    Working in the army used to be a last resort job unless you were in public school and could get a job straight away as an officer even up till the first world war veterans were treated dreadfully even if they had medals , few got war pensions from war injuries as they were made very hard to claim and mental illness was rewarded with the workhouse or worse still Bedlam where the public paid a small fee too see the lunatics.. Officers got treated better but not by much.

    Heres an interesting "Mule " model lauer gold coin dated 1887 when it should be at least five years after that. Not in the best of grade but I would like to wager there are very few around

    Another one that got away

    You can also do this in the uk to some extent though most tend to stick with their final salary plans and company pensions . the best thing to do is make your own business decisions and never bother too much about what someone else considers is an "Investment" this also insures that you really have noone to blame but yourself for picking a turkey.

  13. *American journalist goes to Afghanistan in 2000. Everywhere he goes he sees men walking ten feet in front of women. He asks an Afghani guy about it, the guy responds, "this is our culture, where men are superior to women, and that is why they must walk behind us." Journalist shrugs and goes back to US. Five years later, in 2005, same journalist goes back to Afghanistan. Everywhere he goes he now sees women walking ten feet IN FRONT of men. Journalist gets really excited, goes to talk to an Afghani guy. "This is an amazing cultural shift, and step toward gender equality!" journalist says. "What prompted this change?" Afghani guy shrugs. "Landmines"

    Promised scan of the other Moore half dollar (Large size)
  15. copper123


    Are those three pence coins the same size as the shillings or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
  16. copper123


    I bought a mixed lot off ebay recently and amongst them was this little coin made by moore around 1849 presumably for export over the pond its in a small size and features a gothic head of victoria with a crown on and calafornia half dollar on the reverse not sure if this is listed in rogers butn I know there are other similar mules as I have one. I also inclue a picture of the regular large size half dollar that is much more common for reference. Hope someone with a copy of roger's book can help

  20. great idea at the time has backfired, I certainly hope not!
  21. Alcohol and stupidity
  22. Butt of the joke: Australian man suffers severe burns to his bottom and genitalia after firework party trick backfires By SARA MALM PUBLISHED: 09:51, 30 July 2012 | UPDATED: 10:04, 30 July 2012 15 View comments e-mail Top +99 Home Firecracker: The man placed the rocket between his cheeks and lit the fuse An Australian man has been hospitalised with severe burns after placing a firework between his buttocks in a party trick gone awry. The 23-year-old man was attending a party in a suburb to Darwin in the Northern Territory on Saturday, when he decided to brighten up the evening. The stunt, quite literally, backfired and the man was taken to local hospital with severe burns to his back, cheeks and genitalia. Police said alcohol was ’a possible factor’. ‘It appears a party was in full progress when a young male decided to place a firework between the cheeks of his bottom and light it,’ Senior Sergeant Garry Smith with Northern Territory Police said. ‘What must of seemed to be a great idea at the time has backfired, resulting in the male receiving quite severe and painful burns to his cheeks, back and private bits.’ When police arrived at the party in the suburb, ironically named Rapid Creek, the man was writhing in pain but was able to get to hospital without the aid of paramedics. AND HES FROM DARWIN!
  23. What about that guy who put a firework up his anus and lit it
