Have fun learning and teaching languages!
It's incredible and surprising! This accident is obviously out of the ordinary.I must confess that I hadn't seen the Canadian coins until now. There're so many things to learn that the famous sentence of Sócrates "As for me all I know is that I know nothing" comes to my mind constantly. I've learnt that the canadian 1 dollar coin (aka the LOONIE), bears image of a loon, a bird very common in Canadá on the reverse and an effigy of Elizabeth II on the obserse. Regarding the TOONIE (the canadian 2 dollar coin), it's a combination of two words: the number "two" with the name of the loonie, and it's represented by a polar bear on the reverse and the portrait of the Queen on the observe.In the following video you can see a crane with a large magnet to collect the coins. It's something unusual! isn't it?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mv5wyXoX4Q0
I completely agree with the Socrates quote you posted. There is sooooooo much to learn and sooooo little time. I wish I were a billionaire, to help the needy and to have time to learn :)Thank you, have a great week, see you on Monday.
