the year is 2022.  government surveillance is at an all time high.  in an effort to keep a minimum degree of privacy, everyone starts using typewriters again.  typewriter sales go through the roof and i make a fortune because i invested heavily in typewriter stock in 2021

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Something I realised, after having to help many international tourists count out their change, is that American coins don’t actually have the number value on them??? Like no wonder all these poor tourists are so confused

it just fucking says one “dime”

what the fuck is a dime

how much is it worth

whose idea was this

oh my god i never even realized that what the hell we all just sort of know what they’re worth through some sixth sense bullshit

Quarter makes sense because it’s worth a quarter of a dollar.
Penny got is name from the German pfenning, which used to be the smallest of the English silver coins. When it made it’s way over here they switched to copper and made it smaller and it just evolved into the “penny”

Nickels have a dumb story because they used to be .03 and also made of nickel and called “nicks” but something something alloys, something something silver half dimes? Then it became .05 in like the 1800s.

Dimes were once called disme (pronounced to rhyme with gleam) because disme means one tenth. The s got dropped somewhere along the way and people started to read it as it’s written (tall vowel when ending an e, creating the ai sound you hear when you say dime).

Also dollar comes from the Spanish Thaler which came from this crazy german word I can’t spell but basically it was this silver coin minted in Germany. Any way spain struck coins from the German silver ones and when they came to america they became a widely used currency in the colonial states so we ended up calling ours the “dollar” because people suck at pronouncing things.

Anyway there ya go.
