    Awsome ideas for crayons. When I was little we collected old pieces of broken used crayons during the year . Near Mothers Day we collected a school milk carton bought at school ,rinse it out an dried. We then had a washer on a piece of waxed twine. At one end was the washer and on the other end a pensil that was laid across the milk carton. The teacher had a hotplate. She first melted the blue and poured about a 1/4 of carton. Then repeated the step after allowing the crayon to set with red , pink, orange,green, etc. After allowing it to set again we then peeled the carton off. What beautiful candles we each had to take home at the end of the year.

    As non-speculative use of bitcoins increases, this should stabilize.
    The fluctuations are definitely due to speculative trades.Even when
    an electronic transfer (like a wire transfer) method is
    used, the spender loses the ownership of the money first and
    then the target beneficiary is credited with the amount.
