A Merging of Eras

A few months ago, while crying, drinking, and internet surfing, I dumped a rum and coke into my Bluetooth keyboard. I carefully removed each key, dried out what I could, but alas was unable to re-establish connection with my Mac Mini.

Tonight I finally gave up on the old keyboard and pulled the batteries out. In opening the battery compartment, I reached for the nearest coin on my desk and picked up - wait for it - a beautiful green 1898 copper Indian-head cent.

There is something oddly satisfying about pulling the batteries from a 2005 Bluetooth keyboard with an 1898 penny.
