California regulators recently warned a nonprofit organization related to the online "crypto-currency" Bitcoin that it may face charges for unlicensed money transmission. Misunderstanding may lie at the core of the warning, but the bleeding-edge experimental money has seen no end of legal troubles since it started becoming more well-known.

How can "money" "see" legal troubles?

How can a crypto-currency "shine"? How can it "lose shine"? How can it "hit a spotlight"?

The media are choking on their own self-aggrandizing metaphors, which is fine by me.

It's not as bad as their television at least, because with text you can at least ignore it easier and look at the actual information if there's any, in television and on the BBC in particular they've used horrible puns so much I've wanted to bash the screen in, it's really awful, much prefer getting my news in text form now Cheesy

I take it you're not a big fan of poetry or literature.
