    "They're nothing like Canadian bills last I've checked, w/ the holograms and colour shifting ink and scratch-off nubs and watermarks etc."

    Well, nothing like them except for the fact that our bills have holograms, color shifting inc, watermarks, tamper resistant fibers, etc.

    HAHAHAHAHA you're such a douche.
     
  3. I've got money stacks bigger than stewacide
     
  4. also re: phaseing out the penny, the US mint has been trying for years to phase out the dollar bill but doesn't have the balls to stop printing them to push people to the coins... watch them 'phase out' the penny while continueing to make them <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  5. Yeah, finally as of like TEN FVCKING YEARS AGO! And many of these security features were on there since BEFORE.

    Why don't you just say, "OK, I'm an idiot. I don't think before I type. I assume shit without actually finding out if it's true"
     
  6. Australia = best currency in the world. No cents or 2 cents for at least a decade, paper notes.

    You've never seen American currency.
     
  11. Your ideas would be/are welcome among many people up here. Most likely we'll see a 5 dollar coin in my/our lifetime.
     
  12. No, as change gets worth more it gets smaller ..the 50 cent coin is such a hassle to have on you its huge ,...and that 2 dollar piece is tiny...

    the only nice thing about Oz money is the bills when they get wet ...
     
  13. Keep 'em, I use them to level furniture
     
  14. BOOM
     
  15. Well don't speak too soon, because we all know where the canadian dollar will be in a little while.
     
  16. 5c is the smallest we have, I'm not sure when that came into practise. For some reason it gives me great satisfaction to get $20.02 worth of petrol.
     
  17. god damn is stewacide ever an idiot
     
  18.  
  19. y'know, thats like saying "goddamn humans breathe air"
     
  20. YES! I don't know how you guys can stand em. We pissed em off like a decade ago and people hate carrying five cent pieces (dime for you Amerikans) here in Aus. Crap, I was in the US for 6 weeks and pennies were pissing me off on the second day.
     
  21. Stewicide should be abolished.
     
  22. i thought a dime was 10c?
     
  23. If you're going to be condescending towards Ameri"k"ans at least be correct. Dime = 10 cents.
     
  24. they are annoying.
     
  25. penny = 1
    nickel = 5
    dime = 10
    quarter = 25
