Assuming a "dime" equals $US 0.1, at the current exchange rate, about 4 Oz Bucks.

See? When the Romans were in charge you could buy a Savior for that much.

Well, lemme check my wallet...

I'll give you 4 goldies. Or two twos. Or one two and two ones.

Or a crispy, new, plastic fiver. Keep the change, and I just out-bid your assassin.

I find it interesting that the new plastic fiver has bacilli swimming up the vertical band.

Yeah. I think they're supposed to be Banksia flowers. I just worked in the QA ink lab. Don't blame the design on me. I just made sure the pink was the right measure of pink.

That's why washing your hands is so important. Those bacilli are not printed on the bill. Those are the real deadly parasites crawling onto the bill from Major's fingers. :shock:

Well, one time I ran outta TP, and the prototype was the only thing in my pocket... So, uh... There you go.

It looks to me more like a certain exotic herb.

Damn! They were some interesting creatures... I wish they were still alive. I'd add them to my bug collection. You know they had silicon quartz crystal eyes? How does biology do that? We've lost some interesting genetic information along the way. And such a successful creature just suddenly disappeared!

That would be like ANTS suddenly going extinct!
