A proposal
Mr jar,

I live in Canada and would like to purchase some of your weather.

I can offer a twonie for every 500 W/m2 of sunlight that you export to my backyard.

If it pleases you, do not export to the surrounding yards, I like how the snow looks on their trees.

If you're going to rent it on a per day basis then for a moderate sized yard you'll pay something like 24,000 $cdn for the cold months.

Pish posh.
You and your "numbers."

A small price to pay in exchange of foregoing the cost of gas for trucking all that sunlight up here.

Re: A proposal
Oh, how horrendous!

I spelt it incorrectly. I must seek the nearest correctional facility immediately!

Apparently the accepted string of alpha characters is "toonie."

Loonie on left ($1).
Toonie on right ($2).
(Don't worry about the reverse, it's just some old hag).

Once the snow kicks in here, they double as ice-cubes.

Our smallest plastic bill is $5.

You don't still use paper, do you? I hear that stuff is an uncivilized germ's paradise.
