    How will the rich folks wipe their butts? Has any one else here ever tried to use plastic for that? I'm here to tell you, it doesn't work.

    I haven't used plastic but one time I was hunting with no leaves around. Had to use twigs. Very unpleasant

    Just another way for "the man" to keep your spending more traceable by making debit/credit cards comparatively easier. And let's not forget what most plastics are made from...yup, good ole mooslim oil.
    :rolleyes:

    WOC- reference to enviro ads with turtle choking on plastic bags- floating bags look like jellyfish the turtle eats. Plastic bag, plastic money.

    If you are gonna feed turtles $100 bills, can I watch ? (Watch them throw a net over you and haul you away)

    There are rumors that with the new currency (going back many years) they can scan you and know exactly how much cash you are carrying. To the dollar. I do know for a fact that the currency counting machines can count the money without it being sorted. There is something in the individual bills that tells the machines what the bill is worth.

    By the way, our current US "paper" currency is actually cotton cloth and plastic, more or less.

    Choke on that Turtle!

    Back when i was a gaming tax auditor and was required to observe the soft count process, they told me the machines were visually scanning the outside of the bill in the big counting/sorting machines, of course that has been almost ten years. There was a bit of a race to see whose cage would find the first of the then "new" one hundred dollar bills, and it only took a couple of weeks, IIRC.
