    Somewhere Tom Stoppard is saying “tails”….

    “Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead.” Nice one. :)

    Yeah. I really loved that movie (I’m sure it’s a show, too, but I’ve only seen the movie). It’s full of so much… much.

    Very nicely done Darrin. Great literary reference.

    It is one loaded script, if you ever get a chance to read it or see it performed live.

    If they’re dead, what are they doing with coins? Unless you can take it with you…

    It’s worth checking out. I guess I’ll be taking a trip to the Library.

    Thanks for the tip, Wildcard.

    We could play at questions.
    What good would that do?
    Practice.
    Statement! Fifteen-Love!
    Foul!
    Why?
    I handn’t started yet.
    Statement! Thirty-Love!

    There is an art to the building of suspense, though it may be done by luck alone.

    I’ll second that. It’s a great play, especially if you are familiar with Hamlet.

    I would think that — at least — a passing familiarity with Hamlet would be a requirement. How else would anyone have a hope of keeping up with the action?

    I think he’s onto something; I’ve noticed that every coin and bill that passes into my hands has the portrait of a dead person on it. If you don’t believe me, send me all your money and I’ll prove it.

    Sherlock!
    Sure, if you’ll pay me all you’ve collected when I win!
    Nice joke…. but the rule only applies to American currency..
    I know Elizabeth II is on the five pound GB note, and maybe on the one pound coin, but I’m sure there’s a cheaper way to go, too.
    Of course if no one has been foolish enough to bite on your offer, I’d be out the money, so you’d win anyway.

    Euro notes depict architectural styles, and the backs are all bridges.
    The coins have a “national side”, and some did depict reigning monarchs, though I don’t know whether they still do.
    This info is from the web, alas, and not from any vast travels….
