Keep them, they're still money, even if it's worth less.

Besides, would you prefer if all prices were rounded up to the nearest nickel?

If nobody is carrying "cash" and the card are connected to their eye or their fingerprint why mug somebody? Same for buying drugs on the street. It might go behind closed doors, but it it'll be hard to conduct "bidness" on the corner.


No, you'll just see an increase in violent crimes. People will get a gun in the back and be "escorted" to the ATM and asked to make a big withdrawl or die.

You're less likely to get hurt it you just hand them your cash and let them run.

Well, the only reason ppl sell stuff by 99's is because it looks cheaper than the whole number. I say get rid of them and save our gov some money.

Hell, I use the take a penny leave a penny thing all the time...I hate carrying around change. I leave nickels at times, too.

There won't be any cash. Therefore there won't be any ATMs and you never need to make a withdrawl. Theft will be much less violent, it will be identity theft instead of armed robbery.

I take all of my change and put it into a big Bud Light bottle bank at the end of the day. When I go to Cancun each year, I just cash it in right before I leave and use that $$ while I'm there. ;-D
