There were also half cent, two cent and three cent pieces, but they are obsolete. Two dollar bills are mostly a novelty and are so seldom used that plenty of people don't know they exist. According to Google results, there haven't been any printed in almost 1.5 decades.

Mr. Roy. There are also $2 dollar bills, in case you were wondering....

Yes, at least in the USA, no longer in Canada (actually, no $1 bills here either, our lowest bill now is $5). But they are $2 bills, not $1 dollar bills, which is what the meme refers to. $2 is not $1, it can say it is $1, but it is not. And $1 is not $2, even if it wants to be, it is not. :)

Speaking of money...

So US income tax is non-progressive? ???

The US uses a progressive tax system, but NiteHackr has the facts and the United States constitution.

raynebc: I really don't understand why you even bother to post in here about politics. We understand the truth. Our opinions are based on the facts and on the United States constitution. Other opinions seem only based on emotions and deeply ingrained hatred, which tends to blind people from the facts, sadly.

Just a heads up, Assassin's Creed Syndicate and Faeria are now free on the Epic Games Store. I don't know anything about the games, but can't beat the price.

Looks like a good game, here's a video someone did of it a few years back.

Can't we all just love each other?

Sexually?

I just tried installing a really old, 8bit version of my Deluxe Pacman 1 game onto Windows 10 just for shits and giggles. It never looked good on Windows 7 as Windows 7 always messed up the VGA palette. But now it actually looks great on Windows 10, runs fine... well... in Windowed mode, it won't run in fullscreen mode, but I was surprised at this.

I was also surprised at how many changes my game went through I forgot about! I installed a couple old versions. My old, options menu sucked! Kind of kewl anyhow. The screenshot is from 1.32. v1.30 had problems, ran super slow for some reason, but the palette was fine.

Edit: scratch that... this may not have been 8bit now that I think about it *slaps forehead*, now I'll have to try out a version I KNOW is 8bit to test.

Tested out an older 8bit version and it looked fine (except a teeny problem on the title screen). Ran fine, but crashed at one point. Ah well... not important. There does seem to be an improvement with less palette corruption now. <shrug> it's after 3am and I am bored. L.O.L.

That's not inclusive of asexuals like me! :(

The future is now, old man!

If it's not overly clear, I'm being sarcastic about the inclusiveness of your comment. I'm also making a reference to Malcome in the Middle.

After all, I'm an SJW and I may actually say those things! :P

I got, and loved, that reference.

For the record, Elizabeth Warren is 1/32 Native Indian. No, that's not much, but it's still true.

Second, Hillary is laughing her ass off at you and Roger Stone.

An Indian is someone born in India. A native is someone who was born here. I am a native Canadian, as was my father, and his father before him etc. What's in your blood makes no difference. If you're black and born here, you're native. if you're Chinese and born here, you're native. I don't belong anywhere else and refuse to be treated as if I do.

Warren isn't 1/32 Native American. She's a full-blooded lying politician though.

Do you get your news exclusively from the clinton news network? That's been thoroughly disproved and she had to apologize. Native American citizenship isn't [just] by genetics. You're not a member of a tribe just because you have their DNA. You have to be... a member.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/19/us/politics/elizabeth-warren-native-american.html

And what does 1/32 DNA have to do with making policies that actually help people. ??? Identity politics needs to die. And is.

Hair is for the gendered. You are a future person. Become future race.

I'm sure mice traps work the same regardless of the economic system in place, why wouldn't they? Am I missing something? ???
