Might as well talk about the importance of the USD.

Being an citizen of the United States, I use the currency system of the the  US Dollar. I know my blog is read by people from all over the world, but a good chunk (about 70%) of my readers hail from the U.S. So for that purpose, I'm going to use the USD. And I am fully aware there are other countries that use the USD. I can't think of any off the top of my head.

What can a US dollar get you?

In Kenya, that's 8 Cups of Milk. In Ghana, 87 Tablets of Penicillin. In the United States, 1/3 of a delicious, delicious Starbucks Tall Latte. Direct advertisement reference goes here.

While those stats are quite impressive and makes you think, it really only compares the US with 3rd world countries. But still, it does make you feel a little bit grateful about the importance of green Mr.Washington.

Now, let's do some scholarly things with a dollar. A sensible thing to would be to save a dollar a week, and a year later, you can buy like, 40 cheeseburgers, maaaaaan. Of course, you can spend it on incredibly cheap things, such as used books, or go to a dollar store. Maybe even give it to some random kid and just make his day.
Or even buy something healthy!

Then again, saving a dollar a week for a year and those sounds really tempting....

Well then. I'm out. I managed to clean my room, and stumble upon 5 quarters and a dime. That's $1.35. That is a value meal right there! Have a good day!
