Every time I get one of those Sacagewea coins as change, mostly from some sort of vending machine, it always gives me a few seconds pause before I remember that it's actual real money.

I bought stamps from a vending machine one time and only had a $20. I got like 15 of those Sacagewea dollars back. plain.gif

After they decide that, plus age, maybe height, then they can start putting together a list of candidates. Looking forward to it!

What about gender?

Good point.

So there is a transsexual who does MMA fighting as a woman (against other women), by the name of "Fallon Fox"?



Apparently that is...her...on the right.

It's always been weirdly ironic that Jackson is on one of the most widely circulated US bills. Doubly ironic that Hamilton gets the boot and Jackson stays.

Thanks.

What good are they if they don't get you shit at the gentleman's club?

That's actually not a bad joke.

Ah man, this is a great strategy. I mean, if Caitlyn Jenner was younger she could crush the women's decathlon (is there a women's decathlon?)

Of course, the Chinese will get wind of this and start forcing their second tier male athletes to all get gender reassignment...

They do the heptathlon.

When it's said that Jackson was against "paper" money, I'm pretty sure this meant that he was against money that only existed on paper (i.e., not backed by gold (or maybe silver too)), not that he was necessarily against money being physically made of paper.

He was also generally against the US Central Bank, which is kind of essential for a government paper money system of any backing.

That's really not true. They got rid of the central bank some time later and it stayed gone for the better part of a century.

I am really not an expert on the history of it all, but my recollection is that Jackson wasn't against paper money or banks, per se, just against fiat currency.

Andy Kaufmann was ahead of his time.

Anyway, you say Fallon is a transexual, right? That means his/her Johnson and nuts have been whacked off, correct? I wonder if they check on this.

Seriously, it's ridiculous if someone could just identify as a woman and then fight women ( without doing the transex thing ). Mike Tyson would be a hell of a draw as a female.

This is correct. He was against fiat currency, but he was against the central bank because he felt it helped the rich and politically connected over the common man.
