    Argentknight reacted to Pete in Coin Specifications & Errors When Blindly Copying   
    I recently purchased some 2oz silver Kookaburras from the forum and one coin did not have a capsule ( the seller made this clear ).
    I have now started looking for a suitable clear capsule and my first instinct was to check the quoted diameters on various websites.
    Nearly all websites show the 2 oz Kook diameter as 53.3mm whilst Apmex stated 50.3mm.
    I therefore measured the true diameter of my coin ( and I have several from different years ) at 50.0mm
    All my others rattled a tiny bit inside their original Perth Mint capsules and the cap inner diameter was measured at 50.3mm
    I have therefore ordered some 50mm diameter capsules on eBay and hope ( expect ! ) the coin to fit.
    My immediate conclusion is that most dealers never bother to check coin specifications before publishing on their websites and go to ( most probably ) "Wikipedia" for supposedly accurate data.
    Exactly - Wiki stated the diameter as 53.3mm - so everyone almost appears to be copying and pasting data from Wiki - blindly.
    I then, for the first time, discovered that I could simply edit Wikipedia so I have changed the diameter specification today to read 50.3mm
    Two things came to mind - how easy it was to change something as important as a coin specification and how can you trust anything when trying to ensure you are not buying fakes when the data itself can be manipulated ? Just a thought !!
    PS - I have an old copy of the World Coins catalogue by Krause ( the standard catalogue ) and for a 2 oz Kook the diameter is specified at 50 mm

    One of the managers at the company I work for took a dump and blocked the pan as it was so big. Not knowing how to break it up discreetly, he decided to get some cardboard and lift it out. He then threw it out of the window hoping it would eventually break down in the rain. It sat on the deck for months after in full view of the other offices!

    I bet lots of people have a monster turd story or two, women just dont understand us men.
    Decades ago a mate (will call him Dave to protect his identity) was sharing a flat with a lesbian couple, he was a bit of a nob and was doing stuff to wind them up all the time, then one Friday I saw him in the pub, and he had a huge smirk on his face, I asked him what was up and he said that he had left a present for the moaning pair of bitches he lodged with,
    I said to him they will chuck you out one day, the following Friday I saw him and he asked if I knew anyone he could lodge with, I asked why and he just told me they had, had a disagreement,
    I saw one of the girls and asked her why he had been kicked out and she said , one of them came home from the nightclub a little tipsy and to get some more money, while at home she went to the lav didnt notice Daves log lurking in there and when she flushed, Daves monster turd rose with the water and did a 'backflip' over the toilet seat and all down the dress of the lass, because she was drunk she didnt notice, she went out to meet her other half and she pointed out in horror what was on her dress, they went back home for her to get changed and spotted Daves handy work laid on the toilet floor and put two and two together and packed his stuff and left it on the doorstep for when he got home,  true story that.

    There is a story from when i was a child. We all lived in a big house. We had a chap who worked in the family business and lodged with us. The lodger allegedly left a deposit. My cousin (female) discovered it and started screaming. My Nana had to beat it with a stick and with difficulty got rid of it. The stuff of legend.
    More tales from the North and new depths for the silver forum.

    WE HAVE A NEW MEMBER, AN ELDERLY MAN.
    HE'S BEEN PRIVATELY MESSAGING PEOPLE, SENDING THEM NAKED PICTURES OF HIMSELF IN NASTY POSES ALONG WITH CLOSE UPS OF HIS UNMENTIONABLES.
    HE IS OFFERING AN IPHONE XS IN EXCHANGE FOR SEXUAL FAVOURS.
    I AM ESPECIALLY BOTHERED BECAUSE IT TURNED OUT TO BE AN IPHONE 6 AND OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING'S WRONG WITH IT.
    IT'S SUPER SLOW AND THE CAPS LOCK IS STUCK ON.

    Argentknight reacted to BackyardBullion in Hand Poured 999 Gold is a go!   
    So, this week I have been subtly sharing some black and white photos of a very pretty bar. That is because the colour is not your usual white metal!
    Courtesy of @Lr103 I have been experimenting with pouring gold!
    A video of the whole experience will be out tomorrow and I will share it with you all here.
    Here is the very first attempt....

    Not so good, so I chopped it up and tried again!
    And here is the bar fresh from the furnace....

    My leaf stamp compliments the ripples perfectly!
    2.24 oz of 999+ gold!
    We have sent it up to the Edinburgh Assay Office for hallmarking (likely done by laser!)

    And here is a companion bar made to be the same size....but because it is silver it is about half the weight!

    Thank you to @Lr103 for putting your faith (and money!) in my skills, I am truly humbled!
    I also have the gold pouring bug....so watch this space.....
    If only gold wasn't so damn expensive!

    Argentknight reacted to Pete in There is NO silver shortage - Stop the myth - WHY are you still stacking silver ???   
    Haven't watched the video so maybe my comment will sound ridiculous.
    I'm not sure the problem lies with the mineral abundance but more the cost of getting it mined and processed.
    By comparison we are sitting on swathes of the finest coal underground but it will never be mined.
