Change is unethical!
    #1346193 - 03/02/03 08:04 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I propose only  whole numbers in commerce! I mean how much time do we lose as a society to make "change"? How many people go to 7/11 because of the convience only to wait for the cashier to make change for a cup of coffee? How much does it cost to make a penny, a dime, etc.? Smelting of metal is one of the worst industries in regards to the environment and green house gases. Does your dealer charge you $19.99 for your nugget? Is that penny for you or did they really take you for the other 99? How many more produce labels could we save with those two decimal places?
Give me a dollar's worth or nothing at all!  :wink:

Preach on man!! :smile: Down with change! I'll pay a few cents extra for that pack of gum or whatever :wink:

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I think there should be bills for change. Like the quarter dollar bill. Yah...I dont know why. But that's what I want.

Just as a thought, there are also reasons to prefer coins. Are the environmental costs of manufacturing coins actually greater than the costs of manufacturing the greater number of paper bills? I agree that metal smelting isn't wonderful for the environment, but neither is the manufacture of paper.

How about electronic money?

Happy mushrooming!

The printing of paper would not harm the environment if we used hemp paper. We should go to all the acres of land where trees were cut down. We should replant half the trees in most of these spots, and we should replace the rest of the land with hemp. Four times the paper that trees can provide in the same place. Not only that, but hemp grows back every year. If the paper industries switched to hemp, they would make millions because they would have unlimited resources. Cost of paper would go down. It could be used for clothing, too. Marijuana could change this world for the better in every aspect (if only we could find a way to harvest energy from it as well!)

You're KIDDING; right????
You've NEVER heard of HEMP OIL?????

We could, given a decade or so, COMPLETELY eliminate this countrys dependance on foreign oil with HEMP.

Check out Jack Herer's website; I don't have it right off just do a google search for "the emporer wears no clothes".

Thanks to all those whom responded to my first real thread here at the Shroomery! I was actually in part serious and in part kidding when this topic came up amoung my counterparts and myself but the topic took so many unexpected twists and turns and we spent so much time laughing, debating and such that I thought everyone here might enjoy the wrangle as much!
