Good evening folks! I hope everyone has had a great start to their week after the holiday weekend :-) Listed here is another batch of pens as I continue to curate my collection. All these pens are great writers and would serve you well. It gets harder and harder to choose which pens to let go of. As a virtue of that, there is no “bad” choice here!
Verification and photos: https://imgur.com/a/HVF7yzN Please note: there may be ink on the nibs(and on my fingers lol) in the photos as a result of my testing them. Rest assured, all nibs are in great shape
-All sub rules in effect. PayPal G&S is the only acceptable form of payment! -Please post on this listing first, then PM with your PayPal email and I’ll get an invoice sent out ASAP. Users that indicate firm intention through messaging to purchase a pen will get priority for a given pen, irrespective of “pm” order in the thread.
-The cost of shipping is higher than ever. All packages ship with full value insurance-absolutely no exceptions. Shipping will be a flat rate of $10. I’m happy to combine shipping if you purchase multiple items.
On to the pens!
[D for vintage] Platinum Pocket Pen w/18k factory Music nib! $200+shipping
This pen is quite unusual in that you definitely don’t see them everyday. While I’m not an expert on Platinum as a brand, I do know these pens are few and far between. In fact, this is the only one I’ve ever seen available and I paid a pretty penny for it. I’m sure there are others out there, but they rarely come up for sale. This is a must have for any Platinum collectors out there! The 18k music nib writes absolutely beautifully and has a bit of spring. The pen is also in good shape and is ready to write sweet, sweet music! If you’re a Platinum collector(or a traveling composer), this is a must have pen for you ;-)
[D for vintage] vintage Pelikan 400 w/14k EF flexible nib $235+shipping
Vintage Pelikans do not get the hype they deserve within the community imho. They are great pens in every way! Beautiful, sleek, very easy to clean, and with great nibs, you’d be hard pressed to find a pen, either modern or vintage, with more upside/features than these models! This pen, from the early to mid 1950’s, is in good condition with very light microscratching commensurate with careful usage throughout the years. Somewhere along its life, the original cap was replaced with an example from a 400nn and is in really good shape itself with only some light brassing. The nib is absolutely wonderful and is the real draw here. It has plenty of flex available if you’d like to use the pen for that. It writes absolutely beautifully, the ebonite feed offering a steady supply of ink for wet, luscious lines. I have a bunch of these pens in all nib sizes for a good reason. If you don’t have one of these, you should seriously consider picking this pen up. I guarantee you’ll be happy you tried it out. I’ll also guarantee that you won’t stop at only one! They’re truly that good….
[D for vintage] Parker Vacumatic in Gray Pearl Shadow-Wave w/14k Med. flexible nib $125+shipping
Up next is a fantastic user grade Vac that would be perfect for someone who’s either just getting into vintage, or for the person who wants a vintage pen to carry with them daily without having to worry about losing an Uber expensive pen. The pen presents very well but is user grade with brassing to the trim and a depression or 2 on the body. The nib is awesome and has rare flexibility to add plenty of character to your writing. It is not easy to find a Vac with flexibility at this price point!
[D for vintage] Wahl full length slender pen in Jade celluloid w/14k Fine flexible nib $125+shipping
Those that know me here know that I collect Wahl as a primary focus. This pen was an early acquisition and is perfect for getting into vintage. The Jade celluloid has discoloring, as do most pens made of this material. The color on this pen is a lot better than some. The nib is awesome! A fine with flexibility to take your writing to the next level. I’ve traded up to a similar pen that has better coloring, so this pen must go! Discover why I love Wahl so much! I guarantee you would not be disappointed with this pen if you purchased it! Last minute edit: I just realized I didn’t take a picture of the nib on this pen, grrrr. The nib is in excellent condition. The light is now gone for the day however, so I’ll provide pics to whoever is interested.
[D for vintage] Ingersoll all metal pen w/14k Med. Stub Italic nib $110+shipping
This pen is great for somebody who wants to experience vintage stub flex without breaking the budget. While still a stunning pen, the exterior does have some wear, however it’s a very old pen! This is a twist filler, requiring that one simply remove the blind cap, insert the nib in ink, and twist the metal piece to “deflate” the sac. After releasing the metal piece, allowing the sac to fill with ink, boom, the pen is filled! The nib is what makes this pen special! A #2 Ingersoll, it is a truly flexible, italic like MF nib. There is some feedback when writing, however this pen is a whole lot of fun to write with! If you’ve never experienced a flexible stub, here’s your chance to do so in a relatively inexpensive manner!
[D for vintage] Waterman CF all metal pen-Crocodile pattern w/18k Broad nib $195+shipping
This beautiful all metal CF is a prodigious writer! It’s also the sought after crocodile pattern. Wet, juicy goodness! It’s in spectacular, collector grade condition! Aside from the normal marks all CF’s get on the overlay of their sections, the pen is in perfect shape. You’d be hard pressed to convince anyone this is a vintage pen! Aside from the solid gold models, this is the penultimate CF. I have one last CF I’ll be keeping. Believe me, it was a very hard choice as to which one to let go of. hard to find and expensive CF proprietary converter included in this sale
[D for vintage] Parker Vacumatic Deb. in burgundy w/14k EF-F nib $125+shipping
This may be one of the most beautiful Vacumatics I’ve ever owned! It’s certainly feature packed and is one of the most fancy pants version(aside from the gold Imperial model) you could get of this model/size pen back in the day. Double-striped jewels, duo-tone nib….this pen has it all! Nib writes a perfect, beautifully juicy MF line! There’s some brassing on the trim, and a name engraved on the barrel, but this pen is absolutely stunning in person! Take a look at the video in the gallery.
Modern pens below!
[B+] Lamy Accent Briarwood w/14k Med nib $115+shipping
Lamy’s Accent is a great way to enjoy Lamy’s gold nibs. This pen is customizable in that you can purchase additional barrel inserts if you wanted. The Medium nib writes beautifully and is exactly what one would expect from a Lamy nib. This pen is in really good shape and needs a new owner who will actually use it!
[B+] Lamy Studio Palladium w/14k Fine nib $125+shipping
There’s probably not a whole lot I can say about the Lamy Studio that hasn’t already been said and they are indeed, great pens! This one is in great condition and also writes beautifully. I’ve always liked the way Lamy gold nibs feel against paper. I also really like the ergonomics of this pen. For my hands they’re extremely comfortable to hold, and quite grippy given the texture on the section. This pen is ready to be your faithful writing companion :-) I’m primarily a vintage guy and don’t use this pen nearly enough to justify owning it.
[A2] Pelikan M200 w/SS Med. nib $110+shipping
This is Pelikans entry level model in beautifully chatoyant brown! This pen is stunningly beautiful and also writes extremely well. Hot take….Pelikan stainless nibs are fantastic! Not often talked about due to Pelikans much ballyhooed gold nibs, the stainless examples are wet, smooth, reliable writers. This pen is essentially brand new and has only been inked once with the very gentle Waterman Black(my mainstay ink). Another good thing about these stainless nibs is that they write true to size, unlike a lot of Pelikans gold nib offerings ;-) The absolute best thing about these pens are the screw in nib units standard across most of Pelikans lineup. They make these pens a breeze to clean! You get the ink capacity of a piston filler with the easy to clean nature of screw in nibs? Sign me up!!
[Parts due to no nib, A2 otherwise] Tactile Turn Gist-all copper NO NIB $125+shipping
This pen is essentially brand new and has only been inked once or twice. I’m keeping the nib that was in this pen, however it’ll take any Bock #6 nib unit that you’d like to install. This pen is in immaculate condition as it relates to the metal, save for a bit of patina to the raw copper surface of the body(which can be polished if you prefer). I don’t think Tactile Turn produces the Gist model any more(a mistake imo as these are really awesome pens) so if you’ve been wanting one of these, I’d grab it! As time has passed, it seems they come up for sale less and less often. Also willing to trade this pen for a Titanium version in similar, like new condition
PENDING[B+] Gravitas Pocket pen-copper w/SS Fine nib $90+shipping
Gravitas pens are hot right now! It’s no wonder as you can feel the quality of workmanship as soon as you pick one of these pens up. This pen is in great condition with only a bit of a developing patina. I’m happy to polish it for the new owner if requested. Grab this pen at a discount and without the wait of shipping across the pond.
PENDING[B+]Gravitas Pocket Pen-brass w/Ti ultra flex nib $100+shipping
Same story as above for this one. A quality pen with almost zero signs of usage. The ultra flex nib has been quite a surprise for me! It is much softer than say, a noodlers Ahab. I’m talking MUCH softer. It also writes extremely well! The thing is, since I’m a vintage flex guy, the nib just doesn’t get the use it deserves, so it’s listed here :-(
[B+]Platinum PTL-5000a w/14k Fine nib $90+shipping
Another Platinum, this one discontinued several years ago. While it’s a great pen that writes wet and smooth for a Japanese fine, I just don’t use it. These pens gained an almost cult like following and were known to have nibs with flexibility. This example is no different. Great pen in great condition and with a great nib!

Ryne Sandberg Upper Deck New Frontier?
Hello collectors,
I recently received an old lot of baseball cards from the early to late 90s, and found out through help from this subreddit that most of them are worth pennies. I’m pulling out oddball cards that don’t look like the rest and came across this one. I can’t seem to find any sales data on it through a few searches on Google and eBay. Rather than digging further I was hoping someone might be able to help me ballpark a price for it. If it’s worthless that’s fine, I just want to double-check everything and make sure there’s nothing good in here before I sell everything as a cheap lot.

2023.06.01 00:51 Crxcked Questions for Negotiating with a Collector... over collection fees and original amount

I want to negotiate with a collector for the amount to be paid and begin correspondence correctly.
About 25% of the ask is "collection fees" so I have no intention of paying that portion and preferably less on the original amount too. I assume who owns the debt makes a difference on what I can negotiate as everywhere its suggested that it was purchased for "pennies on the dollar" and they'll have the motivation to settle.
However, I have reason to believe that the creditor currently still may be the original company and that the collections agency is just assisting their collection. Because the letters I've received clearly state to make any checks payable to the name of (original creditor). And the agency's website implies they assist them as a service, and other details like they only report to bureaus if their client requests it. So I'm thinking this will be tougher to negotiate the full amount and maybe only the fees are negotiable. Am I doing an accurate read on this?
Any recommendations for this? I want to try for settling for half the original amount, and then work my way up to just the original amount if needed.
I also want to (as widely suggested) get in writing and signed that the debt is fulfilled and there can't be any negative reports to the credit bureaus. Any recommendations on how I should go about this? Just request this from them or some other way?
Luckily there hasn't been any negative report yet as per experian, and I do intend to do business with the original creditor again in the future. I just don't want them to post-settlement put it on my credit report as "settled" or something. I want it to not see my credit at all.

2023.05.31 23:36 Worried-Yam6111 Advice for someone getting back into collecting?

I used to collect when I was a kid but it’s been over 10 years so things have changed a lot. I unfortunately gave away my collection and am starting from scratch. I have a ton of nostalgia for the Kanto region because that’s what I grew up with but buying used cards makes me nervous because I have no clue how to spot fakes etc.
My plan right now is to just focus on one collection and maybe get into the Paldea Evolved stuff since it’s coming out so soon!
I just ordered a booster box of lost origins to open and some penny sleeves from Amazon and I’m beyond excited! I’d love any advice for a newbie collector!

2023.05.31 14:04 DrachenballZ Die Scheiße mit der Krankenkasse

Wer meine Geschichte auf einfach_posten schon etwas länger verfolgt weiß, dass ich momentan arbeitslos bin und quasi noch vom Arbeitsamt abhängig bin. Ich soll mit Reha dort starten um ins Arbeitsleben starten zu können. Besonders dank meines Schwerbehindertenstatus wurde das angeregt.
ALG 1 ist ausgelaufen und Bürgergeld gibts nicht. Wohne ja noch bei meinen Eltern, bin 23 (also "muss" ich auch dort wohnen bleiben) und meine Eltern besitzen ein Haus und haben ihre Rente - bedürftig für Bürgergeld ist also was anderes.
Jetzt durfte ich leider in einem Telefonat mit meiner Krankenkasse erfahren, was einer der Vorteile im Leben ist, wenn man 23 wird und kein Arbeitslosengeld mehr kriegt: Man muss sich "freiwillig" selbst bei der Krankenkasse versichern, weil man aus der Familienversicherung rausgeschmissen wird.
Knapp 200€ soll ich jeden Monat blechen, das sei der Mindestbetrag. Ich weiß gar nicht, wo ich das Geld her nehmen soll. Klar, so rein rechtlich gesehen ist die Idee, dass meine Eltern das zahlen. Die sind ja so gesehen noch für mich verantwortlich. Aber meine Eltern konnten schon immer scheiße mit Geld umgehen.
Darüber könnte ich auch meckern, wie man eigentlich einen Neuwagen leasen kann, ein eigenes Haus samt Garten besitzen kann und alle 3 Monate für ne Woche in den Urlaub fliegen kann aber dennoch grade bei alltäglichen Dingen scheinbar von der Hand in den Mund leben muss und die Angebote von Penny und Netto vergleichen muss. Aber gut - ist ihre Rente, da will ich nicht rein reden.
Aber: Laut meinem Vater haben sie die 200€ im Monat für die Krankenversicherung nicht übrig.
Jetzt habe ich noch nicht mein ganzes ALG 1 verbraucht, was im April geendet hat. Das kann ich dafür also noch einsetzen, aber sagen wir mal... das geht auch nicht auf ewig, irgendwann fällt diese Zahl auch auf 0. Vor allem weil ich mich doch teilweise selber versorgen muss, grade was Lebensmittel anbetrifft, weil meine Eltern sich darum wiederum nicht für mich kümmern.
Ich hasse alles daran, ehrlich. Jetzt habe ich gehofft, dass ich nach so vielen gescheiterten Versuchen mit Arbeit, in diesem geschützten Rahmen der Reha endlich probieren kann, langsam Sachen auf die Kette zu kriegen. Aber jetzt scheint es doch schon wieder so, dass ich Geld besorgen muss.

2023.05.30 09:12 Whydonate_Platform Beste Fundraising-Ideen für Schulen

Fundraising-Kampagnen können Schulen dabei helfen, Stipendien und neue Programme anzubieten, die akademische Ausbildung voranzutreiben und Großprojekte zu verwirklichen. Gut geplante und umgesetzte Fundraising-Strategien können für die meisten Schulen einen echten Unterschied in der Bildungsqualität ausmachen. Fundraising im Bildungsbereich ermöglicht es den Schulen, Kindertagesstätten, mehr außerschulische Aktivitäten, Hortplätze und erforderliche Bildungsprogramme anzubieten.
Das Sammeln von Geld für Schulen hat viele Vorteile. Die Schüler erwerben wertvolle Führungsqualitäten und Selbstvertrauen. Spendenaktionen fördern die Teamarbeit, indem sie den Schülern helfen, untereinander und mit ihren Eltern und Lehrern zusammenzuarbeiten, um das gemeinsame Ziel zu erreichen. Die Schüler lernen auch etwas über die soziale Bedeutung, die Fürsorge für andere und die Verbesserung des Lebensumfelds.
Schulen mit Spendenaktionen ermöglichen es auch den Eltern, sich zu engagieren und eine aktivere Rolle im Leben ihrer Kinder zu übernehmen. Schließlich ermöglichen die zusätzlichen Mittel den Schulen, ihre Einrichtungen und Programme zu verbessern. Eine Schule, die sich mit Fundraising beschäftigt, ist eine echte Win-Win-Situation. Wir haben einige einzigartige Fundraising-Ideen für Schulen zusammengestellt, damit Sie Ihre Schulspendenaktion im Handumdrehen starten können.

Fundraiser-Ideen für Grundschulen

1. Pyjama-Tag in der Schule

Dies ist eine einfache Fundraising-Idee für Schulen, die die Schüler (und vielleicht sogar einige Lehrer) begeistern wird! Sammeln Sie Spenden von Kindern im Tausch gegen einen Tag in der Schule im Pyjama.

2. Ostereier finden

Diese Idee ist ein saisonaler Publikumsliebling und leicht zu organisieren. Verstecken Sie die Ostereier und andere Leckereien in der Nähe der Schule und lassen Sie die Kinder danach suchen. Die Kinder können dies einzeln oder in Teams tun. Die Schüler bzw. das Team, das die meisten versteckten Leckereien findet, gewinnt natürlich!

3. Schnitzeljagd

Schnitzeljagd macht Schülern aller Altersgruppen Spaß, sind aber für die ganz Kleinen besonders faszinierend. Die Schüler können für sich selbst oder für ein Team zahlen, um teilzunehmen. Überlegen Sie sich ein Thema, das mit dem Ziel in Zusammenhang steht, und organisieren Sie die Schnitzeljagd. Stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie einen Preis für das Gewinnerteam bereithalten. Bonuspunkte gibt es für Schüler, die in einem Entdecker-Outfit zur Schule kommen!

4. Singen von Weihnachtsliedern

Weihnachtslieder sind natürlich auch jahreszeitlich bedingt, aber wen würde es nicht berühren, wenn Schulkinder Weihnachtslieder singen? Als weihnachtliche Fundraising-Idee für Schulen kann diese Aktivität den Schulen eine Menge Geld einbringen. Studieren Sie ein paar Wochen vor Weihnachten mit den Schülern einige Weihnachtslieder ein. Führen Sie Ihren Schülerchor durch die Nachbarschaft Ihrer Schule und sammeln Sie Geld für die Schule.

5. Disney-Tag

Am Disney-Tag können sich die Schüler gegen eine kleine Spende als ihre Lieblings-Disneyfigur verkleiden. Bewerben Sie diese Schulspendenaktion rechtzeitig, damit die Eltern die Kostüme anfertigen oder kaufen können.

6. Basteltag

Ermutigen Sie die Kinder, in Gruppen oder zusammen mit ihren Eltern zu basteln, und lassen Sie die Zuschauer die hübschen Kunstwerke kaufen. Erkundigen Sie sich bei den örtlichen Bastelgeschäften und versuchen Sie, die Materialien kostenlos zu bekommen – eine lustige Aktion, um Geld für die Schule zu sammeln.

7. Wer macht den schönsten Schneemann?

Wenn Sie in einem Land leben, in dem es viel Schnee gibt, können Sie an verschneiten Tagen einen „Schneemannbau-Wettbewerb“ auf dem Schulhof veranstalten. Bitten Sie um eine Spende pro Team für die Teilnahme an dem Wettbewerb. Bieten Sie dem Gewinnerteam einen schönen Preis an.

8. Limonadenstand

Verwandeln Sie diese klassische Lieblingsbeschäftigung in etwas, das der Schule wirklich helfen kann, Geld zu sammeln. Helfen Sie Ihren Schülern, bei einer Schulveranstaltung einen Limonadenstand aufzubauen. Die Schüler können Limonade verkaufen und dabei tolle Geschichten über die Finanzierung eines Schulprojekts erzählen. Stellen Sie sicher, dass Sie alle benötigten Materialien kostenlos erhalten.

9. Schulpicknick

Diese Fundraising-Idee ist ideal für wärmere Tage und hilft den Schulen wirklich, eine Gemeinschaft zu bilden. Ein Picknick kann die benötigten Mittel einbringen und man kann gleichzeitig Zeit in der freien Natur verbringen. Bei der Planung eines Picknicks geht es darum, einen Park oder eine Grünfläche (vielleicht sogar den Schulhof) auszuwählen, Ankündigungen zu machen, einen Eintrittspreis festzulegen, Essens- und Getränkespenden zu sammeln und eine Tombola zu organisieren, um noch mehr Geld zu verdienen.

10. Stein-Papier-Schere-Turnier

Bitten Sie die Schüler um eine kleine Gebühr für die Teilnahme am Stein-Papier-Schere-Turnier der Schule. Bilden Sie Teams und lassen Sie das Turnier beginnen. Der Gewinner ist derjenige, der die meisten Gewinnkombinationen bildet. Dann kommen die Gewinner zusammen und spielen das Spiel erneut. Machen Sie weiter, bis nur noch wenige Teilnehmer übrig sind. Dann können sich die Schüler für 5 € wieder einkaufen, um erneut am Spiel teilzunehmen. Der letztendliche Gewinner erhält natürlich einen Preis.

11. Popcornverkauf für Schulspendenaktionen

Im Gegensatz zu Schokoriegeln ist Popcorn ein relativ gesunder Snack (wenn man nicht zu viel Zucker, Salz oder Butter darauf gibt). Um die Sache für Sie noch einfacher zu machen, können Sie mit vielen Unternehmen zusammenarbeiten, um eine Popcorn-Spendenaktion für Ihre Schule zu organisieren – sie liefern leckeres Popcorn, verkaufen es und teilen den Gewinn. Die Einbindung von Snacks ist eine großartige Fundraising-Idee für Schulen.

12. Ein Theaterabend

Alle Eltern werden kommen wollen, um ihr Kind in einem echten Theaterstück spielen zu sehen. Bereiten Sie gemeinsam mit Ihren Schülern ein geeignetes Stück vor, werben Sie bei ihren Freunden und Familien für das Stück und begeistern Sie sie dafür, das Stück zu sehen. Stellen Sie sicher, dass die Zuschauer wissen, dass das Geld für einen bestimmten Zweck verwendet wird (z. B. für neue Computer für die Schule).

13. Übernachtung in der Schule

Jeder weiß noch, wie viel Spaß Übernachtungen machen können! Organisieren Sie eine Pyjamaparty in der Turnhalle oder in der Schulbibliothek. Teilen Sie den Eltern mit, was jeder Schüler mitbringen soll, und organisieren Sie lustige Aktivitäten, Spiele oder einen Film, der den Kindern Spaß macht. Sammeln Sie einen bestimmten Betrag. Das gesamte Geld, das im Rahmen der Schulspendenaktion gesammelt wird, geht natürlich an die Schule.

Fundraising-Ideen für die Realschule

1. Rechtschreibwettbewerb

Bei den meisten Rechtschreibwettbewerben treten die Kinder als Einzelpersonen an. Jedes Kind wird nacheinander aufgefordert, ein anderes Wort zu buchstabieren, und sie können ihre Antworten vortragen oder auf Papier schreiben. Sammeln Sie Geld, indem Sie von den Kindern und Eltern, die zum Zuschauen kommen, Eintrittsgelder verlangen, oder indem Sie um Geld für eine „zweite Chance“ bitten.

2. Pub Quiz

Denken Sie sich lustige, aber anspruchsvolle Fragen über die Schule und ihre Geschichte oder lustige allgemeine Fragen aus. Laden Sie Personen ein, die mit der Schule verbunden sind, und legen Sie einen Termin für den Wettbewerb fest. Um Geld zu sammeln, können Sie einen kleinen Eintrittspreis verlangen, Essen und Getränke verkaufen oder beides tun. Wählen Sie gute Fragen und einen guten Quizmaster aus, und geben Sie deutlich an, wann der Wettbewerb zu Ende ist.

3. Verkleidungsparty

Diese Fundraising-Idee für Schulen ist lustig und vielseitig. Lassen Sie die Schüler sich als Figuren aus Filmen, Büchern oder Fernsehsendungen verkleiden und lassen Sie sie natürlich auch für diese Gelegenheit bezahlen. Diese Fundraising-Idee ist nicht nur eine großartige Möglichkeit, Schüler zu engagieren, sondern lässt sich auch leicht in den Lehrplan einbauen.

4. Hindernisparcours

Organisieren Sie einen Wettlauf mit Hindernissen wie Seil- und Wandklettern, Laufen über einen Balken, Sackhüpfen, Laufen durch Sprinkleranlagen oder Pfützen mit Seifenwasser, Treppensteigen, Ausweichen vor mit Wasserfarbe gefüllten Luftballons, Schlammgruben, Springen durch Reifen, usw. Verlangen Sie einen Beitrag für die Teilnahme und versuchen Sie, das Material kostenlos zu bekommen. Hindernisparcours sind für alle Beteiligten aufregend, sodass Sie damit eine ganze Menge Geld einnehmen können.

5. Elternabend

Bitten Sie um einen kleinen Beitrag und organisieren Sie einen netten Abend mit Essen und Getränken für die Eltern Ihrer Schüler. Das Treffen kann ganz entspannt sein, und Sie können sogar Freiwillige bitten, auf die Kinder aufzupassen, damit die Eltern nicht extra für ein Kindermädchen zahlen müssen.

6. Lesemarathon

Diese Fundraising-Idee für Schulen ist vielleicht der Favorit von Lehrern und Eltern, da sie die Kinder dazu anregt, zum Vergnügen zu lesen. Die Schüler erhalten von Lehrern, Verwandten oder Eltern eine Zusage über die Anzahl der Seiten oder Bücher, die sie lesen können, und führen dann ein ordentliches Protokoll über diese Stunden.

7. Luftballons

Füllen Sie 100 mit Helium gefüllte Luftballons mit Geld und verkaufen Sie sie für je 10 €. Stecken Sie 100 € in einen Ballon, 50 € in zwei, 20 € in zwei, 10 € in zwei, 5,00 € in zwei und 2,00 € in den Rest. Mit dieser Idee werden Sie nicht Tausende von Dollar einnehmen, aber es ist eine gute Idee und eine einfache Möglichkeit, Geld für die Schule zu sammeln.

8. Die große Aufräumaktion

Wer möchte nicht etwas tun, das gut für die Umwelt ist und gleichzeitig Geld einbringt? Bei der Organisation eines Nachbarschaftssäuberungsprojekts werden die Spenden an ein bestimmtes Ziel gebunden, z. B. an die Anzahl der gesammelten Kilogramm Abfall oder die Anzahl der gereinigten Straßenkilometer. Eltern, Ehemalige und Mitglieder der lokalen Gemeinschaft verpflichten sich, den Schülern zu helfen, „mitzumachen“.

9. Die Anzahl der Jellybeans erraten

Diese Fundraising-Idee für Schulen ist nicht umsonst so beliebt. Sie ist unglaublich einfach zu organisieren und sehr unterhaltsam. Stellen Sie ein Glas mit Jellybeans in den Flur der Schule. Lassen Sie die Schüler einen oder zwei Dollar zahlen, um zu erraten, wie viele Jellybeans im Glas sind. Am Ende der Woche geben Sie den Gewinner bekannt – die Person, die die Zahl erraten hat, die der Anzahl der Jellybeans im Glas am nächsten kommt. Der Gewinner darf das Glas behalten oder einen anderen Preis gewinnen.

10. Muffins dekorieren

Dies ist eine perfekte Aktivität für die Kleinen (und diejenigen, die sich noch sehr jung fühlen). Das Backen von Muffins ist relativ kostengünstig. Bitten Sie mehrere Eltern (oder Klassen), ihre Lieblingssorten von Muffins in die Schule zu bringen. Kaufen Sie Garnierungen in großen Mengen (oder lassen Sie sie sich schenken): Zuckerguss, Schokoladensplitter, Kokosflocken usw., und bitten Sie Besucher und Schüler, einen Muffin zu kaufen und ihn zu verzieren.

11. Ein Pfannkuchenfrühstück

Eine weitere ausgezeichnete und einfache Idee zur Mittelbeschaffung für Schulen ist das Aufpeppen des Schulmenüs, indem morgens vor der Schule in der Turnhalle ein Pfannkuchen angeboten wird. Bieten Sie Getränke und andere Erfrischungen an und berechnen Sie pro Portion.

12. Ein Tag voller Spaß für die ganze Familie

Einmal im Monat oder mehrmals im Jahr organisieren Sie je nach Ihren Möglichkeiten einen Tag für die ganze Familie. Planen Sie diesen Tag auf einen Samstag, damit sowohl Schüler als auch Eltern anwesend sein können. Gestalten Sie das Event nicht nur unterhaltsam, sondern auch lehrreich. Bitten Sie Mitarbeiter, Ehemalige und einige Eltern um ihre Hilfe. Sie können viele verschiedene Aktivitäten organisieren, z. B. Kinderschminken, Gartenarbeit oder Bildhauerei mit Ton. Verlangen Sie einen Beitrag für die Teilnahme.

13. Sportfest

Wenn der Frühling kommt, wünschen wir uns nichts sehnlicher, als Zeit im Freien zu verbringen. Organisieren Sie einen Spiel- oder Sporttag und bieten Sie verschiedene Sportarten an, damit alle Kinder die Möglichkeit haben, daran teilzunehmen. Verlangen Sie einen Eintrittspreis für die Eltern und andere Zuschauer. Verkaufen Sie Merchandising-Artikel, Snacks und Getränke, um den Erlös aus den Spenden zu maximieren.

Fundraising-Ideen für Gymnasien

1. Babysitting

Gönnen Sie den Eltern etwas Entspannung und lassen Sie die Oberstufenschüler einen Abend lang babysitten, während die Eltern einen schönen Abend verbringen. Stellen Sie dafür eine Gebühr in Rechnung und sagen Sie ihnen, dass der Erlös der Spendenaktion zugutekommt.

2. Battle of the Bands

Musik ist das Hobby vieler Gymnasiasten. Organisieren Sie einen Bandwettbewerb an Ihrer Schule. Bitten Sie die Bands um Geld für die Teilnahme sowie Freunde und Familie, die natürlich kommen, um sich die Show anzusehen.

3. Karaoke-Wettbewerb

Eine lustige Variante des Bandwettbewerbs ist ein Karaoke-Wettbewerb. Sie können die Schüler Teams bilden lassen und an Ihrer Variante von The Voice oder Lip-Sync-Battles teilnehmen lassen.

4. Flohmarkt

Organisieren Sie einen großen Flohmarkt in der Schule. Bitten Sie Schüler, Eltern, Lehrer und Mitarbeiter, gut gebrauchte Gegenstände zum Verkauf zu spenden. Das Wichtigste für einen florierenden Flohmarkt ist die Werbung, also bewerben Sie den Flohmarkt mit Nachdruck. Der Flohmarkt kann eine der besten Spendenaktionen für Schulen sein, bei der die Schüler die Bedeutung des Gebens verstehen können.

5. Filmabend

Diese Idee kann für Spendenaktionen in Grund-, Mittel- und Oberschulen verwendet werden. Organisieren Sie die Vorführung eines geeigneten Films in der Turnhalle oder gehen Sie eine Partnerschaft mit einem örtlichen Kino ein, damit die Familien einen neuen Film zu einem Sonderpreis sehen können.

6. Farblauf

Mit einem Farblauf macht das Laufen für Schulen und Schüler mehr Spaß. Die Schüler sollen weiße T-Shirts tragen. An bestimmten Kontrollpunkten werden sie von Freiwilligen mit Wasserfarben besprüht oder mit Luftballons mit Wasserfarben beworfen. Sammeln Sie Geld, indem Sie für die Teilnahme Geld verlangen oder Sponsoren bitten, Geld für jede gelaufene Runde zu versprechen.

7. Die Herausforderung des Direktors

Regen Sie Ihren CEO dazu an, eine Herausforderung anzunehmen (z. B. seine Haare in einer lustigen Farbe zu färben), wenn das Spendenziel erreicht wird. Die Schüler können ihre Lieblingsideen einbringen, indem sie spenden oder einfach spenden, um das Spendenziel so schnell wie möglich zu erreichen.

8. Spenden von Wertstoffen

Bitten Sie die Leute, ihre gebrauchten Tintenpatronen, ausrangierte Elektronik und alte Zeitschriften zu spenden. Sie können sie dann an Recyclingzentren weiterverkaufen. Mit solchen Recycling-Fundraising-Ideen für Schulen können Sie den Schülern auch eine Menge über die Umwelt beibringen.

9. Die Macht der kleinen Veränderungen

Diese auch als „Penny Drive“ bekannte Spendensammelaktion ist einfach, aber höchst effektiv, da sie den Wettbewerbsgeist der Schüler ausnutzt. Stellen Sie pro Klasse ein Spendenglas auf dem Flur auf. Die Schüler können dann ihr Wechselgeld in die Dosen geben, bis sie voll sind. Die erste Klasse, die ihren Topf füllt, erhält eine Belohnung.

10. Tag ohne Schuluniform

Wenn an Ihrer Schule das Tragen von Schuluniformen vorgeschrieben ist, ist diese Spendenaktion für Schulen genau das Richtige für Sie. Organisieren Sie mehrmals im Jahr Tage, an denen das Tragen einer Schuluniform nicht erforderlich ist. Bitten Sie die Schüler stattdessen um eine kleine Spende. Auf diese Weise können die Schüler ihren persönlichen Stil zeigen, und Sie können Geld für die Schule sammeln.

11. Waschen von Autos

Richten Sie auf Ihrem Schulhof eine Autowaschanlage ein. Lassen Sie Mitarbeiter und Schüler freiwillig die Autos von Eltern und anderen Besuchern gegen eine kleine Spende waschen.

12. Zu Fuß zur Schule

Je nachdem, wo Ihre Schule liegt und wie die Schüler jeden Morgen zur Schule kommen, könnte dies eine großartige Idee sein! Organisieren Sie eine Woche, in der die Schüler zu Fuß und nicht mit dem Auto zur Schule kommen. Bitten Sie die Schüler, das Geld zu spenden, das sie durch den Verzicht auf das Auto sparen.

13. Wachstumskapital

Diese Schulspendenaktion ist einzigartig und interessant und regt die Kreativität und das unternehmerische Denken der Schüler an. Geben Sie jedem Schüler einen kleinen Betrag „Wachstumsgeld“ und bitten Sie ihn, seine Kreativität zu nutzen und einen Weg zu finden, die ursprünglichen 5 oder 10 € in einen größeren Geldbetrag zu verwandeln. Es kann hilfreich sein, hier einige Grundregeln einzuführen.

Fundraising-Ideen für Schulen – College-Fundraising-Ideen

1. Wettbewerb zur Dekoration des Studentenwohnheims

Eine Idee, die sich eher für Hochschulen eignet, ist ein Wettbewerb zur Dekoration von Studentenwohnheimen. Lassen Sie die Schüler eine kleine Gebühr zahlen, um ihr Zimmer während des Spiels zu betreten. Denken Sie sich einen Preis aus und belohnen Sie den am besten renovierten Raum – unsere Nummer 42 unter den Ideen für Fundraising in Schulen.

2. Kochwettbewerb

Denken Sie sich ein Thema aus (z. B. Muffins, Chili, Pfannkuchen) und lassen Sie die Teilnehmer eine Gebühr zahlen, um ihre besten Gerichte zu präsentieren. Um das Spendenaufkommen zu erhöhen, können die Gäste die eingereichten Gerichte probieren und bewerten, indem sie selbst eine Spende leisten. Dies kann eine der lehrreichsten Spendenaktionen für Studenten sein, da Kochen eine Grundvoraussetzung ist.

3. Namensrechte

Namensrechte sind nicht nur für Millionäre reserviert. Verkaufen Sie die Namensrechte für einen Ziegelstein in einer Wand oder für einen Stuhl in einem Hörsaal an einzelne Studenten, die die höchste Spende leisten.

4. Alumni-Mittagessen

Gehen Sie eine Partnerschaft mit einem lokalen Restaurant ein und organisieren Sie ein Mittagessen für Ihre Alumni. Sie können das Mittagessen als Teil eines Alumni-Wochenendes oder als eigenes Event durchführen. Sie können Tickets verkaufen, um Geld zu sammeln, oder die Teilnehmer um eine Spende bitten.

5. Patenschaftsbriefe

Lassen Sie die Schüler Briefe an Unternehmen schreiben und sie bitten, Ihre Programme/Events zu sponsern. Die Schüler können sie an die Steuerabzüge erinnern und ihnen eine Bescheinigung anbieten, die die Unternehmen dann aufhängen können.

6. Soziales Projekt

Sammeln Sie Geld, indem Sie die Fähigkeiten und Dienstleistungen der Schüler und Lehrer dem Meistbietenden anbieten. Diese Fähigkeiten können sowohl beruflicher Art sein (z. B. Fotografie, Nachhilfe, Webdesign) als auch alltäglicher Art (z. B. Einkaufen, Autofahren, Babysitten). Andernfalls können Sie Ihre Mitarbeiter und Schüler, die an dem Projekt teilnehmen, 24 Stunden lang sponsern lassen.

7. Zen

Studenten haben viel um die Ohren. Veranstalten Sie vor den Prüfungen ein Event, das ihnen hilft, Stress abzubauen und zu entspannen. Lassen Sie Freiwillige Aromatherapien und sanfte Nacken- und Fußmassagen anbieten. Sorgen Sie dafür, dass viele Duftöle und Kerzen sowie schöne, beruhigende Musik zur Verfügung stehen.

8. 10-km-Lauf mit Selfie-Thema

Studenten und Selfies – die perfekte Kombination für eine der besten Ideen für Spendenaktionen an Hochschulen! Die Studierenden machen an bestimmten Kontrollpunkten Selfies (um sie später in den sozialen Medien zu posten). Registrieren Sie die Teilnehmer und lassen Sie sie einen Eintrittspreis bezahlen. Da diese Selfies geteilt werden, ist diese Aktivität auch ein hervorragendes Marketinginstrument und kann noch mehr Spenden anziehen.

9. Scrabble-Turnier

Einzelpersonen zahlen für die Teilnahme. Scrabble-Spieler können gegen eine zusätzliche Spende einen Blick in ein Wörterbuch werfen. Sammeln Sie mehr Geld, indem Sie Snacks verkaufen, Auktionen und Verlosungen organisieren usw. Dies kann eine der besten Ideen für die Mittelbeschaffung am College sein, da sie nicht nur Spaß, sondern auch Intelligenz beinhaltet.

10. Jeden Tag eine warme Mahlzeit für eine Woche

Jeder Schüler freut sich über eine warme Mahlzeit. Bitten Sie verschiedene Restaurants, ein Abendessen für zwei Personen zu spenden, und verlosen Sie dann eine Woche lang Essen gehen. Passen Sie den Preis der Lose an das Endziel der Spendenaktion an.

11. Überraschungsbox

Besonders beliebt ist dies zu Beginn eines jeden Semesters oder während wichtiger Prüfungsphasen. Die Pakete können Süßigkeiten, Chips, Schokoladenmilch, Kekse, eine Tasse, Obst, eine Zeitschrift usw. enthalten, die sowohl für männliche als auch für weibliche Studenten geeignet sind. Eltern sind immer auf der Suche nach Ideen, was sie ihren Kindern schicken können, wenn sie nicht zu Hause sind. Schicken Sie Bestellformulare an die Eltern, die dann Care-Pakete als Überraschungsgeschenk bestellen können. Das meiste Geld verdienen Sie, wenn Sie diese Pakete selbst zusammenstellen.

12. Multikultureller Markt

Organisieren Sie ein Event, bei der die Schüler den Reichtum ihrer eigenen Kultur mit anderen teilen können. Die Schüler können ihre lokalen Gerichte, Süßigkeiten, Tänze oder andere Traditionen vorstellen. Auch wenn die Organisation dieses Events etwas mehr Zeit in Anspruch nimmt, birgt sie doch ein großes Potenzial. Sie können Mitglieder der lokalen Gemeinschaft und Ehemalige einladen und jeden um eine Spende für die Teilnahme am Event bitten. Dies war die letzte Idee, um mit oder für Ihre Schule Geld zu sammeln.

Fundraising-Ideen für Universitäten

Universitäten können für Studenten eine Herausforderung sein, denn ein Hochschulstudium kann eine Menge Druck bedeuten. Andererseits ist Bildung eine Notwendigkeit. Studierende, die ein Hochschulstudium anstreben, müssen die Chance haben, es mit der Vision zu erfüllen, die Gesellschaft zu verändern. Dafür müssen die Universitäten jederzeit ihr Bestes geben. Die Universitäten benötigen aus vielen Gründen Geldmittel, z. B. für Hochschulentwicklungsprojekte, Studienmaterial und außerschulische Aktivitäten.
Die Studierenden sind meist mit ihren Studienaktivitäten, Hausaufgaben und Aufträgen beschäftigt, während die Lehrkräfte mit ihrer Verwaltungsarbeit beschäftigt sind. Aus diesem Grund hat sich Online-Crowdfunding zu einer der beliebtesten Optionen für Universitäten entwickelt. Deshalb hat WhyDonate die besten Fundraising-Ideen für Studenten und hilft ihnen, wertvolle Lektionen und Verantwortungsbewusstsein zu lernen.

Crowdfunding ist eine der mühelosesten Online-Fundraising-Ideen für Universitäten. Universitäten können für jeden Zweck online Geld sammeln, indem sie eine Spendenkampagne starten und unbegrenzt viele Spenden von überall auf der Welt erhalten. Machen Sie einfach deutlich, was Sie brauchen, und das ist alles!
Wir von WhyDonate können Ihnen helfen, durch Crowdfunding Geld für Universitäten zu sammeln. Wir sind hier, um Sie zu unterstützen, wann immer Sie Hilfe bei der Mittelbeschaffung für Hochschulen benötigen, mit einigen der besten Ideen, die es gibt. Es gibt sie zuhauf, aber wir werden uns auf einige konzentrieren, die für Universitäten nützlich sind. Also fassen wir uns kurz und fangen wir an.

1. Öko-Camping

Studenten lieben die Idee des Campings. Nun, wer tut das nicht? Zelten gehört zu den Outdoor-Aktivitäten, bei denen man sich nicht nur körperlich betätigen, sondern auch lernen kann, wie wichtig es ist, sich um Mutter Natur zu kümmern. Planen Sie einen ökotourismusfreundlichen Campingausflug an der Universität, bei dem Sie den Wert der Natur, der Nachhaltigkeit und der Tierwelt vermitteln können. Sammeln Sie die Campinggebühren für die Spendenaktion der Universität. Auf diese Weise können Sie einen abenteuerlichen Plan mit vielen wichtigen Lektionen erstellen.

2. Buchverkauf

Um es klar zu sagen: Wir werden hier nicht über den Verkauf von Studienbüchern sprechen. Fast jeder hat Bücher in seinem Haus. Manchmal sind es sogar ungenutzte oder gelesene Bücher. Sie können sowohl die Studenten als auch die Mitarbeiter der Universität bitten, einige Bücher oder Zeitschriften zu spenden und einen Buchverkauf für die Spendenaktion der Universität zu organisieren. Bücher sind für alle da, also wird jeder an solchen Spendenaktionen interessiert sein.
Bitten Sie die Eltern und die örtliche Bevölkerung, an dem Buchverkauf teilzunehmen, denn bei Buchverkäufen an Universitäten geht es darum, Wissen zu verbreiten und gleichzeitig Geld für die Universitäten zu sammeln. Diese Art von Fundraising für Universitäten ist eine gute Praxis für Bildungseinrichtungen. Darüber hinaus können Sie auch einige Bilderbücher und Zeichenblätter verkaufen, um die künstlerischen Talente der Menschen zu fördern.

3. Spendenaktion zur Baumpflanzung

Der Umwelt zu helfen und gleichzeitig Geld für die Universität zu sammeln, schreit nach Produktivität und Spaß zugleich! Bitten Sie Studierende, Mitarbeiter, Eltern und die örtliche Bevölkerung, sich an der Spendenaktion der Universität zu beteiligen. Machen Sie den Leuten klar, wie sie eine Sache unterstützen können, indem sie Bäume pflanzen. Machen Sie ihnen klar, dass ihre Spenden eine direkte Auswirkung auf die natürliche Umwelt und die Sache haben, für die sie spenden.
In einigen Fällen unterstützt auch die Regierung solche Spendenaktionen und beteiligt sich an der Kampagne, indem sie Bäume spendet oder die Pflanzung von Bäumen unterstützt. Universitäten können eine Kampagne über Crowdfunding-Plattformen wie WhyDonate starten, die der Spendenaktion weltweite Aufmerksamkeit verschaffen können. Die Menschen können einen Baum pflanzen und einen kleinen Betrag spenden, um ihre Unterstützung zu zeigen. Auch die Nutzung von Social-Media-Plattformen kann einen großen Unterschied für die Spendenaktion machen. Teilen Sie Ihre Kampagne und fügen Sie ein paar Bilder hinzu, und schon sind Sie startklar.

4. Talent-Konzerte

Studenten haben immer Lust auf fetzige Musik und tanzen am liebsten zu den Texten mit. Dies ist eine gute Fundraising-Idee, um Geld zu sammeln. Dies kann eine der besten Spendenaktionen für Schulen sein, da die Leute gerne Talentshows sehen. Lassen Sie die Besucher Eintritt bezahlen und bitten Sie sie, für die Sache der Universität zu spenden. Auf diese Weise können die Leute den Abend genießen, die Universitäten können ihre Sache zum Leben erwecken und Sie können viele verborgene Talente unter den Studenten entdecken.

5. Spendenaktion Backen

Bei dieser Spendenaktion für die Universität geht es darum, die Kochkünste der Studenten und Mitarbeiter der Universität zu entdecken. Ob zu einem besonderen Anlass oder an einem ganz normalen Tag, jeder liebt Süßes und Herzhaftes. Organisieren Sie einen Verkauf von Backwaren wie Keksen, Kuchen und Croissants, um Geld für Ihre Benefizveranstaltung zu sammeln. Bitten Sie die Schüler, die Backwaren herzustellen und sie zum Verkauf auszustellen. Die Leute können die Artikel kaufen und Geld in die Spendenbox einwerfen. Lassen Sie die Käufer Fotos von der Spendenaktion machen und teilen Sie die Bilder in den sozialen Medien.
Menschen auf der ganzen Welt können den Zweck der Spendenaktion sehen und spenden, auch wenn sie die Produkte nicht kaufen. Sie können die Kampagne auch über Crowdfunding-Websites starten und Bilder des Verkaufs teilen, so dass viele Menschen an der Spendenaktion der Universität teilnehmen können.

Los geht’s

Die Mittelbeschaffung für Schulen ist schwierig. Schulen müssen zunehmend Spenden sammeln, um bestimmte Einrichtungen bezahlen zu können. Die Organisation von Fundraising-Aktionen kann teuer sein und den Stress im Schuljahr noch verstärken.
Wenn Sie das Schuljahr planen, sollten Sie den Fundraising-Plan nicht außer Acht lassen. Lassen Sie sich von den oben genannten Ideen für die Mittelbeschaffung an Ihrer Schule inspirieren und machen Sie sie zu Ihren eigenen! Wählen Sie Ideen aus, die zu Ihrer Schule passen, und achten Sie auf ein ausgewogenes Verhältnis zwischen den leicht zu organisierenden und den schwieriger zu verwaltenden Aktivitäten: Setzen Sie Ihre Prioritäten. Überfrachten Sie den Schulkalender, die Eltern, das Personal und die Schüler nicht mit Fundraising-Aktivitäten.
Die meisten der oben genannten Fundraising-Ideen für Schulen sind physisch, aber vergessen Sie auch die digitalen Spenden nicht. Die Website Ihrer Schule sollte modern und funktional sein, regelmäßig aktualisiert werden und für Mobilgeräte optimiert sein, damit Sie Spenden virtuell empfangen können. Ein Online-Spendenverfahren kann die Arbeit der Schule bei der Mittelbeschaffung erleichtern. Informieren Sie sich über Whydonate, eine Spendensoftware, die sich problemlos in Ihre Website integrieren lässt und mit der Sie sowohl einmalige als auch wiederkehrende Spenden entgegennehmen können.
Durch die Planung und Durchführung zahlreicher Spendenaktionen über das ganze Jahr hinweg kann Ihre Schule ihre Ziele erreichen und den Schülern auf bestmögliche Weise dienen.

I have no idea where to start or what to look for. Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m estimating I may have 40-50000 Pennie’s saved from 1970-2010. Is this a big deal?

2023.05.25 23:48 snotick My Mom dropped off a bag of 300 coins for me to go through. I'm no coin expert.

I'm a very amateur (and kind of a newbie) collector. I have a few coins, but more recently have been buying 1oz silver bars or rounds. I have about 20oz in the safe.
I was actually going through a jar of change the other night (looking for errors, etc) and my Mom called to talk. My Dad was diagnosed with dementia a couple of years back and they've been cleaning and clearing out things in the house, knowing they will need to go to a home in the future. She said she saw an add on TV for a coin collector at one of the hotels and wanted to know if I thought this would be a good place to take their coins to sell. My first thought was, "I didn't know you had coins". The first words out of my mouth was "hell no". I told her I highly doubted they would get much for them there. I asked a little about them and told her I would catalog them and do a little research.
A couple of days later, again while talking on the phone, she said my Dad took the coins to a coin shop to see what they would give him (my heart sank). She claims they offered him $290 for some of the coins, but couldn't say what the coins were. My Dad tried calling my Mom, but she missed the call. So, he didn't sell them. I told her I would come and get them, or she could drop them off. As, I was worried the next call I had with her was that they sold them on Craigslist.
I got the coins a couple of days ago and have been going through them. It seems the bulk of the value is in a 1921 Morgan's (10x), 1922-1926 Peace dollars (11x), 1917-1963 quarters (50x), 1964 quarters (37x, they really held on to those last silver quarters), and a few silver dimes and silver half dollars. They also have about 80 pennies from 1909-1957. But, 40 of those pennies are the 1943 steel pennies (I checked them all with a magnet).
The Morgan's and Peace dollars are in extra fine condition (I've only read a few things online in order to grade). I think these were my grandparent's and sat in the safe most of their life. The quarters are all varying grades. Nothing in better than good condition. The rest is unremarkable.
I may end up buying the lot from my parents. Using NGC I created a spreadsheet with pricing and quantities. The silver dollars are going to be my sticking point. It seems they price out around $35-$40. If true, then it's well above spot price that I'm paying for bars or rounds. They don't seem especially rare. They may end up selling most of those and I will buy everything else.
Just thought I'd share. Sorry for the ramblings. Anyone else's parent's surprise you with their horde?

2023.05.23 19:14 Luckyblizt I’ve had it with price gouging (RANT)

I literally just saw a post on fb about someone trying to figure a good price for a Penny 5in hugmee, and SO many people are like “YoU CaN SeLL heR FOr 100 to 200 BuCKs!” And I can’t say anything on there because “✨Positive vibes✨ or you’re banned”. You can’t say anything without people getting upset. I’m not trying to bully anyone, I just want people to be reasonable.
It’s people like them that make it hard for collectors. As IF everything isn’t already expensive enough, but the fact that people think that they can just charge whatever they want for plush that are meant to make people happy is gross. If you want money, play the lotto or get a job. Yeah, working sucks but at least you have integrity and pride? Instead of having no respect for others or even yourself.
I’m so tired of people taking advantage of a craze and ruining it with greed. I’m not saying anything should be free, but dang it make it affordable. No one should make the choice of buying a 5in plush or paying a bill. It’s nuts and they should be embarrassed and ashamed of themselves.

2023.05.20 23:17 aowshadow Rereading the Frame, part 11

That did take me a while to work out.
Welcome to Rereading the Frame, a punctual series impervious to ethical scrutiny.
I’m done. Everything points out to me shitting the worst episode of all ti-WAIT! STOP THE PRESSES! New maps!!!
This gives me renewed energy: fasten your seatbelts guys, we’ll proceed full force.
Onwards, like the Titanic!


Chapters 71 and 85
Kvothe goes chasing the wind, but finds a shipwreck instead. Then he saves the maer’s life, loses some tak games and sneaks Denna in a private club despite having the members’ card already.
Kote’s narration gets interrupted: the generous Mayor Lant wants to include his mistress in his will. To do that he squats the whole inn for half an hour, but mind, he won’t pay more than a penny. Bast tries to open Kvothe’s chest and fails. The threat of Celum Tinture still looms over the Fae princeling’s head.
Kvothe fights with Denna, gets fucked sideways by the maer and gets introduced to the magical world of bandits hunting.
The Bentleys visit the Waystone Inn. Bast refuses his paternity over little Ben. Collecting taxes proves to be the most hated job ever, even in a fantasy setting.

Details worth pointing out

The splendid mayor Lant
The only guy to ever negotiate prices in the Frame is… the richest guy in Newarre.minus Kote? I won’t lie to you: I wouldn’t hang out with Lant irl, but as a character I really like him. More on Lant later, after the details section.
The most worldly of you will think: “well, of course Lant is rich. Unlike the other characters, he just proved you that he takes money seriously.” Except Kote’s prices are actually fair. If you don’t want to check past episodes, just consider how Kote treats the Bentleys.
Red Gremsby
There’s no more Gremsby wine in the Waystone Inn. I find this a little mystery, because usually the Waystone Inn is as supplied as it gets. Kote says it’s because of the roads, and that could very well be another of Rothfuss’ reminders of the Frame’s grim situation.
But I also I like to think that Gremsby isn’t… that much of a wine.
Hear me out: WMF 17 told us that barrel whiskey (the best Kote has) costs a penny a swallow. Lant won’t pay more than a penny for a glass of wine, which tells us that Gremsby is supposed to be quality wine.
However… we already saw in the Foundation what quality wine is, and Kvothe did too. For example, at the maer, Kvothe had his personal wine cabinet. And at the Eolian he could taste wines from all over the Four Corners. Here are all the wines Kvothe knows about:
-Grape pomace wine (poor quality – here only on a technicality)
-Ruh wine (given they have no land I find it impossible for them to have a specific variety, but I want to note it nevertheless)
-Spiced wine (Tarbean – generally poor wine)
-Fallows red (Skarpi’s choice – quality unknown)
-Deep red wine (different unnamed varieties)
-Honey wine
-Cerbeor wine (Aturan, pale pink)
-Avennish wine (fruit wine, sweet and light)
-Black wine (from Shalda mountains)
-Velegen wine
-Feloran wine (dark and fine – it shows up multiple times, possibly Vintish?)
-Vintish wine (a true luxury)
Here in Newarre, however, Kote doesn’t have Gremsby. But he has at least three wine varieties: “Old wine, smooth and pale”(possibly Cerbeor?), the famous strawberry wine (possibly Avennish?) and the one he gives to Lant.
Logic wants Kote to have at least a fourth one, affordable for everyone, but the text doesn’t mention it. Possibly a fifth one if the wine from WMF 136 isn’t the same he gave to Lant. Logic wants it to be different, since Kvothe took Lant’s glass of wine from the kitchen.
Anyways: I cannot confirm it and maybe it’s just my personal opinion, but I like to think Gremsby is not something spectacular, but rather a low-medium quality local wine. AKA Mayor Lant doesn’t know much about real wines.
Aowshadow, mind a question?
Sure, why not-
Is it called Rereading the Frame or Rereading all the Wines in KKC? Is this your indirect way to tell us you’ve got a problem? AKA: are you finally done talking about wine for today?
…not yet
Here’s a curiosity: dark wine never equals to something good for Kvothe. Remember when he gets drunk after fighting with Denna? When he gets alchemically poisoned? When he eavesdrops Denna’s tragedy?
Kvothe vs Kote: cards
In some past episodes I already talked about how most of the times, whatever Kote does (or doesn’t) in the Frame is a dark mirror of what Kvothe was used to do in the Foundation. Here we see another example with the fake card game. Foundation Kvothe was an avid card player, and enjoyed playing with his friends. He was quite of a card shark too. For example, in Vintas he had no problems emptying Baronet Bramston’s pockets with some Faro games.
But here in the Frame? Cards are just a tool for Kote’s act, and he never plays with them.
Imagine Kvothe playing and drinking with his friends at the Eolian, between some laughter, crowd noise, music all over the place and the occasional listener buying him a drink. And why not, the occasional Denna cameo.
Kote, instead? Look at him, in the most silent Inn in miles and miles, zero friends except for some clients that don’t even believe him (Aaron), that misread his old self completely (Old Cob) or misread his current self (Bast). The only remaining guy holds Kvothe’s story hostage and is more interested in some stupid trial records than what Kote wants to talk about. The only toast? To a poor soul who died last night.
Here, music is no occasion for fun. Nor is alcohol (check Bast’s behavior at the beginning and end of WMF), nor is chatting, mostly about the terrible events happening all around. It makes sense that cards aren’t an occasion for fun either.
Unrelated: Faro is supposed to be a game that rewards probability calculus (something a University student like Kvothe would like), but I also wonder if Denna taught Kvothe some card tricks from time to time. It wouldn’t surprise me the slightest, given he took from her the hidden knife trick, for example.
Brass key
Another reminder from Rothfuss that keys and locks in this inn are a bit strange. Worth reminding that this is a brand new info from WMF, since in NoTW there’s no mentions about it.
Kvothe vs Kote: rumors and secrets
In the Foundation, Kvothe knows a lot of secrets, and pays close attention to rumors, especially whenever he is at some inn. In the Frame, Kote doesn’t even know about… the worst kept secret in the village.
The Lightning Tree
Widow Creel and Old Lant are also mentioned in TLT, so we’ll see them again at the end of this reread.
The puzzle lesson
We can see Kote proving that he didn’t forget his times with Abenthy, because now he’s pulling out a full Ben teaching experience. Notice the game/challenge aspect of the lesson, and even questions about lateral thinking (“what would you do if something knocked back?”).
I wonder if Rothfuss took inspiration for this teaching method from personal experience of from Richard Feynman. I mean, given Rothfuss’ study curriculum, I refuse to believe he doesn’t know Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!
Speaking of Feynman, any of his videos is worth watching. But since you are here exclusively for KKC…
Actually I am only here because you owe me money.
…SINCE YOU ARE HERE EXCLUSIVELY FOR KKC, concerning Feynman I am sure you’ll appreciate this.
Celum Tinture
The amount of mentions make the dreadful book a Cekhov Gun, more than a recurring joke. Not surprising that Kvothe, ‘not good with alchemy’, keeps an alchemic book in the Waystone Inn. Today we also learn about some of the stuff he keeps in the basement!
Btw: we all remember that Celum Tinture shows up even in the Foundation and in The Lighting Tree, right?
I didn’t bother checking, but I wonder if Celum Tinture gets even more mentions than the Book of the Path. Given it’s the only study book that gets mentions both in and outside of the Frame besides obviously The Mating Habits of the Common Draccus… more than wondering if something’s up, I wonder what is up.
About names
We all call it the thrice-locked Chest, but I had forgot that the name comes from Bast. Kote says the name is fine, but that doesn’t make it necessarily true.
Speaking of another name, Kote calls himself Kvothe the Bloodless. How curious.
NoTW is clear: Kvothe has many names, bought and paid for them. Why calling himself the Bloodless instead of Kingkiller?
Case 1: he likes Bloodless. Not a surprise: Bloodless evokes his unbending nature in face of injustice, and may remind him of one of the very few good things he actually made, aka the Arrowcatch.
Case 2: he dislikes Kingkiller. Given his reaction when Aaron was talking at the start of WMF, I wouldn’t be surprised.
Case 3, the crackpot one: he doesn’t use Kingkiller because he didn’t kill any king, but just took the blame. After all, isn’t this series about creating expectations and then pulling the carpet from under our feet?
Bast knows what pirates are
That’s not a given!
Getting older
Plunder the chest, crack the chestnut… guess Kote has truly become older. He’s never been stranger to puns, but once he was sharper. Seriously, this kind of shitty puns belonged to Sim, not Kvothe!
Here we see some grammarie in action, although it fails. I promised you in the past that we’ll look at all those instances in a single episode, and so it will happen. Worth pointing out that IF all faen and human magical disciplines are a way to come closer to Naming, here we see copper doing his shenanigans once again.
Bent wire, prybar… these are not tools for the assistant of an innkeeper. This stuff came from before Newarre. Worth noting that these tools come from Basts’s room, not Kvothe’s.
Bast’s prybar is made of a “bright metal”. I bet ha’penny it’s not made of iron, for obvious reasons.
Note: Bast doesn’t use the famous Edro technique because Kvothe’s story has yet to reach that point!
Over 400 pounds
Clear evidence that Bast and Kvothe are strong? These two guys managed to move the chest upstairs. Given the display of strength by Kote in early NoTW, I guess he was the one on the bottom-side of the stairs, given that’s the heaviest side.
An inquisitive mind would ask: “why did the chest have to be moved upstairs, especially since there’s no way to open it, nor steal it unless you have a bulldozer?”
Strange, soft, ringing noise
like a padded bell being struck in a distant room.
When Bast’s hatchet gets stopped by “something”, a muffled sound can be heard. That seems to rule out something like the warding stones from WMF 146, since those made no sound. Chances are, an improved version of the arrowcatch is involved. That would also explain why the chest weights so much, although over 400 pounds it’s the weight of the empty chest. But the protection device could be built in the chest itself, like the locks.
The other instances when iron striking/being struck by something and producing a bell-like sound I can recall are: 1 Tehlu striking Encanis.; 2 Aaron striking the skindancer; 3 Kvothe shattering an iron sword with sympathy in WMF 131 (although that’s a different case).
But Bast’s hatchet is not made of iron, supposedly.
Possible play on words
He (Bast) looked at the chest, large as a gentleman’s traveling trunk.
Would that make Kote a gentleman? Beware of his anger, then!
Since I’ve talked about wine…
…let’s talk about acids as well, LOL.
Muriatic and formic exist, but so does Aqua Regius, although under a slightly different name.
According to Wikipedia it is “a mixture of nitric acid and hydrochloric acid, optimally in a molar ratio of 1:3.[b] Aqua regia is a fuming liquid. Freshly prepared aqua regia is colorless (…) It was named by alchemists because it can dissolve the noble metals gold and platinum, though not all metals.”
By the way,
“We have some potent stuff downstairs”.
Mh, finally some mention about something kept in the basement. For the time being, let’s add it to the Waytone Inn catalogue!
Crumpled sheets
In NoTW, we learnt that Kvothe’s memoir was crumpled. Here welearn there’s crumpled sheets. In WMF 151 we’ll learn it’s three sheets in total. I think Kote telling Bast to leave the crumpled page on the floor, to then picking it up in WMF 151 is only due to narrative effect. Ending WMF 71 like that works well.
Bast offers his chair to Hap
This is a little nice touch that I like. It’s not something he’d usually do. Notice that when Lant came in the Inn, Bast stood there at the table. He had to be hushed upstairs.
Little trick from Rothfuss that immediately directs the reader to side with the unluckiest family in Newarre. Again, like in Lant’s case, we’ll talk more about these characters later.
Remember Aaron being a young daydreamer in WMF 2?
The Bentleys were part of his wishful thinking. Aaron believed that if he took the Penitent King’s coin some things would stop happening. Needless to be said, he’s wrong on all accounts.
1 Things will start get better again - False. The whole Frame is about the world being on fire due to Kvothe – things are NOT going to get better.
2 The levy taxes will stop – LOL. How does Aaron think the King is paying him the royal?
3 The roads will be safe again – No. Roads are never safe: bandits have existed, exist and will always exist. Also… introducing the new feature: “ScraelTM - courtesy of Kvothe the Eternal Fuckup!” Free trial for those wandering outside Newarre at night!
4 The Bentleys won’t lose their land – Sure. And I am going to get blown by all my exes at the same time, while their current men cheer for me. What’s next Aaron, Book 3 gets published? Frame 12 is going to show up on time?
The Bentleys are fucked, period. No amount of Kote’s little help will save them. It will help, but that’s it. WMF 85 is quite clear on the subject.
Aaaaaah! Woman alert! I repeat, woman alert!
Just when I was about to think that the Waystone Inn was a members-only sausage festival, here we find a rare example of named female in the Frame. And not only she has a name, but she’s actually here, on scene! Aren’t you scared? Brrr… this is scary stuff!
Jokes aside: did this lack of characters bother me? No. But after some repeated online criticism, it bothered Rothfuss: according to the man himself, if he could redo it all, he’d put some girls in the Waystone Inn. And so he did, halfway of WMF. It makes sense that Hap doesn’t have any lines of dialogue. I mean…
What has Mary written to Bast? It’s either private correspondence we have no hints about, or possibly commissions, given that sometimes Bast is supposed to do errands for Kvothe outside of Newarre. But Mary’s as poor as it gets and has been in financial troubles for at least a year, so this doesn’t make much sense. Unless TLT or Book 3 shine some light, this will stay a mystery.
Shades on Abbe Grimes
Emphasis on that “probably” Kote throws in. Unrelated for the sake of this reread, but finding a modern fantasy author who doesn’t shit on Christian-like clergy is impossible.
As far as we know Grimes is a decent sort of fellow (I mean, if Bast of all people is shocked!), but there’s an underlining mistrust from Kvothe and obviously the author. The fact that the Bentleys are presented as positive as it gets is not unintentional, imo. Notice how the emphasis is quickly moved from Grimes to the organization he represents. While on one side Kote has every reason to resent the Tehlin cult… I think it’s also on Rothfuss, given that Bast immediately “understands” without objecting.
About last wills
Rothfuss is right: testaments make beasts out of humans. I’ve never been in a testament reading that didn’t come down to knife fighting.
When I die, I want my belongings to be put in a septic tank and have my heirs pit-fighting inside the tank while wearing bikinis. Everyone will be free to enter The Grand Battle Royale (that’ll be the name of the contest), as long as they pay the price of admission: snorting part of my ashes with a five euros bill.
KKC has a little peculiarity: widows beat widowers 4 to 1, stories excluded (not that stories change much, actually they favor the widows team!). This would be easily explained if there were recent conflicts, but except for the rebellions against the Penitent King (that’s how Widow Creel got her status? I mean, if she’s that hot, she’s young) there doesn’t seem to be that much war around.
Temerant’s situation in the Frame is on the verge of precipice, not in the abyss already.
You see what young men like Aaron do?
Well, that could be a reason why girls outlive boys. But what about some Adem widowers? Mysteries, mysteries…

Why have I the feeling that you still need to say something.
So: wine, hot suffering widows… that’s what you’re about today? That’s the kind of reread you provide to the community?
Hell no my friend, this is a classy reread! Therefore, let’s move on something cleaner: let’s talk about toilets.
The dirty business
Mary wants to take little Syl to the restroom. The restroom door is near the stairs. This makes no sense.
1 Newarre has no sewers, as far as we know. Nothing points towards that direction, and for many good reasons. Sewers are one of the last things to come to the countryside, where you can do your business… well, everywhere.
2 Upstairs, in Chronicler’s room, there’s a chamber pot. Thinking about it, there’s also chamber pots in Ambrose’s supercalifragimodernexperalidocious inn room. The maer, and I repeat the fucking maer has a chamber pot. If anything, the fact that pipes for warm water exist in the maer’s mansion is a wonder of modernity. But chamber pots are for when you cannot go outside, and nothing more.
Why on Earth should Kote keep a toilet inside the inn when there’s countryside all around? If you really have to, put a bathroom outside, near the stables, and you’re set.
Doing otherwise is stupid. You don’t want to see the guy who cooks emptying the restroom's bucket right from where you eat! Unless you’re willing to let the entirety of the clients shit all day long and then empty the restroom only at the end of the day…
Unless Rothfuss pulls a Harry Potter on us and tells us that University Masters used to teleport their shits with sympathy, of course.
The only alternative explanation I have is that he needs gases or organic fuel to power whatever he’s doing in the Waystone Inn basement, but I don’t think Rothfuss would do that. If anything, because there would be readers who would go “he’s powering his trap with shit LOLOLOL”.
Mary trusts her little baby to Bast
And not to Kote.
I wonder if this is still an occurrence like in the Foundation, when girls can immediately tell that Kvothe’s not in for the long term, or if she sees a side of Bast we don’t see. More when we’ll read TLT. Let’s just say that with girls, Bast presents himself in a different way. Problem is, in 99% of the Frame we see him with men (always brief appearances), his Reshi or Chronicler.
I also wonder if that’s why Kote jokes with Bast about the paternity of the baby.
He’s blonde!
That’s Bast’s rebuttal. Not “I wouldn’t touch that girl”. Not “they are a good family”.
“He’s blonde,” that’s his first rebuttal.
I find it a bit funny, and telling both of Bast and his dynamic with his Reshi.
Little Ben calls Bast dog, which Bast doesn’t like. This doesn’t surprise us, given the text gives him cat-like connotations all the time.
The singsong chant to calm little Ben
A rare instance of Kvothe doing his theatrics for something positive and selfless. I really like this touch from Rothfuss, and I love that Kote does NOT actually calm the baby.
Except that Mary obviously offers a justification :’( But hey, we take whatever we can get.
I’m not sure if this was intentional on Rothfuss behalf (99% sure this is just wishful thinking: of course he was more interested in metric, wordplay and the scene with Bast) but I like to think that Kote’s singsong is a textbook example of one Kvothe’s two major flaws: hubris.
Why? Because the chant was working. But instead of just keeping it simple, Kote had to make it…more. He had to make it rhyme with a joke to his public (Bast) instead of focusing on calming little Ben. The song had to calm the baby, but also had to have perfect metric, but also had to make sense, and had to flex on Bast.
Remember Tintatatornin at the Eolian? Or whenever Kvothe speaks with the maer? Or… well, the almost entirety of The Kingkiller Chronicle? You can all sum it up here, in this little funny episode.
About prices
Coherently with all the Frame info, the Bentley accept the cheapest form of alcohol there is: pomace cider.
Oh no! Call the social services, he’s talking about alcohol again!
B-but! Anyways, It’s worth noting that the Bentley’s last will costs nearly as much as… Mayor Lant’s afternoon drink. And only because Chronicler gave them a discount the size of my dick: enormous (according to my mom).
Newarre may be a small poor town, but a gap between the likes of Old Cob and the Bentleys still exists. Mind: Old Cob wouldn’t buy whiskey from the tap (in WMF 17 he only accepted it because Kote offered a toast), but still he can afford pie and the daily drink.
The Bentleys? Make no mistake: when Mary reaches to pay for the cider, it’s not like she was really in for a drink. She’s basically paying the implicit ‘entrance ticket’ since Chronicler is in the Inn, exactly like Lant did. As Kote says, he hasn’t see the couple in “a long while”. No need to guess why.
Once again, evidence of Chronicler being sharp
I’ve been pestering you through all the reread about Chronicler noticing stuff and registering it in his brain without necessarily saying it out loud. This time, since it involves something else than Kvothe, Rothfuss shows it on page: Chronicler gifts the Bentleys a generous discount because he “has eyes” and remembered “the smith’s prentice words”.
I’m banking a castle on Chronicler pointing out something about Kvothe on Book 3. More on this in the next episode, because we will find another implicit evidence of Chronicler keeping his cards face down.
Unrelated: in the Foundation you don’t see how much paper costs, when Kvothe is at the University. Here you can finally have a price approximation!
About dresses and patches
I don’t remember where I theorized that Wil and Sim could be “paying” Kvothe via their cards game to help him out. In the same way, here Kote is “paying” the Bentleys by breaking his own fence and so on.
A possible evidence to support this headcanon (is it?) of mine would noticing two parallels: 1 both the Bentleys and Kvothe are too proud to ask for help 2 both dress in rags. Chronicler noted the Bentleys’ dresses on his own. You really think Wil and Sim never noted Kvothe’s? Come on.
Tangentially related, but Chronicler’s generosity shouldn’t be understated: not only he’s giving them a discount that makes him lose money, but he’s been robbed just few days ago.
Third levy
Let’s go to WMF 93 and notice that a lockbox of taxpayers money (if it really is tax money we’re talking about, because the Eld job to me looks shady as fuck), has over two hundred royals.
Assuming that’s a normal tax for the Foundation, here in the Frame we are talking about levy taxes by a group of guys friendly called bleeders.
How much money are they taking from people? And giving the third levy tax is going to come, how much have they taken already?! Well, the bleeders’ song gives us a hint about their methodology: they are as merciful as locusts.
Consider: if Carter takes the King’s coin he gets a royal. If you need to squash some rebels, 200 soldiers aren’t enough. Actually, the fact they are recruiting people for the third time is quite telling by itself.
Once again, an independent hand
At the end of WMF 85 one of Kvothe’s hands surprises Kote by being curled in a fist. This is not the first time that hand plays this kind of games.
Let’s test your drowsiness level: SLEEP CHECK! Quick: answer! Which hand are we talking about? Left or right? Past episodes already provided you some hints, and it ain’t over yet. More about this in future episodes. SLEEP CHECK OVER!
Play on words
Whenever in KKC Kvothe “looks, (…) a rueful smile on his face” you can bet that the word “Edema” has been mentioned or will be mentioned soon.
Possible foreshadowing
I’m keeping this one near the end because I didn’t want to start with crackpottery. When Kote decides for the puzzle lesson, he goes “Better yet, assume I am dead (…)”, to which Bast replies, GENTLY, “that’s a little grim, Reshi”.
And Kote fires back, without any hint of laughter in his voice “life is a little grim, Bast (…) You’d best start getting used to it.”
Here’s the crackpot: if Kote is a man waiting to die, and let’s say he can’t go past the doors of stone (aka sleeping, as we’ve seen already and as we’ll see in the future… or dying, and about that I’ll make something at the end of this reread), this whole exchange assumes a different connotation. It’s that “gently” adverb that should throws us off, because it prepares Kote’s almost brusque reply. Without that “gently”, it’s just Kote being grim as the Frame likes to portray him from time to time. But with that “gently”, Kote’s comment can be interpreted in multiple ways.
On a personal note
I love the little songs in WMF 85. I also like that while the first song presents a series of jobs and their summarization, the second one does the same but hammers again and again over the same concept: the bleeders’ job is to take, take, take until nothing’s left.
The two songs also contribute in bringing the morale down, making the tone bleaker.
Calling the genie
For once, Kvothe’s polishing the bar “absentmindedly” makes sense. Last time (WMF 46-47) the bar was used both for eating and drinking. Given Kote asks Lant if he wants something to eat, it makes sense the kitchen’s still open, which means the Inn hasn’t had its post-lunch cleaning session.
But we all know this is more about Rothfuss reminding us Kote’s habits than anything else.
The Edema don’t own property, as a rule.
Says the guy who calls himself Ruh to the bone. Now: of course he’s pretending to be someone else and cannot betray his true origins, but still this tells us that Kvothe is here for something really specific.

The people

I like WMF’s Frame. Newarre seems more choral, for lack of better words, and its denizens feel more alive than, let’s say, a Caleb from early NoTW.
I really like that Kote’s narration is interrupted by someone else’s menial necessities. This openly contrast with what will happen in next episode, where the narration will be interrupted by Bast’s shock (and by the author’s need for secrecy – this time the breaks are more due to flow than the necessity of withholding info).
It’s chart time!
[̲̅$̲̅(ツ)$̲̅] Mayor Lant [̲̅$̲̅(ツ)$̲̅] (ツ)ᕤ The Bentleys ᕦ(ツ)
Alone Altogether
Two secret sons (do they know he’s the father?) Two official sons
Negotiates on the price, and doesn’t get what he wants Get what they’d like for free, despite trying to pay
Fine clothes, embroidered jacket Worn-out clothes, patches and seams
Kote couldn’t care less about him (doesn’t even know Lant’s open secret) Kote actively tries to help them
Bast has to be removed to leave his chair Bast immediately gives his chair up
Drinks from glass Drink from cup
Rich As poor as it gets
Old All four of them are described as young
“Lant” can also mean “stale urine” “Bentley” can also be the dope ass “Continental GT V8”
I like mayor Lant. The same way I like the mayor from Sepúlveda’s The Old Man Who Read Love Stories, because both could use a beating in the parking lot, but as characters they make other people shine. This is doubly true in Arcadia Newarre, where everyone apparently lives in perfect harmony. Once Lant shows up, finally we learn that Widow Graden’s relatives were ready to skin each other over a music box, that despite Grimes being a decent fellow there’s someone who mouth behind his back (Kote) and of course there’s Lant himself.
Now that’s the countryside I know and can relate to! Bless you Lant for that, for bringing a ray of real life in an otherwise perfect rural town.
If any of you is missing the irony, remember that I know TLT paints another picture of Newarre as well. It’s the Frame’s nature to make everything in Newarre so partial and compartmentalized. There couldn’t be any other way, especially since Kote refuses to go out and socialize (think of Shep’s wake, for example).
Point is: Lant, fuck yeah. Finally we have an asshole in the Waystone, but not the kind of asshole who skins waymen and then comes at night to disembowel farmers. Nor those assholes hired by Bast. Lant is just a rich, stupid dude. And that’s perfect.
What? How can I tell you he’s stupid?
Because if you want some privacy, all you need to do is going to that table far away and lowering your voice tone, instead of acting theatrical, locking the inn’s door and having people go upstairs to then shout to make them come down. No wonder everyone knows his secrets, he doesn’t understand what keeping low profile means! Like… you see Kote and Bast hearing what the Bentleys are saying? No. Table’s far away, all you need to do is not screaming... Fuckin’ Lant, LOL


For the purposes of Frame 11, X is the Penitent King. I just recently considered how much his presence haunts the Frame, because while his nametitle shows up just few times, we still see his influence, be it direct or not. Mentions of rebels, Kvothe’s bounty, Aaron/Carter considering the idea of taking the King’s coin, and once again the levy taxes.
I don’t think we’ll get His Penitent Majesty visiting the Inn in Book 3, but His presence it’s still here. I can’t wait to read his reveal, although I’m 120% sure it’s Alveron.
I think the Penitent King’s role to be slightly more important than perceived: surely in the Foundation, but also in the Frame. Until the situation evolves, he’s the only real link we have with Kvothe’s past, given they seem to know each other (WMF 17).

Dark chest of wonders

Due to character limit, I’ll just say: Roah wood, resistant to fire and acid, precautions against naming (copper) and Fae (iron), multiple metals inside the lock gears, some sympathy (?) against blows, heavier than your mother. The locks are protected against picking, which is admirable in itself.
No hinges (it works with pressure?). Is the joke about something knocking back actually a joke? Possible correlation with Folly's mounting board beside the material? Unknown. What does it keep? The million talents question. Is it Kvothe's best work? Most likely. Where and how did he build it? This is worth a post on its own, sadly here I don't have enough character space :(
As you can guess, this was the last section I wrote. I guess I could do like in Frame 2 and continue in the comments section, but back then it looked like shit!
My initial plan was just skipping this section but then everyone of my two readers would have jumped at my throat screaming “you’d skip the fucking thrice-locked chest because all you want to talk about is toilets you fucking schizo rrraaahhh!”
And the answer is... yes. Problems?
Worry not: we check the chest in Frame 14.

Kote’s lies

Kote’s act in front of the major is quite evident. Normally he’d never wring his hands. Quite a stereotyped reaction, whom Lant pays no attention to.
I guess the broken fence too, although it’s business from the past.

Narrator shenanigans

Fair game this time. The POV does not immediately focus on Kvothe because Lant’s footsteps aren’t heard at first, which means that if there was a POV, it’d be Chronicler (also Kote disappears briefly in the kitchen).
Then it immediately focus on Kvothe rather than Bast (if Kvothe apologetically rests his hand on Bast’s knee, it’s clear the POV’s on him. Same as the end of the chapter, since it’s Kvothe who follows and closes the door). It can’t be Bast because he closes his eyes “as if he were listening”. Were it Bast POV, there wouldn’t be either “if” or “listening”.
In past chapters the POV’s transition was signaled by spacing on pages, or different paragraphs. In WMF 71, probably given the chapter’s short size, it happens seamlessly.
WMF 85 is all Kvothe, although it starts with a sort of global perspective. As said before, no tricks this time. Unsurprisingly. These two are transition chapters.
Worth pointing out that in both chapters it’s “Kvothe” unless he’s expressly acting as “Kote” with the new guests, but as said in the Bastpast I don’t believe that Rothfuss is following a precise rule, but rather he’s going with the flow. I strongly believe that the Kvothe/Kote switches aren’t always done coherently. By this point of the series I don’t even see it as a flaw anymore, it’s just a matter of fact. If and when the series ends, I’d like to do a retrospective over this stuff. Until then, I’ll believe there’s nothing to be drawn from these name switches. At least, not with consistency!

The nature of Frame interruptions

These two chapters are textbook intelligent breaks. WMF 71 breaks right after a romantic scene between Kvothe and Denna, and gives us just enough pages of chest puzzle to prepare for the turning point in the Foundation: Kvothe’s commission for the maer is going to end!
It’s anything but a surprise that WMF 72 immediately starts with “several days after” and basically tells us that the job for the maer is done. Because Rothfuss was playing a little trick. Guess what: WMF 71 was a break indeed, but not from Kvothe’s errands for the maer, but rather a necessary pause before the turning point with Denna.
The point is: WMF 71 is a necessary break and doesn’t outstay its welcome; it’s quick, nice, and right to the point; it breaks the tempo and gives us the necessary description of the thrice-locked chest, which we’ve seen since NoTW, and which will most likely show up at the end of Book 3.
The break from WMF 85, on a narrative standpoint, fits like a glove: by this point we’ve been with Kvothe’s party in the woods for nine chapters already. A narrative break is needed, especially because of the second part of Iax’s story. I don’t think Rothfuss could have done it without a Frame break unless he had to invent some new sub-adventure in the Eld, but by that point he had enough meat to cook all over the stoves.
But it also plays a trick. At least, imo.
Unlike 71, 85 doesn’t introduce any new plot element. It’s more a re-statement about how shit things are. Always welcome, especially in a five-paged short chapter that introduces some side characters mentioned since NoTW. That’s it. But it ends with a line about “what sort of dark desires lead a group of men to wait beside the road, killing tax collectors in open defiance of the king.”
And that leads us to immediately assume, chapters later, that Kvothe’s party found tax money. I’m not that sure about that. So to say, I think Kvothe’s party went searching for a dog and found a horse instead. Maybe I’ll make a separate post for this subject, since it’s outside of the Frame’s purposes. For the sake of this thread, let’s just say that despite rocking, WMF 85 adds absolutely nothing new. Given’s KKC otherworldly’s “textual ergonomics” it feels really strange. My tentative solution is: Rothfuss wanted 1 a girl in the Waystone Inn, 2 reminding us how shit things are and 3 pulling out a little misdirection.
I’m not able to translate in English how I feel about how Rothfuss treats words in KKC. There’s no space wasted, terms, metrics, word count (but also their length! Think of the prologues!) and phonetics are always calculated. That’s why WMF 85 seems a bit strange. Also, in good narrative, every scene does serve at least one between two purposes: it tells us something about the plot or about the characters. In this sense, WMF 85 is quite a cheapskate, and that’s why I suspect that some fuckery is involved.
You have no idea how much English language pisses me off, because what I’ve just wrote reads like a criticism while it’s not. Me right now :(((
Long story short: given how Rothfuss normally operates, I feel WMF 85 is playing some little narrative trick.

Geography and time notions

Nothing relevant, this time. FWIW It makes sense for Lant to come after lunch, it’s exactly when the Inn is supposed to be empty. People are working in the fields!
Of course the mayor doesn’t want to eat, he’s already had lunch at home and cannot risk staying in the inn for too long.
The table where Chronicler sits it’s far from the bar.

Maps from the readers: the evaluation

I love Waystone Inn maps. I really do. Now, let me tell you a story: once Viagra stopped working, the doctor told me there was nothing else to do and I was ready to upgrade my condition to fertilizer. But then I saw a new map and my cock became harder than Karnak’s obelisk. Now my wife is satisfied and my dog is happy (for different reasons, you disgusting criminals). Now my neighbours cannot sleep at night, which is good since I hate them, and I am known at work as Lanre Reborn.
And that’s all thanks to new Waystone Inn maps!
Now that you know the truth, you have no excuses: drawing your version of the Waystone Inn map, if you’re a man, becomes a moral obligation. And if you’re a woman, an exercise in foresight. Let’s say one day we meet irl and you fall in love with me: what’s the point if I can’t do the business? Drawing your map: an investment for a possible future.

Personal comment

WMF Frame chapters > NoTW Frame chapters. With the only, relevant, exception of WMF 1. That’s my incontestable opinion. But it’s also my incontestable opinion that I should get a wake-up blowjob every day, and today I’ve been woken up by the alarm clock instead. I guess my opinion’s actual value is not what I think it is.
Next episode will come out before the spoiler chapter, I guess. Fwiw I’m doing some KKC related things all at once. But whether they’ll be posted or not, that’s another issue.
Thanks for reading and for your insights, past episodes can be found here.

My aunt brought this booklet with pennies from her trip to America to feed my steadily growing penny collection (the Pressed Pennies album is almost full)
I'm a 16-yo collector, and i started collecting around 6-8 years ago. My aunt has helped me a LOT when it comes to expanding my penny collection because she travels around more than me and is very supportive of my penny collecting. Without her, my penny collection would be way smaller, as I live in a country with very few pressed penny machines. shout out to my awesome auntie :)

2023.05.20 21:43 StuartEnglert SILVER WISDOM—A Due Diligence Tribute to My Silver-Stacking Mom

The dimes, quarters and half-dollars that Mom tucked into her apron when she worked as a waitress in the 1970s forever changed the way I view money. I doubt many of the truckers and travelers who plucked coins from their pockets and purses considered the silver content of the tips they left on the tables at 231 Plaza & Truck Stop. But Mom did.
As an amateur coin collector, Patricia Englert had witnessed the removal of silver from U.S. coinage in the 1960s and she expected the value of those hoarded—and exceedingly rare—coins would increase over time. She was right.
Each night after dinner she sat at the kitchen table, sorting through handfuls of jingly change she’d earned pouring coffee and serving roast beef sandwiches at the bustling cafe along Interstate 64 in southern Indiana. She checked the dates and mintmarks on every coin, hoping to add an uncommon copper penny or shiny Jefferson nickel to her collection, and she set aside every coin that contained silver, even if it was a duplicate.
I didn’t appreciate the value of those tarnished and worn silver coins—or my mother’s foresight—at the time. I was a typical shortsighted teenager with no grasp of history or money. I didn’t consider the price of much of anything other than a pack of Camel Light cigarettes, a full tank of gas for my money-guzzling 1968 Pontiac or the cost of a Friday night date.
And neither Mom nor I could foresee that one day silver would be a key—though largely overlooked—component in our everyday lives, an essential element in every electronic device from cell phones and computer keyboards to flat screen TVs and solar panels.
Today, the silver in one of those 1964 Roosevelt dimes that Mom saved nearly 50 years ago is worth $1.75, a 17-fold premium on the coin’s face value. I still have some of those old coins. They were part of my inheritance after Mom died 17 years ago last March, with silver hair—and wisdom—just like the coins she collected off the lunch counter at the truck stop in Dale, Indiana.

“Kennedy Penny” ;)
Helping my mom go through some things, and she keeps hoping she’ll find a coin that will “pay for her new roof!” From what she told me, this one is very low mintage. She thinks the folks at Ad’s work (U.S. Rubber) had some of these made for his retirement party because he was an avid coin collector. Super thoughtful retirement present — and gives new meaning to the Kennedy Penny. (We’ll keep looking through her coins for the one that will pay for a new roof for her.)
