Now I can go into any store and buy a .99 chocolate bar with a hundred dollar bill.

No, i'm not an ass like that.. but a couple times i've been paid by my boss with only 50's and wanted to get something to eat.. what do you expect me to do? I remember one time all I had was a $100 bill and I spent three and a half hours looking for somewhere to change it.. dead serious, nobody would take it anywhere (alot of places even had signs out front saying they wouldn't accept 50's or 100's due to counterfeit). But thank you Zellers. (They still made me buy something though .)

That reminds me of something I posted about on my forums... I had been up for 14 hours staring at black and white code, so my eyes were horrid

I haven't had a haircut in a while, so I guess im pulling that stoner look with the bloodshot eyes and shit.

I went in walmart and the cashier, old woman, checked my 5 dollar bill.

...
Me: "You're checking a 5 dollar bill?"
Her: "We're supposed to check them all"
Me: "No you aren't"
Her: "Ive seen counterfeit tens before"
Me: "This is a five"
Me: "see, it's real.. but if i ever do start counterfeiting, ill make sure to stay away from you"

yeah, i'm back.

The Only thing that is somewhat good at McD's here in the Netherlands is their coffee.

low price, a decent fill and it's hot.

but everybody with children in the age up to 8-10 years knows he/she has to spend time there, your kids demand it.

I don't think they check anything under a 50 here.

I don't think anyone checks money around here...Some places won't even accept things above $50, but otherwise no one really seems to care...

LMAO.. "this is a five". Stuff like that makes me laugh because I talk just like that.

I also had my mom pass me a fake $10 bill once.

She swore she didn't know it was fake.

Another reason why sales tax is better than income tax...

I guess you have to check american money for counterfeit. It looks like monopoly money. Surely you can just photocopy that shit. Australian money is plastic and has shiny stuff and see through bits and microprint and doohickeys and whatsits. I've never seen anyone in australia check money for counterfeit. Even if I've accidentally torn it and stitched it together with tape.

The minimum wage bitches here always struggle when i ask for stuff in australian english. Cuz its all called by the american names here even though we aren't part of america (last time i checked). I ask for pancakes instead of hotcakes, tomato sauce instead of ketchup, and chips instead of fries. They always look confused....despite the fact that they too are australians. Last time I checked they didn't import american teenagers to work there lol.

Face it.. you just can't fake our money.

The U.S. should really come out with the best counterfeit technology. I know they have the new designs.. but even still. Seeing as how they are such a big target for couterfeit, you'd think they'd do everything possible to keep currency from being reproduced...

Nobody WANTS to counterfeit Canadian money, though.

If you would have said that a few years back, I would've agreed..

But US$1 = CAN$0.82

Definately worth it these days...

See the nice graph. If it's on a graph, it's gotta be relevant.

Don't worry, the US dollar will come out of its recession eventually, and leave yours in the dust again...
