    WHO would you call? $1 is really not enough to do anything on an ongoing basis. I figure outside of placing a call, it is worth little more than lunch.

    What a coincidence. I have a dollar! I really, do - I'm not lyin'.

    I'm going to buy coffee on the road tomorrow with it. I'm such an caffeine aholic. Give me money and I just buy caffeine with it. What a waste.

    I'd use it to open one of those vacuum-sealed jars of paté, where you have to wedge a thick coin under the lid and twist it (they do have $1 coins, don't they? Or is it notes only? In which case you can't even do that ).

      You can do that free, ya know. Turn the jar over and knock one edge (top of the lid right where it meets the side of the lid on the counter top - not hard enough to break it, just a thump to break the vacuum seal). Then use your buck for something more fun.

      For the US, the latest $1 coins were a FARSE and are now used as so much garbage on things like the post office vending machines. Too many mistoke them for quarters, etc... The OLDER ones were made of silver and today are often worth like $2+ over spot, on up. Spot TODAY is about $18.20, BTW one site claims the most valuable silver coin, at least in morgans is only worth $503K USD, but I am pretty sure there is one that is in the tens of millions.

      But why not use a quarter?

        What a waste, nonsence, just as long as you buy a cake to go with it!


        $1, hmmm, l would wait til l have several and probably spend it on an icecream, about the only thing that keeps me sane in this heat!



        PS the humidity is between 50 - 90% with 30 digree days, or more at the moment!

    LOL Yukon -- the sig just under that video makes a pretty hilarious post.

    That is good info, too. Now the buck can go to the tuna instead of a can opener.

      AT THIS TIME!?!?!?!? Do you realize that a PENNY used to REALLY have value!?!?!?!? To give you an idea, as far back as I could check things, which was NOT back to the beginning, a dollar used to be worth about $50 in todays money. REALIZE though, that it was then enough to buy over 2 ounces of gold. By THAT measure, a dollar was worth about $2500! AH, GOOD OLD INFLATION! As for the 50 times? ONE aberration I could not account for is that the average person used to be able to buy things like milk at a store.

      TODAY, you really CAN'T buy milk at a store, in the US! Oh SURE, you go in, and get milk! SURE, you pay, and you get milk. But the GOVERNMENT uses your TAX dollars to SUBSIDIZE the milk. We may NEVER know the true cost! OH, and wages? SAME THING! Back then, if you made $2000, in your job, you got $2000. TODAY, if you make $2000, in your job, you will get LESS!

        I'd buy 3 apples, then I'd try and peel the skin off each one in one go so it's all one long bit. That would take a while with a blunt edged stone, then I could use the peel to make little pictures on the floor.

        See, I'm a genius. Hours of fun for a dollar...and a light meal too.

        Do I win a prize?

          If I lived right near a casino I could have 2 - 40 cent bets, or 3-30 cent bets or 2-50 cent bets. You never know, you might get lucky.

    I would pay a wino the dollar to engage Richard in a tickle fight while he's playing with his apples.

    If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

      Yes but I'd throw him off the scent by throwing my emergency brandy bottle as far away in the opposite direction as possible.

      I'm well aware, somewhere out there, probably up a tree near my office, you're waiting with lots of paper bags and a pin. Now I'm on my guard Dan.

      WATCH THOSE SHOELACES. I HAVE CONTACTS IN OHIO.

    OR....


    I'd buy Claude Whitacre's soul from its current owner, Johann Sebastian Riccar. I'd make sure I paid what it's worth. With the change left over, I'd buy 99 pieces of penny candy.
