It's totally faulty logic. (I'm sure there's a name for this particular logical fallacy but I don't know it.) If I accidentally drop a 1959 nickel on a vacation to Lake Louise, it does not mean I was there in 1959. Or, if I accidentally drop a Canadian penny in Mexico, it doesn't mean that Canadians discovered Mexico. I've watched this series since the beginning but it has grown stale. I've still been recording this season because I hate to give up on a show, but I watched one of the latest episodes and it just makes me mad. And now I'm off to sew up that hole in my pocket so I stop losing money. Excellent point. Yeah, money circulates and stays around. Finding a coin of a certain date is not proof of THAT date. It means someone dropped a coin at some point. But I mostly quoted for your last line. Off to do the same. 2 Link to comment
