I had heard about the new 10. Supposedly they were going to have some color variations. Okay no big deal the other changes wern’t to bad.
But now I hold a crisp shiny new 10 dollar bill. It’s not a color variation, It’s freakin Orange. What are we now, some backwater nation with Monopoly money? This country was build on greenbacks not this crap. It’s the final sign of the end of times, when Uncle Sam gives up good strong manly green dollars for wussy-ass pumpkin money.
Seriously, what is the problem with being able to identify a bill by just glancing at it, without having to figure out which president you’re looking at or looking for the numbers? I glance in my wallet and I can (theoretically) see that I have fives, tens, twenties, fifties, and hundreds in there just from the colours. For a lazy nation, you guys sure are making something easy more difficult than it has to be.
Are the new 10s that bad? I’m out of the country for a while and haven’t seen one myself. When the 20 got its color a few years back, I publically stated I wouldn’t use them, ever. Then I saw one, and it wasn’t too bad. I thought it was supposed to be peach and pink, but it was still basically green. So I used them, and still felt OK about calling them greenbacks. So, is the 10 worse than the 20 in terms of degrees removed from green?
I think the color of the 10 is much more noticable - it definitely has that peach/orange tint, and since we’re not used to seeing our money that color, it stands out more. But, I just see it as proof the that TN Vols are taking over the nation.
