\$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.

4. I've consumed so much caffeine that I can feel my heart beating and my hands won't stop shaking... fucking easily available legal stimulants!

Whoa. I have never had that experience with RH.

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.
