    what? i've had a longtime job where i have to count money and i like the idea. i just approve of different lengths but not both lengths and widths. the latter is horrid.

    i've had the luck to live abroad and travel a good deal recently and i can say that i enjoy Euros much more than dollars, and they are my favorite currency of all the different types i've used. the bills are pleasant colors, easy to differentiate (yes especially when drunk), and i really love 1 and 2 euro coins.

    i would love to see a shift in money here, though i'd prefer to keep at least one soft green bill around for posterity. the blue 100 is great!

    Some of the concepts are drastic, yet pretty cool looking.
    Opinions?
    Good idea? Bad?
    Should a redesigned paper currency resemble the old currency in some way, or is it fine/valuable to start completely fresh? Why or why not?
    The question is, or should be: why do we need it? It would require massive change in all kinds of systems to go to a format that has no resemblance to the current paper dollar. I can say right now, no vending machine is going to take those bills. It's a waste of money that we don't have and it accomplishes nothing meaningful. What argument is there for it, besides that the euro looks more "modern?" Seriously, who cares, and why?

    Well, you gotta pay someone to change all those vending machines, don't you?

    I've also heard that argument for switching to metric.

    Ah come on, dont be so square. You need to buy yourself in the EU currency as soon as possible, I dont know how long we can keep the secret regarding 75% of the states in Europe are insolvent

    Hehe, yep. Pay them with money so they can make new money.It makes me think people just say, "let's do this, it's a cool idea" without giving it any further thought. Really high level critical thinking there.

    I'm guessing some civil war general. Looks to me like Robert E Lee but I doubt they'd risk putting a southerner on there. Don't want to offend anybody.
