sold item

Animal Crossing GameCube was so heartless. Villagers would randomly paint your roof. It was so hard to make money. One time a villager sold me a mystery item without even asking and took all the money I was carrying. 12 thousand bells. It was a pitfall seed.

Retail Gothic
  • A customer pleads to be let in after closing time. They only need one item. They only ever need one Item.
  • A customer is looking for an item. You do not sell the item. You have never sold the item. You do not know what the item is.
  • An item does not scan. “It must be free” the customer jokes. You look at them, their mouth hangs open as they laugh. They have too many teeth. 
  • You ask your colleague how their day is going. They look back at you their eyes hollow and devoid of hope. You nod in understanding. No more is said.
  • A security barrier goes off. You look around but there is nobody there. There is just noise.
  • You say good morning to a customer. You hope it is still morning. You are no longer sure how time works. 
  • Colleagues  disappear as they move on to better things. You do not know where they go but sometimes you see them months later. Their eyes are bright and their smiles real. You know better than to question these things.
  • There is a man. He comes in every Wednesday. You have never seen him buy anything.
  • You see an actor from that happy show years before. They are looking at deodorant. They look sad. 
  • You go to the stockroom to find an item. You look around but there is nothing. The system says you have thirty two. The system always say you have thirty two.
  • You walk through the warehouse. All you can see in every direction is Christmas trees. It is July.
  • They ask to speak to a manager. You look around- there are no managers. you cannot remember the last time you saw a manager. What does a manager look like?

The Goiânia accident

The Goiânia accident was a radioactive contamination accident that occurred on September 13, 1987, at Goiânia, in the Brazilian state of Goiás, after an old radiotherapy source was stolen from an abandoned hospital site in the city. It was subsequently handled by many people, resulting in four deaths. About 112,000 people were examined for radioactive contamination and 249 were found to have significant levels of radioactive material in or on their bodies.

In the cleanup operation, topsoil had to be removed from several sites, and several houses were demolished. All the objects from within those houses were removed and examined. Time magazine has identified the accident as one of the world’s “worst nuclear disasters” and the International Atomic Energy Agency called it “one of the world’s worst radiological incidents”.

What follows in a incredible series of events motivated purely out of ignorance, childish wonder and greed, and the dire consequences this brought to the people involved and the city as a whole:

The accident began when two thieves, Roberto dos Santos Alves and Wagner Mota Pereira, broke into the abandoned and partially demolished Instituto Goiano de Radioterapia (IGR), where they came across a caesium-137-based teletherapy unit.

 They partially disassembled the unit, and placed the source assembly – which they thought might have some scrap value – in a wheelbarrow, taking it to Alves’s home, and once there, they began dismantling the equipment. That same evening, they both began to vomit. Nevertheless, they continued in their efforts. The following day, Pereira began to experience diarrhea and dizziness and his left hand began to swell. He soon developed a burn on this hand in the same size and shape as the aperture – he eventually had partial amputation of several fingers. 

On September 15, Pereira visited a local clinic where his symptoms were diagnosed as the result of something he had eaten, and he was told to return home and rest. Alves, however, continued with his efforts to dismantle the equipment. In the course of this effort, he eventually freed the caesium capsule from its protective rotating head. His prolonged exposure to the radioactive material led to his right forearm becoming ulcerated, requiring amputation.

On September 16, Alves succeeded in puncturing the capsule’s aperture window with a screwdriver, allowing him to see a deep blue light coming from the tiny opening he had created. He inserted the screwdriver and successfully scooped out some of the glowing substance. Thinking it was perhaps a type of gunpowder, he tried to light it, but the powder would not ignite.

On September 18, Alves sold the items to a nearby scrapyard. That night, Devair Alves Ferreira, the owner of the scrapyard, noticed the blue glow from the punctured capsule. Thinking the capsule’s contents were valuable or even supernatural, he immediately brought it into his house. Over the next three days, he invited friends and family to view the strange glowing substance.

On September 21 at the scrapyard, one of Ferreira’s friends succeeded in freeing several rice-sized grains of the glowing material from the capsule using a screwdriver; Alves Ferreira began to share some of them with various friends and family members. That same day, his wife, 37-year-old Gabriela Maria Ferreira, began to fall ill. On September 25, 1987, Devair Alves Ferreira sold the scrap metal to a second scrapyard.

The day before the sale to the second scrapyard, on September 24, Ivo, Devair’s brother, successfully scraped some additional dust out of the source and took it to his house a short distance away. There he spread some of it on the cement floor. His six-year-old daughter, Leide das Neves Ferreira, later ate a sandwich while sitting on this floor. She was also fascinated by the blue glow of the powder, applying it to her body and showing it off to her mother. Dust from the powder fell on the sandwich she was consuming; she eventually absorbed 1.0 GBq, total dose 6.0 Gy, more than a fatal dose even with treatment.

Gabriela Maria Ferreira had been the first to notice that many people around her had become severely ill at the same time.

On September 28, 1987 — 15 days after the item was found — she reclaimed the materials from the rival scrapyard and transported them to a hospital. Because the remains of the source were kept in a plastic bag, the level of contamination at the hospital was low.

In the morning of September 29, 1987 a visiting medical physicist used a scintillation counter to confirm the presence of radioactivity and persuaded the authorities to take immediate action. The city, state, and national governments were all aware of the incident by the end of the day.

News of the radiation incident was broadcast on local, national, and international media. Within days, nearly 130,000 people swarmed local hospitals concerned that they might have been exposed. Of those, 250 were indeed found to be contaminated— some with radioactive residue still on their skin— through the use of Geiger counters. Eventually, 20 people showed signs of radiation sickness and required treatment.

Ages in years are given, with dosages listed in grays (Gy).


  • Leide das Neves Ferreira, age 6 (6.0 Gy), was the daughter of Ivo Ferreira. When an international team arrived to treat her, she was discovered confined to an isolated room in the hospital because the hospital staff were afraid to go near her. She gradually experienced swelling in the upper body, hair loss, kidney and lung damage, and internal bleeding. She died on October 23, 1987, of “septicemia and generalized infection” at the Marcilio Dias Navy Hospital, in Rio de Janeiro. She was buried in a common cemetery in Goiânia, in a special fiberglass coffin lined with lead to prevent the spread of radiation. Despite these measures, news of her impending burial caused a riot of more than 2,000 people in the cemetery on the day of her burial, all fearing that her corpse would poison the surrounding land. Rioters tried to prevent her burial by using stones and bricks to block the cemetery roadway. She was buried despite this interference.
  • Gabriela Maria Ferreira, aged 37 (5.7 Gy), wife of junkyard owner Devair Ferreira, became sick about three days after coming into contact with the substance. Her condition worsened, and she developed internal bleeding, especially in the limbs, eyes, and digestive tract, and suffered from hair loss. She died October 23, 1987, about a month after exposure.
  • Israel Baptista dos Santos, aged 22 (4.5 Gy), was an employee of Devair Ferreira who worked on the radioactive source primarily to extract the lead. He developed serious respiratory and lymphatic complications, was eventually admitted to hospital, and died six days later on October 27, 1987.
  • Admilson Alves de Souza, aged 18 (5.3 Gy), was also an employee of Devair Ferreira who worked on the radioactive source. He developed lung damage, internal bleeding, and heart damage, and died October 18, 1987.

Devair Ferreira himself survived despite receiving 7 Gy of radiation. He died in 1994 of cirrhosis aggravated by depression and binge drinking.


from @nctudose on instagram - “Article: the full story of Taeyong’s scamming past
source: instiz
✔️He sold items online and sent bricks afterwards?
This was not the truth❗️
This is a screencaps of people who wanted to start a bad rumor against Taeyong.
“The important part is that he didn’t go on reflection. People sent him money and he sent them bricks. He was an iljin that was famous at school and he was known to harass people on a daily basis.”
✔️The most famous story was how he sent bricks instead of the figurines. In the first scandal, after shipping the goods out, the purchaser expressed his/her discontentment and asked Taeyong or a refund (which he repaid) so it wasn’t a scam. He never sent out any bricks.
Aside from these stories, there were also people saying how he sent empty boxes and that he took the money and disappeared. But again, there was only friction between the purchaser and Taeyong. Taeyong said that he would meet the purchaser at another time at Sindorim to give him/her the missing parts. It wasn’t a scam.The only true story was that Taeyong sent defective Gundam toys but people only paid him a small amount. The other two stories (the brick one and him running away with the money) were made up by people cherry picking facts from his Gundam scandal.

After his scamming scandal spread out, SM made him apologize and wrote an article about it. He then went on reflection.
✔️Taeyong sent a note to the victim filled with swear words
This was not sent to the victim❗️
The notes containing profanity is a separate case from the ones seen above. These are notes that one of the café member sent to Taeyong. Basically, they were both kinda insulting each other and had an online quarrel. But people who said that Taeyong sent these notes to the one that received bricks which was false.
✔️He has been blacklisted because of his scams so he made several IDs
This was not the truth❗️
Even if Taeyong had 4 different IDs (hssarang98, julyfirst1, i55052 & 1021kms), it wasn’t true that it was because of his scam and he wasn’t blacklisted. The reason he made 4 different IDs was because 2 of the IDs were related to him sending profanity notes and that one of his account’s business was halted. ”

I found this on instagram. I hope this clears something up

Please be nice to cashiers.
It’s not their fault that the price is wrong, it’s not their fault that the item isn’t scanning, it’s not their fault that the store charges 5 cents for bags, it’s not their fault they have to ask you a few questions during your transaction, it’s not their fault that the line was long, it’s not their fault that your item was sold out, it’s not their fault that the bag ripped, it’s not their fault that when trying to bag your things nicely allowing the handles to still have function that the bag wasn’t exploding full, it’s not their fault the store is busy, it’s not their fault.
Please be nice to cashiers.

for those curious about what it looks like to code events in a game, even on the most basic level:

> create an item
> give item a description
> item is worth ten gold if sold
> create chest
> stick item in chest
> have chest run basic opening animation
> chest can only be opened from the front
> test it
> cool it functions, item get
> wait, shit, the chest functions indefinitely
> player can now get infinite items and consequently infinite money
> remember to have events delete themselves once finished dammit


So for my transition I have been making and selling book related items and I have decided to make this a master post and post links to all of my items at the end of this. I have had a lot of items sold since my last load of updates so I will take the time to update each item separately.

This is for the UK only because of shipping. Everything goes towards my transition.

Payment would be sent through bank transfer or paypal (Through friends and family option please otherwise it takes 10%) 

I’ve had questions about donations, I don’t have a gofund me, I would rather feel like you get something in return. But if you wish, you can pay extra for anything you buy. I have had loads of people do this already.

Their smiles seemed endless as they chatted with words you couldn’t hear and tried to drown out your broken heart with swigs of your rum and coke.

How bittersweet it was indeed to run into your ex-boyfriend on Valentine’s Day with the girl he’d left you for. The same exact girl he’d replaced you with before actually excusing himself from your relationship. No, you weren’t still bitter at all.

You flagged down a waitress to get you another drink when a man slid into the other side of the booth. He was greeted with wide eyes and raised brows, but didn’t appear to notice. His hands folding on top of the table as eyes you could only classify as tiger-shaped stared back at you. It was silly to think, but it felt like he could see right through you. The thought making your own arms retract closer to your chest while still holding onto your glass. Just in case you needed something to launch in his direction for a quick escape.

i'd love to hear your tips on thrifting!

alrite!!! >:-)

  1. dont make the assumption that every thrift store is equal and know ur stores!! i like to think tht there are four different types of thrift stores? at the top are stores like buffalo’s exchange and plato’s closet. these are about as easy to shop in as ur usual forever 21. 2nd tier are stores like goodwill, unique, and saver’s. goodwill has a flat price for every “type” of item (ex all t-shirts are $2), while the other 2 dont. these are laid out similarly to retail stores, w longer racks generally. 3rd tier is generally stores like value village and family thrift center. these stores r generally huge and messy w a huge range of prices (a quarter to $100). last r outlet stores that sell clothing exclusively, with items sold by the pound or with an extremely low flat price. theyre very hard to shop at and u will have to Dig but the payoff is huge. generally! more difficulty = higher payoff.
  2. this is my general what 2 bring: at least a little bit of cash with u (not all thrift stores take cards), ur own bag (if u can…. this is more optional it’s just greener), hand sanitizer, a CHARGED phone, headphones + music (if youre alone OR….), a friend (good for a. moral support b. finding u shit c. finding them shit d. telling u that a piece looks like shit)
  3. wear comfy clothes tht u can slip things over and shoes tht are easy to take off (like leggings, a tank top, a jacket, + slides) bc if u have a lot of stuff tht u want to try on it’s much easier to just slip a pair of pants over ur leggings or kick off your slides
  4. find out what days ur local thrift stores have sales!! for example at mine they have 20% off everything every monday so on top of the deal ur already getting u get a…… bigger deal
  5. im gonna b honest with u!!! to get the best pieces u do sometimes need to dig (literally dig in some stores)…… i walk thru every thrift store i go to two or three times over to make sure i dont miss any piece. be prepared to spend two or three hours there! (i personally enjoy thrifting so it doesnt bother me)
  6. it’s much easier to have items in mind tht you’re looking for bc unless u really like going thru racks one by one it can get overwhelming really fast…. most of the time for me i’m looking for cheap staple pieces primarily with the Big Lucky Find at the back of my head. dont have One Specific Thing in mind bc u’ll be disappointed, but have an idea
  7. ignore sizing…. tbh it fluctuates so much btwn different brands tht it doesnt matter, esp w vintage items
  8. dont try stuff on unless u must…. i never try on tops or anything, only pants rly if i think theyre not gonna fit me. im generally pretty good at eyeballing
  9. unless ur looking at t-shirts or denim where u should flip thru everything, look thru racks by colors and textures u like bc or else ull be miserable flipping thru everything. i generally glance over a rack as im walking thru and pick what catches my eye, n then walk back thru (bc usually ull b between two racks) and look at the opposite rack and so on
  10. THE LITTLE BOYS’ SECTION is the place 2 b….. u can find so much cool stuff there!!!!!! n nobody ever goes thru it. same w mens’ (provided u can find things tht fit)!!! like one time i found next to new checkered vans that i wear every day in the mens’ shoe section. dont skip these aisles. also sneak a peek at the rack of the dressing room to see if anyone decided not to get smthng tht u might like!
  11. tl;dr of the last point? Look Everywhere. dont limit urself to one section
  12. make sure u check items for stains and small tears!! generally these dont bother me too much bc i can fix them so i get the item anyway, but its good to be sure. if u point these out at the register normally they’ll give u a discount as well bc the item is damaged
  13. i love getting vintage shoes but a lot of the glue on them tends to be dried out which makes the sole detatch but this isnt the end for the shoes @ all!! just invest 5 bucks into some good glue or, if u really want to, go to a shoe repair place to make them good as new
  14. after u get ur things…. wash it all (if its washable) just in case
  15. my last tip!!! is 2 be respectful. pick up after urself, dont make employees’ lives hell n try to put things back where they were, dont leave things in the dressing room (go put them on the rack outside)….. and dont try on clothes just bc u think theyre “funny” or theyre “ugly” n u want to laugh about how stupid u look. thrifting is the only option for some ppl n its just. a dick move and ur basically making a mockery out of it which understandably makes ppl feel like shit so!!!! yeehaw. be mindful….

this is just sum stuff i picked up over my time thrifting….. if u have tricks of ur own feel free to use those !

Every year, my chorus group has a Yankee Candle fundraiser. Anyone who sold 5+ items gets to go to a pizza party. I'm really socially awkward, so I didn't sell enough items this time around to go. After lunch the day of the party, my director approached me and asked if I wanted a leftover pizza. I carried that pie around the school for three and a half hours, but it was so worth it.

Free pizza is the best pizza

sylphdrake  asked:

My Sableye, Kuro, and I, have been partners for quite a while. We have been through quite a lot together, fought a lot of battles. Recently, we got our hands on this mega evolution thingy and a Sablenite. Kuro was very excited to try it and so was I, he held the stone, I tapped the keystone, but nothing happened. I doubt we're not close enough... What else could have gone wrong? Kuro seems really dissapointed because of it.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to the sister crime of the Custard Scheme, the Moonstone Hoax.

Made famous by an incident in the ‘50s involving, you guessed it, Moonstones, the scheme basically uses fake evolution stones, mega stones, and Pokéballs. The fakes are usually painted glass, rocks, or cheap Pokéballs sold as authentic items. Even trained experts are susceptible to a well-made faux.

If you got the items through a company, bring them back and request a refund/exchange. Most groups are understanding (but are more likely to opt for the latter than the former). If you got it from an individual, report them to the police. They might just be another tricked individual, but reports of hoax rings have been on the rise for the last five years or so.

I’m sorry you and Kuro are going through this. It does not reflect on your bond, or gullibility, or intelligence. It’s just bad luck. Please do something nice for yourselves over the weekend.

Marisol's Salem Witch Shop Review *Master Post*

EDIT: I removed Pagan Moon from this list as their physical shop closed in Salem.  Their website is still up and running, though!

Okay, dears. Since I’ve listed shops to check out and also avoid in Salem, now it’s time for me to further explain why. This is purely based on my experience. If you make it to the Witch City and still wish to venture and spend your money at shops owned by people with questionable ethics and backgrounds, that’s up to you. I will be as objective as possible but let’s just say I’ve been let down in the past by certain shops. Ten shops are featured. Yes, there are others, but these are ones I’m familiar with and know the best.

Here goes nothing…

1.) Crow Haven Corner

Considered to be the first site of a witch shop in the United States, Laurie Cabot (“Official Witch of Salem”) opened the shop at this location in the 1970. The shop has since changed hands and is owned by “Love Clairvoyant” Lorelei (um…okay…?). She and her team of psychics give tarot readings both in person and over the phone. They sell books, tarot decks, herbs, candles, tools, and crystals. I have had a rather negative experience with this shop since I worked there and quit (Search my Salem tag to find my post about this experience). Lorelei has also been *charged with assault* by a rivaling business owner stemming from an incident in 2012. Classy. She is also VERY close friends with Christian Day (don’t worry, I’ll get to him). The one redeeming characteristic of Lorelei is that she cares very deeply about animal protection and supports stricter punishment for animal abusers. She has started a fund raiser to help animals removed from abusive homes. Overall, it’s a small and cramped shop with overpriced “special” items like wands. The shop also runs a “Magickal tour of Salem” and attempts to connect history of the city to current Pagan and witchcraft practices. I don’t get it. At all.

2.) Hex/Omen

I decided to write about both of these shops in the same review because they’re owned by the same person: CHRISTIAN DAY! Christian Day went to school for Business and let me tell you…he knows what he’s doing. His set up at Hex is great. Displays are always full and well organized with wonderful descriptions. He sells a nice selection of titles, tools, and jewelry as well as hand crafted items made by the tarot readers. Tarot readings are a popular choice at this shop. Omen is more of a reading location than an actual shop but do sell items like tarot cards, candles, and other basic tools of the craft. However, Christian Day has a lovely history of harassment, verbal assault, and has expressed a level of classism, racism, and sexism that is beyond disgusting. He also loves drama and being in the spotlight. I have ZERO problem with the people who work FOR him though. They are awesome :).

3.) Enchanted: A Magickal Shop

After closing The Cat, The Crow, and The Crown several years ago, Laurie Cabot took a second chance on Pickering Wharf and collaborated with her daughter and several other people in opening this shop. Like her previous shop, tarot readings are offered. There are also “one of a kind items” sold at this shop like Witch bottles blessed by Laurie Cabot. Many of these specialty items are overpriced due to the fact the name Laurie Cabot is attached to it. They sell the typical items like books, candles, herbs, divination tools (like a used Ouija board that belonged to a REAL witch for only $40! Yeah…I’m all set. I’ll go to Toys R Us and buy it for $20 BRAND NEW), and crystals. The staff at the store is also rather cold and seem to watch EVERY move you make in the store. Calm down. I’m not going to steal a $5 turkey feather. I can find it in my yard…FOR FREE. Chill.

4.) Magika

Want to meet a Strega who MAY or MAY NOT be a descent of Giordano Bruno, the famous Italian witch killed in Italy (Christian Day, who was once Lori’s business partner, claims Giordano was gay after doing “thorough research” and could not have offspring due to being gay, thus proving Lori is a fraud. Whatever, dude… A judge told you to stop harassing Lori… You have your issues to deal with…Like having to NOW compete with your former business partner)? Check this shop out. It is right across from Enchanted. Coincidence? HAHAHAHA no. Lori and Laurie have had a rather nasty feud brewing since the 90s. Best part? Magika is in the old location of The Cat, The Crow, and The Crown! However, before you get excited, the feud has calmed down. Magika is broken into 2 sections: 1 section for tarot readings, and the other section for the shop. Candles, books, resins, tarot decks, jewelry, and hand crafted items like poppet dolls are sold here. Most of the people are friendly and helpful…however, there are people there who are rather nasty. Lori offers many classes and workshops. If you’re more local to Salem, check them out. They’re reasonably priced and fill quickly.

5.) Pyramid Book

I love love LOVE this shop. Right near Pickering Wharf, this shop has one of the best, if not THE best, selection in Salem for: books, tarot/oracle decks, crystals (many for $1), and candles. There are also singing bowls and sage sticks available. There is also a FANTASTIC jewelry selection. Readings are offered and reasonably priced. The owner and staff is incredibly nice and helpful. This shop is a must see for all things witchy.

6.) Nu Aeon

This lovely little shop is nestled at the end of Pickering Wharf. Again, there’s a great book and tarot/oracle collection. Statues of many Greek, Roman, and Egyptian deities are sold here. Music, traditional clothing, and robes are also sold here. The shop owners are pleasant and are always willing to answer questions. Classes are offered on a regular basis.

7.) Artemisia Botanicals

This is your one-stop shop for all things herbal. They have over 400, yes 400, herbs and teas. They have a friendly and knowledgeable staff who also offer many courses on the various uses of the herbs. Herbs are generally kept in nicely sealed containers to preserve freshness.

8.) New England Magick

This shop is owned by a lovely couple and have a spacious setup. They sell everything. Literally everything. Tarot. Books. Candles. Stones. Jewelry. Divination tools. Altar pieces. Artwork. Deity statues. This couple used to own a shop in Rockport, MA but closed it due to the obnoxious commute up 128 everyday (plus, I’m suspecting a lacking customer base up there). Tarot reading are offered.

9.) The Coven’s Cottage

Oh, this shop. It’s so…pretty inside. It feels so inviting and genuine compared to some of the other shops I’ve mentioned. This shop, which is fairly new compared to the others, has a great selection of crystals and books. Staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Another must-see for all things witchy and Pagan as they also sell Druid-related items. Hand-made items are also sold here. Tarot readings are also offered.

10.) Pagan Moon

This nice little shop has combined forces with its successful online shop to give visitors an authentic “witch shop” experience without all the mumbo jumbo. They have a sizeable selection of witchcraft tools as well as Druid- related tools and resources. Candles, tarot decks, and the other typical witchy objects found in a witch shop are also found here. Staff is very friendly.

Pagan Moon closed.

ams477  asked:

I was scrolling through your blog a bit (I love your art btw~) and I came across a post about how $100 isn't unreasonable for a page of art. I definitely agree with all of the points made, but it got me thinking, how should one go about deciding how much to charge for their art? I actually plan to do commissions when my art skills improve, but I don't want to charge too much or too little. I know it's a very broad topic to cover, but do you have any tips?

Honestly I’m learning every time. The way I started out was selling my art at public conventions.. the prices were a factor of: my skill, how much time/effort/supplies I put into each piece, and the prices of the vendors around me, and how their skill compared. When I sell prints they’re usually like, $12 each (for a 11X17 poster size) or two for $20, because that’s what most vendors sold theirs at as well. Also at a weekend-long event I got a sense of how well things sold - I would increase the price of items that sold well, and vice versa. As I improve and my clientele increases, I increase the price of commissions and finished products, because 1) my skill level entitles me to; and 2) I don’t have time to fulfill all the orders I get (in busy seasons). 

So - it’s a judgement call of 1) the market; 2) your skill level and how much time it takes to complete a piece; and 3) what kind of supplies you’re using - i.e an acrylic painting on canvas might cost you like, $20 just to start, so you should charge a higher price for that one, versus a watercolour on paper. 

I hope that helps a bit!

Get yourself out of this limited world of diseases to the wide world of the Hereafter, which has what the eyes have never seen. Nothing is impossible there, and love is not lost. O you who sold yourself for the sake of something that will cause you suffering and pain which will also lose its beauty, you sold the most precious item for the cheapest price, as if you neither knew the value of the goods nor the meanness of the price. Wait until you come to the Day of mutual loss and gain and you will discover the injustice of this contract.

“There is no good but Allah” is something that Alla is buying. Its price is Paradise and the Messenger is its agent, and you will be pleased to part with a small part of this worldly life to obtain it. THe part you lose is a small part of something that as a whole is not worth a mosquito’s wing.
