From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Bloodwood \Blood"wood\, noun (Bot.) A tree having the wood or the sap of the color of blood.

Note: Norfolk Island bloodwood is a euphorbiaceous tree ({Baloghia lucida}), from which the sap is collected for use as a plant. Various other trees have the name, chiefly on account of the color of the wood, as {Gordonia H[ae]matoxylon} of Jamaica, and several species of Australian {Eucalyptus}; also the true logwood ({ H[ae]matoxylon campechianum}).

From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Eucalyptus \Eu'ca*lyp"tus\, noun [NL., from Gr. e'y^ well, good + ? covered. The buds of Eucalyptus have a hemispherical or conical covering, which falls off at anthesis.] (Bot.) A myrtaceous genus of trees, mostly Australian. Many of them grow to an immense height, one or two species exceeding the height even of the California Sequoia.

Syn: eucalyptus tree, gum tree, eucalypt.

Note: They have rigid, entire leaves with one edge turned toward the zenith. Most of them secrete resinous gums, whence they called {gum trees}, and their timber is of great value. {Eucalyptus Globulus} is the blue gum; {E. gigantea}, the stringy bark: {E. amygdalina}, the peppermint tree. {E. Gunnii}, the Tasmanian cider tree, yields a refreshing drink from wounds made in the bark in the spring. Other species yield oils, tars, acids, dyes and tans. It is said that miasmatic valleys in Algeria and Portugal, and a part of the unhealthy Roman Campagna, have been made more salubrious by planting groves of these trees.

I don't want Uncle Sam having my SIM Card private keys.

My banking ideas may have caught the attention of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. I like my banking to be FREE and REAL TIME and PRIVATE. I have a proposal for how the central bank could more effectively issue credit directly to the consumers through a totally automated PRIVATE NONPROFIT. We don't need for-profit banks to administer our central bank credit. We can automate that task completely. Say, "Thank you" to the scientific community. We don't need to create new money as debt. That model was corrupt and inefficient. It was a system of slavery. Consumers were owned outright by the central banks. They called it "Sovereign Debt." Have you ever heard of fractional reserve banking? Slavery by con men. That's not what we're all about around here. We are, fundamentally, advanced technologists. We can design happier societies than that. That system sucked for the average citizens. Our systems work without the intentional generation of debt as a revenue model. We are all about a smarter banking system that serves the PUBLIC INTEREST better than those financed with debt.
