Dimes suck

  • Dime Reasons why dimes suck:
    Dollars are made up of Quarters. Quarters are made up of Nickels. Nickels are made up of Pennies. There is no place for Dimes in this system. A Quarter can not be divided up into Dimes unless you go through the trouble of cutting a Dime perfectly in half. Most establishments lack the resources to accomplish this for you when giving you your change.
  •  Dimes have no purpose in the division of money. A hard-working Nickel carries the value of 5 Pennies, but the lazy Dime gets away with doing only twice the work of the Nickel - All while the Quarter effortlessly pulls the weight of 5 Nickels that the Dime should be pulling.
  • The Dime can't even get E Pluribus Unim right. I don't need to look it up to know that E Pluribus Unim means "The Many Are One." It's written on all our money except the Dime. Instead, if you look at a Dime you will see "Eplu Rib Usu Num." Now my Latin isn't the greatest, but I'm fairly certain that doesn't mean anything.
  • The March of Dimes may have cured Polio, but a march of Quarters would have cured it 250% faster.

    Dimes have no place in society. Please collect all the Dimes you can find and send them to me so I can use them to speak out against Dimes. Every Dime you send me will be used for my tireless quest to have Dimes discontinued, rounded up and destroyed. Do not weep for the Dimes. They are devil beings that deserve no mercy.

"Wave-and-Pay" credit cards are the future

 Buyers are likely to charge more and charge more frequently when new "contactless" credit cards start hitting mailboxes next month.

The cards — which are "waved" near card readers instead of swiped and signed — move customers through checkout lines faster. And because buyers aren't reaching into their pockets for cash, they may spend more.
