Perhaps you are just forgetting that the motto on the money is truncated. The full form is:

"In God we trust. All others pay cash." :rofl:

Seriously, on the deity debate, I don't think anyone is ever going to modify somebody else's convictions. It can lead to interesting discussions, though, as long as nobody takes it personally when the rest of the group vehemently disagrees with their convictions.

Allah may ask me to explain my misdeeds, sometime in the future. Or Great Juju may chastise me for killing all those snakes. I don't actually know, and in the absense of absolute, provable evidence I will continue as I am. I expect y'all will do the same.

Absolutely. But when I don't think people should scatter tacks in the roadway, either.

No, I'm not sure what that means, either. :oops:

If I knew what it meant, perhaps I could accuse someone of doing it. It seemed clever as I was writing it, then when I saw it, I realized that obscurity is not the same as wisdom. Something about grasshoppers, I think. Or maybe I just need some rest.

I don't think I've been guilty of tack-scattering. At least I hope not.

However, if I ever decided to scatter a roadway, it wouldn't be tacks. I know how to make caltrops. :rofl:

You're fine, Barfle, it's my ususal dullness. I simply missed the allusion.

I recieved a Guam Quarter in my change yesterday. I wasn't aware that Guam was going to be included in the "State Quarter" series, but apparently it is.

I guess, now that Mr. Obama has been elected, they've decided to include the rest of the 57 states he claimed to have visited?

So, including Guam I guess the remaining will be Puerto Rico, America Somoa, Canad and Mexico?? Have I missed any?
