We Need an 'Ibles Currency. Answered

most large bands of people have their own currency; E.G.: Countries "unions" of nations Disneyland pirates (maybe) ect. as a large band of internationally based do-ers, we need a currency to tie us together... this could be sold as instructables merchandise, used as a prize, or even used for inter-instructables transactions... I've been playing with Galvanic etchng, and this would only take two plates for each side. anyway, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Currency would lead to rumors, which would cause suspicion, then corruption, then conflict, then chaos, then ultimately Collapse. I'd prefer to keep our futuristic peace economy, where we pay with compliments and pluses and punish by flaming and name calling and yo mama! Aaand, in a place where lots of people talk about hacks, whose to say people wont try to hack Instructables to get points, like a recently commented little boy who stole 30 something million yen or something. Oooor, the Instructables crew would become rich cuz everyones honest, and everyone lives happily ever after. I would look forward to seeing Eric wearing a tall hat on the $5 dollar Instructabill ( very original)

Shame on you! Eric on a 1 dollar bill?!? Put him on a 100!!! Oh, and we should have coins too... Or You can use some kind of program to open that up into, and put the back of the bill next to it, and make it actual size. Now, when you are done, make sure that the front (or back) of the bill is the actual size of a real bill. Print it out and cut the front and back out. DO NOT SEPERATE THEM. Fold it in half so that it's not a plain front of a dollar bill with a white back.

So gravity went completely unnoticed until newton? ;-) Besides, there's one important thing Newton invented that you didn't mention, by which all the others pale in comparison, The Calculus.

I remember an artist a few years back who made red dollar bills with some message or another on them, and got arrested for counterfeiting several times... the interesting thing is that his art was valuable enough that he gave them as tips at restaurants... so I guess he was counterfeiting, in a way. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) keep leaving $1,000,000 bill tracts at my register... they're legal, because they are 125% of the size of a real bill (and there isn't a million dollar bill)... IANAL, but as long as these were made either smaller than 75% or larger than 125% or bill size, there shouldn't be a problem.

I can't find a reference, but I'm sure there was an artist who drew money by hand. It was clearly hand-drawn, but people still accepted them in payment for meals etc, even when they watched him draw them. Some people even made change.

He wasn't guilty of a crime, because (in the UK anyway), anything that a vendor knowingly accepts as payment for goods or services is automatically legal tender for that transaction. On the other hand, vendors also have the right to refuse forms of payment they do not wish to accept (which causes problems when tourists end up in England with Bank of Scotland or Bank of Ireland banknotes - shops can accept them or turn them down on a whim.

J. S. G. Boggs; see also In Boggs We Trust.

"Any person who gets a Boggs note can usually sell it for much more than its face value: a $10 Boggs note may be worth more than $1000. Any person who knows about Boggs is likely to accept a Boggs note; for this reason, Boggs prefers to spend his art with people who are unfamiliar with his work. He likes people to make a conscious choice to accept art instead of money, and their knowing how much money his art is actually worth spoils it."
