    Every time this subject comes up I just want to remove all people from currency.

    Have a bald eagle on one... Independence Hall on another... the Declaration of Independence on yet another... and so on.

    That's not a bad idea, actually.


    I remember thinking, (especially as a little kid, before adoption of the Euro), that the U.S. had really boring, plain-Jane-looking money. Everywhere else, the bills weren't only different colors, but sizes, too. I remember searching for pinkish-colored bills when we'd go somewhere new, before I could officially declare whether I "liked" it there, or not.

    Aaaah.. Childhood.

    Something like this actually wouldn't be too bad. We should leave people to stamps and get them off our currency.

    Shouldn't obviously sexist bait threads be immediately flushed?

    No, no... Any bill you put a black person on would be worth only 3/5ths of its face value. In the name of "tradition".

    Before the Euro, the US dollar was the only one that was the same size and same color. I learned that when i graduated from college and went into banking. That's what made it so hard to spot counterfeit dollars.

    And I agree.....childhood. I miss those days.

    You act as if US bills are actually worth their face value... 3/5ths would be much better than what we actually have.

    We should put great American innovations on our currency.

    $1 -- McDonalds fries
    $5 -- Farmville
    $10 -- The Segway
    $20 -- Crocs
    $50 -- Agent Orange
    $100 -- The glory hole
