    The notes are almost exactly the same size. Within a few millimetres of each other.

    $1-2 coins are still a bad idea as far as my experiences goes. Determining how much money you have on you a lot less intuitive. While once I lived in the US and anything under a dollar was $.XX and eligible to be retired to the likes of a giant coin vat/piggybank/what-have-you,
    You're used to your coins being for, all intents and purposes, worthless. That is why you hoard them. (This is precisely why the penny needs to go; prior to this year's abolition of the Canadian penny I knew people who would throw them out when they got them in change. They were so worthless these people considered them a nuisance!)

    loonies and toonies are giant coins that won't fit in your wallet and yet almost every single cash purchase results in getting them back in change... there's simply no paper $1 way around it--so you end up with more of your currency collecting in your cupholders than in your wallet.
    Why would you want a buck or two buried in your wallet? That's the beauty of the coins, they keep OUT of your wallet and ready to spend! That's the whole point of physical money.

    I think it's mathematically unreasonable to set the "coin plateu" to $2, of all things... while the most $1 bills one might accrue without being able to exchange for a larger currency is 4, coins you would need far more so to say paper money stops at $1 works well in practice.
    5 x $1 bills = $5 bill
    5 x $1 coins = $5 bill
    (1 x $1 coin) + (2 x $2 coins) = $5 bill

    ... The math works out pretty well to me. I could exchange three coins for a $5 instead of five one dollar bills. (I know there is such a thing as a US$2 bill, but I've never seen one.)

    You know, I'm not surprised you typed something like that. It's an interesting pattern.

    I'm not implying anything, I just find it interesting, is all.

    Don't pay attention to the fact that my tone of voice when I say interesting is the exact opposite of what it would be if I was actually interested... my brain just happens to process interest and disgust in the same way.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    She does it to me all the time, so... probably.

    /for the record, I find it endearing -- though I don't know the history of the Wind-Up Rex/Red Herring conflict, so maybe she meant it differently

    That was my first instinct, too.

    I couldn't give less of a shit. If RH is trying to "endear" herself to me, she can put me on ignore. You and Nicodemus are free to follow suit.

    I really hate the days when I want to sleep past the 5th alarm buzzer on my phone!
