Best Buy Has Man Arrested for Using $2 Bills 1. Apr 8, 2005 dduardo Staff Emeritus Last edited by a moderator: Apr 21, 2017 2. Apr 8, 2005 Moonbear Staff Emeritus I'm having a hard time believing people don't know$2 bills exist. Doesn't everyone have one somewhere in their house just for the sake of having? Sometimes it just seems people are getting dumber by the day.

I used to...but i don't know what ever happened to it. Face it though, people are morons. Its not that they're getting dumber, more evidence of this is jsut coming to light.

Not much else to it.

I would go back to the same place and try to pass three-dollar bills.

Guy goes into the dollar store and tries to buy something with a $19 bill. Cashier blinks, then asks how he would like his change: 3 sixes, or two nines. 7. Apr 8, 2005 franznietzsche I bet you would. I lvoed the second story, i so wish i could do that. I would pay for everything in perforated sheets of two dollar bills, just to piss the troglodytes off. 8. Apr 8, 2005 franznietzsche Whoes dumber, the cashier or the crook? 9. Apr 8, 2005 Ivan Seeking Staff Emeritus I think we should have a pi-dollar bill. Make change for that sucker! 10. Apr 8, 2005 franznietzsche OOOOH!!! I want one!!! Too cool. I would love to torture cashiers with it. Especially the particulary moronic ones who have no clue what the value of pi is. It should just have a big pi where the number usually is. A picture of Euclid maybe? Or Poincaré? Even Riemann? 11. Apr 8, 2005 Moonbear Staff Emeritus As if the lines aren't slow enough with the cashiers who can't make change from money in integer amounts. 12. Apr 8, 2005 franznietzsche But i would be entertained. And by the laws of probability, there is a darn good chance the people behind me are just as ignorant as the cashier, in which case i really don't care. 13. Apr 8, 2005 dduardo Staff Emeritus Here is an even better idea: Pay with sheets of two dollar bills. You can purchase them here: http://www.moneyfactory.com/store/section.cfm/69/84 [Broken] Last edited by a moderator: May 2, 2017 14. Apr 8, 2005 franznietzsche Thats what the guy did. He just happened to get them perforated. Last edited by a moderator: May 2, 2017 15. Apr 8, 2005 learningphysics I didn't know about the$2 bill till I read this thread. I've been in the US since 1999 and have never come across one. At some point someone needs to be told about these things. Being unable to suck information out of the air is not stupidity.

In 99% of cultures, what you call being unable to suck information out the air, would be considered stupidity. You've obviously never read the articles of anthropologists, who like you, were also unable to suck information out of thin air.

It really isn't much more than once given public libraries (not to mention the internet), one should be marginally well-read. Above all this, this person was working as a cashier.

How does one suck information out of thin air?

It was your phrase, you tell me.

And besides, utter non-sequitur.

I think thats a little unfair to call stupidity. Its more of ignorance. I can see being in the US only 5 years not knowing what a $2 bill is. No one EVER uses one.... and no one ever talks about em. I think ive heard them mentioned on tv 1 time ever and if i didnt get$2 from my bank for my birthday (or wlel... they use to... cheap bastards! :P), i probably wouldnt have known they existed either.

Whats really funny though is this

"as stated by Baltimore County police spokesman Bill Toohey: "It's a sign that we're all a little nervous in the post-9/11 world.""

What does this have to do with 9/11!?!? "What?? Someone tried to pass a fake \$2 bill? Must be a terrorist buying a cd player for his next airplane hijacking!!!"
