2nd shot wasn't so bad. First shot was way worse.

I'm not sure anyone actually knew how to count that loving money. I'm sure everyone was just on some sort of nation wide system of assuming change was correct.

Re: Currency denomination chat.

When I was a photo technician (2007) a woman who was clearly Australian came in with a piece of photographic negative and she wanted a print. It was a WWII era photo of her (late) husband that I handled more carefully than anything else I touched in that job.

After her print was done, I told her that her total was 24 cents. She opened an old lady wallet that probably had two pounds of coins in it and handed me a twenty. I stopped for a moment and said, "Um...ma'am, it's only 24 cents."
She just looked at me and said, "I don't understand your money," and opened her wallet to me. I handed her back the twenty, took a quarter, and gave her back a penny.

I hope people weren't taking advantage of her at other stores. To get as much change back as she had, she probably had made at least two dozen cash transactions.

I ain't gonna lie - I did that more than once before the Euro. I'd been going abroad since seven years old, so I had enough sense to not just hand them a stack of paper. But I'd know enough French to apologize and let them take what coinage they needed.

Being able to speak even a three year old's vocabulary is a lifesaver when it comes to locals not hating you.

WARNING - This does not apply in Paris, possibly the only place that rivals New York for dickheaded locals.

So it goes when the smallest paper bill is 5 EUR. Coins now become actual real money you try hard not to lose.

Swiss currency is even more fun, their smallest bill is 10 CHF, you could end up with $20 in your couch cushions pretty quickly.

This. This feels good. This is what happens when you sort through pounds of jumbled coins form 40+ countries. With five generations of British people contributing to it. This doesn't account for my personal British stuff, which will be folded in later.



That's all my United Kingdom Era coinage (1801 - 1967) combined with modern British coinage. Top two rows - Old poo poo. Bottom two rows - newer poo poo.

Nothing there is in special condition or worth more than five bucks, so it doesn't need to be individually sleeved.

But you want to know the textbook definition of asinine? Look up British Decimal Coinage. The pound was originally 240 pence. Meaning you had farthings, half pennies, pennies, three pence, six pence, shilling, florin, half crown, and crown. None of those have any real rational system behind how many of one make up the other. I'm not even getting into guineas and sovereigns. Sorting this poo poo drat near broke my brain.

Arguably the most efficient option would be binary coinage. Your hands make a 10-bit counter!
