    Gave a guy a dollar bill last night at work and he gave me a John Adams gold coin. Can you use those at stores and other places?

    Yep. It's a dollar. More presidents to come.

    I still have yet to see one of these.

    Problem is, every time they try a dollar coin, they don't make enough. People decide to collect them (which is retarded -- it's money, you dolt, there's a billion of them, and they aren't going to appreciate in value), and there's not enought for them to actually circulate. They need to FLOOD the market with them so that people get used to seeing them and using them.

    It's absurd that we're not using dollar coins yet. They're so much more convenient and cheaper to make. Apparently surveys show that most people don't want dollar bills taken out of circulation, but who gives a shit? They should do it anyway.

    I've got buckets of Susan B. Anthony dollars and a drawer packed with Dwights. And I feel darn good about it.

    See, now you're the problem. Know how much those SBAs are going to be worth 100 years from now? A DOLLAR!

    But they'll each be worth a foxy dollar.

    But even now, they're worth less and less every day against Canada's Avril Lavigne Looney.

    She sucks. Susan B. Anthony was more punk rock than Avril Lavigne.
  9. Sacagawea would kick the shit out of both.

    I'm quite close with a Native American, and she would agree.

    Yeah, you're quite close with a woman. Pull the other one.

    Aren't they doing them like state quarters? I have some George's and some Adams - I guess Jefferson would be next?
