"Thrifted This T-Shirt And I Need Help Identifying What It Says Or Any Information About It"

"Why Is There A Fingerprint On This Penny? It’s Embedded In And Is Worn Down Noticeably In That Area"

Answer:  "Some people have particularly corrosive skin oils. I used to work in a machine shop, and we called those people, "rusters," and you never let them touch your tools. Rusters don't just rust steel, they also corrode brass, copper, bronze, aluminum, zink, etc. If a ruster used your parallels or square and you didn't clean and oil it right away, the rusted fingerprints etched into the steel would show up within a few hours. I'm guessing a ruster touched that penny at some point, after which is was left untouched for an extended period of time"

#3 Most "rusters" are native to Africa. Their offensive skin acridity contributes to this undesirable phenomena. It's a harsh defense mechanism when confronted with what to them is advanced technology, like hand tools not made of stone, and the more evolved human.
