Why is Aluminum Foil Shiny on One Side But Not the Other?

This initial foil is sent through still more rollers, several times, until it reaches the desired thinness. For the type of foil that is bright on one side and matte on the other, it is so thin that during some of the last rollings, two sheets of the thin foil must be placed together lest they tear or crimp during the final rolling of the sheets.

It's so the bruz can tell the boiz from the gurlz at night in limited light. One side is shiny, the other is not. Shiny side is coke (cocaine), dull side is skag (heroin).

Your heater is under your left leg and you're scratchin your nadz with your right hand until after the transaction is completed, and all exchanging is done with your left hand, if you're the driver.

A play is an 8 ball, a hit of coke and skag mixed and you're owed a free one for buying in volume, after all you just purchased $100 worth of merchandise. circa late 1970's SW Fla.
