Or slander's counter-mine.

Spend here your measure of time and treasure
And taste the treats of Penmaen Pool.

As if at pain; for it is pain, to think

Of compensating act and counter-act
Defeat and counterfeit, makes up, in fact
My ablest time.

Another example is IRAS 18151 –1208 in which the H2 jet appears to have adequate momentum to power the observed CO flow ( Beuther et al., 2002a; Davis et al., 2004). A counter example may be the Ceph A HW2 outflow because the momentum rate in the HCO + outflow is 20 times larger than that of the observed ionized jet.
