Ewwww - I don't want to imagine what my piggy bank would smell like...

I may be a bit slow and believe everything you say, but the bit of the universe that is responsible for equilibriliumnum made sure I got a visitor today, eric! Neener neener! ;)

I agree that the currency in the USA is boring looking. Currently in California a loaf of whole wheat bread costs $3.00 to $5.00 and a 5lb. bag of white sugar is just under $2.00.


Nice to meet you jaznbonnie, we share a currency
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

It took me ages to get the hang of the fact that the 5c coin is bigger than the 10c coin. It would help if they were marked rather than having "Dime" and "Nickel" on them. :D

you get used to it. :lol: though i see what you mean. it is kind of odd that the higher piece is smaller and thinner. (even more then the penny)

Especially since our 5p coin is about the size of a Dime and our 10p coin is the size of a Quarter. :lol:

...says the man who comes from a country where the 20p coin is smaller than both the 10 and 2p coins and the 5p is smaller than everything else, including the 1 and 2p. ;)

Had my english oral exam today and it was horrible, but I so had to think about this thread. My task was to reflect on three images: one with Forints on it, one with Euro's and one with a distributing machine... The horrible thing was that I could've talked about lots of things concerning money and economics and this kind of stuff, having studied it for 5 years, but I only know the terms in French :P And I was so blocked I couldn't even come up with words like offer and demand (which is the same in French) :roll:
