Please refrain from refrain from reverting to the archain imperial
system of weights and measures, base 10 is so much easier to work
True. It works that way with money also. 100 pennies equals a dollar.
Therefore $1.57 equals one hundred and fiftyseven cents. Now if we can only
get some of these other nations to do the same.
15 million lira? 2 pounds 4 pennies?
However, in a world of semi-literates, how come the U.S. still doesn't place
the numeric value on the coin? We write out the number: Quarter dollar,
One dime, One cent.
Oh Well. Sorry to have strayed onto non-TFT topics.
