There are only about a half dozen countries in the world that still use a paper bill worth as little as the US Dollar. Everybody is going to coins for piddly amounts. The largest coin in everyday circulationin the US is not large enough to buy ANYthing. Our coiins are worth so little, you have to carry a couple of pounds of coins to the lauhdromat.

Yeah...that's right! After the economy finishes collapsing, I intend on replacing my oil heater with a wood stove. I'll fuel it with paper money...who says the dollar is worthless!

Maybe next time they try, it might be wise to pull all the paper ones out of circulation at the same time.
