April 26 of this year, when I bought a 250 Virago, showroom floor condition with 5000 miles, for $1500, which is light by at least 2 to 1. It listed on Craig's at 7 PM, I had it secured by 8 PM, and returned to pay it off as soon as the banks opened.

I am on the road with the bike right now, 2200 miles down out of a 4000 mile trip.

Big fun.

dmars: Cash is dumb. I haven't actually carried money in my wallet for a long time now.

Yeah, it's so much better if not only your bank but every merchant can track your purchase history and target you for marketing, and control your credit accordingly, and your insurance company can get in on it and predict when things that affect your risk rating are happening in your life.

Or, you know, maybe how you live is none of their farking business.

CaptainBeer: I'm a bartender in NYC. I get 'em all the time. They are then used to buy... things of an expensive nature.

True, cigarette taxes have gone up lately.

They make great gifts. I have two in my dresser drawer in case I'm ever low on cash. I only know that because last month I had a c-note and I thought, I should keep this in my dresser in case I'm ever low on cash. I went to do that and was surprised to see there was already one there.
My dad's uncle died in 1980. He had a $1000 bill tucked in his wallet.

Cybernetic: People still use cash?

People still can't comprehend that cash is just as convenient as a debit card? That commercial where the guy slows everyone down by pulling out cash at the register is complete bullshiat. Any cashier worth their salt will work through a cash transaction quicker than an electronic one. There's latency in the approval of the transaction, latency in the customer knowing how to operate the keypad, latency in the receipt printer...You hand a half-decent cashier a bill, they type in amount, boom drawer opens, receipt prints, they swiftly provide correct change, and you're out the door. Watch grandma come up and have to swipe 5 times because she keeps hitting "NO" on "do you approve this amount?"...then watch the next 50 grandma's do this all damn day long.

Yesterday, I used nine of them to buy a 1976 Plymouth Gran Fury ex-Florida highway patrol car. Original cop package car with the 440 engine. Bit rough looking, but runs great. Trying to decide if I want to restore it to original FHP livery or make a bluesmobile clone out of it. Either way, its still somehow managed to retain its original black and white paint and hasn't been butchered outside of a little rust and a sun-baked interior.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Last month. I pay rent in hundreds. Five of them.

Imagining what I'd get for 500 dollar rent in somewhat frightening.

Mr_Ectomy: End of April. I'm still getting used to the new polymer bills. See through money? SOooOOOOo futuristical!

That's a cute $10 bill you have there.

Just kidding. I love Canada, but it's just fun to tease. I know your dollars should in all actuality be worth more than ours based on how much more awesome Canada is. The being further north thing is a problem though. Canada needs to overlay itself onto the US and flush out all the crazies in the process.

How is that any different than any other thread?

You wish you were a country? That's some lofty goals.

I'm not sure I ever have, come to think of it. Even before the everything-plastic era, I always kind of disliked carrying cash.
