Back in my day, kids, we had to cut the counters out . . . while walking uphill to school.
Yeah . . . and there was a chance that you wouldn't find the one counter you were looking for until you turned them all up because the backs were all a mysterious blank.

I see your point.

I guess a pedestrian just required a bit more effort on the part of Denis Loubet.
