At Thursday’s ECB press conference, Mario Draghi unveiled plans to introduce a new series of euro bank notes.
Europium is that very useful little rare earth metal that is used to make phosphors.
Europa is the symbol of that ghastly nightmare that oppresses us called the European Union.
The euro is the idiot currency promoted by the EU.
And yes, the designers of the banks notes of the euro have indeed used europium to create the phosphor with which the notes featuring Europa are larded.
There is, out there somewhere, a piece by said designers where they hug themselves with glee at having been able to do this.
