1-13. insure


About the illustration
It’s about money again so I had a lot of trouble trying to think of how to illustrate my idea.

So this is my interpretation, and it’s of dirty money, or money obtained through illegal means. A knife pierces through a stack of bills and blood oozes from it. I was thinking of an infamous question, “Your money or your life?” But this can also apply to whether money is of more importance to someone else’s life. Thus, it can be used for robbery, kidnapping, etc.

Page 421, entry 7: 
insure v.tr. 1 (often foll. by against; also absol.) secure the payment of a sum of money in the event of loss or damage to (property, life, a person, etc.) by regular payments or premiums (insured the house for £100,000; we have insured against flood damage). 2 (of the owner of a property, an insurance company, etc.) secure the payment of (a sum of money) in this way. 3 (usu. foll. by against) provide for (a possible contingency) (insured themselves against the rain by taking umbrellas). 4 US = ENSURE. [Middle English variant of ENSURE] insurable adj.

Personal opinion (about the entry)
I lack personal opinions these days.

The last entry will be on Sunday! :D

    to me, its like taking a person hostage to ensure you get your ransom.

    in other words, that hostage is your insurance.

    To renchan,

    It’s called stereotyping ;D I didn’t want to do green notes, but if I did some other coloured notes, no one will know they’re money :/ So yeah.

    To renchan,

    Like who? It’d be easy to replace the notes with someone else’s face ;D And you want me to get into trouble, don’t you? ;D
