    Lol
    lol love your sarcasm but that seems about right. I remember the Mars three musketeers bar called a giant bar now. 25 cents now over a dollar miss those days being a kid only things to worry about homework cleaning my room and eating my veggies and yuck liver when my mom served it my dad's favorite I would drown it in ketchup my brother was anemic and fall asleep to avoid it. My sisters ad I would be like how lucky he was to get away without having to eat liver. Still hate it but I probably would eat it with hot peppers r hotsauce.

    Lol, yeah it getting bad but we're not there yet but probably will be one day. Like the British pound five dollars two and a half, then one fifty latest one thirty nine. Considering back in the 1800s you took your note to a bank for one pound sterling. Bet every time it got devaluated someone cried sitting on a stack of old notes. Although their probably worth more as collector notes. Wish my grandma had saved a bunch of the Hawaiian war dollars worth a lot these days. They were that worried the Japanese would invade I don't think it could happen with the thousands of troops and the huge build up in defenses after Pearl Harbor. I read something interesting while the b17s and the Japanese strike force were all homing in on Honolulu radio so was a flight of daughtless bombers doing training following the same radio transmissions launched from enterprise they flew right into the raid as well. I have never heard or seen mention of that before.
