Subject: GREAT AMERICAN GAS OUT! Last year on April 30,1999, a gas out was staged across Canada and the U.S. to bring the price of gas down, and it worked. It's time to do something about it again. This time, lets make it for three days instead of just one. The oil cartel decided to slow production to drive up gasoline prices. Lets see how many Canadian\American people we can get to ban together for a three day period in April, NOT TO BUY ANY GASOLINE,during those three days. LETS HAVE A GAS OUT. Do not buy any gasoline from APRIL 7, 2000, THROUGH APRIL 9, 2000. Buy what you need before the dates listed above, or after, but try not to buy any during the GAS OUT. If you want to help, just send this to everyone you know and ask them to do the same. We brought the prices down once before, and we can do it again! Come on North America lets stand together. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!! Even if you receive this 100 times keep passing it around, this way you know everyone is being informed and no one will forget!!!!!!!! -- Who was that masked man?

I don't know why it is that it never occurred to the English or Aussies to have a .25 denomination coin

Aussie bills are in my opinion the best design I have ever seen. Size is not a problem and as a matter of fact one of the cool design elements is that each bill is a different size so that if you are vision impaired (or just in a dark pub) you can tell by feel what denomination you have in your hand. The plastic paper used in Australia is, IMHO, cool but makes the money to slippery. I understand the US mint has tested and rejected the material because it does not wear any better than the current paper and costs three times as much. I agree about the way the Brit. Pound coins are made but the US will never make a thicker coin that way, because the banking and vending industries want to be able to use existing coin handling machines.

They have no clue as to where particular states are and think some areas or cities are states themselves. Surveys have shown that some people here ask the same type of things about different areas of their own country. I think it's appalling. TC
