Woods.In the woods.
Eva and I went for a walk in the woods yesterday. It was fun. I took all these (and many more) photos along with some videos that didn't turn out so well. I need a steady cam to balance my shots out. I woke up today with my first ever tick bleeding me dry from the back of my calf. The sucker almost made me late for work (god forbid!). In other exciting news, I found a counterfeit $100 bill at work today. It is amazing what they've done with these things! They look identical to real bills, they have blue and red security threads throughout the paper, magnetic strips in the paper that read 'USA 100', a watermark, and they even pass the counterfeit marker test that is the standard in checking for bad bills. The only thing wrong with the bills is that the serial number for the bills is incorrect for the year they claim to be issued in. So, looking at all the bills in front of me, one fake, the rest real, I got to thinking what the real difference is. I already harbor great disdain for our money system, so it didn't take a big effort to jump to the side of the counterfeiters. If we had any integrity in our economy I might be upset with people trying to cheat the system, but when the system is cheating us, I'm the first to cheer on the little guy, big as they may be to have the resources to make such pristine fake bills. If you don't yet know how our money system works you should look in to it. Money as Debt on youtube is a good, if cheesy, intro. It may be a little boring for some but the information is extremely valuable and not enough people take the time to familiarize themselves with it. Sorry to turn this into an economy rant, I'll stop now. I'll be purchasing my steady cam with my tax refund (taxes, don't get me started on those!) and should be updating with some nice stable videos soon. I also have three other vids in the works and on the verge of completion. You'll see them soon enough. For now, heres some woods photos.
Thats all for now. Have a relaxing day.
