Witchcraft! No other explanation.

See - the world is flat. If it were round these coins would just roll to one side or the other :wink:

Actually, those are 5 yen coins the upright coins are all standing on (in). They have round holes, rather than square. The toothpick looks to be going through 5 yen coins as well. (I first assumed they were 50s). All the coins appear to be Japanese except the upright one that says “5”. I don’t recognize it.

I have begun buying cyanoacrylate adhesive that comes with a syringe adaptor ( for really small amounts).
