not sure if it means anything... since it's not a fixed rate anyways, it could always go back up... as well as $1s are for convenience stores anyways...
when they come for me, i'll be sitting at my desk, with a gun in my hand, wearin a bullet-proof vest, singin: "my my my how the time does fly, when you know you're gonna die by the end of the night"

Uhh... you realize that if a $1 bill drops in value, a $5 bill drops 5x that value, right?

It's not like they say "Oh, well.. the $1 bill is now a 90 cent bill... all the others are ok, though"

Ha, the more it drops, the more I'm gonna save by buying stuff on ebay from usa.

America still has higher incomes and lower retail prices than Western Europe for example.

Guitars for example, usually have the same prices in dollars and euros. A Gibson LP standard costs 2000 dollars in America and 2000 euros in Holland. But the euro is worth a lot more than the dollar, so it actually costs 2660 dollars. While the average wages definitely aren't higher over here.
That's a big ****ing difference for the exact same instrument. And that's still nothing compared to the difference in gasoline prices.

Hahah! Sucks to be America. The Aussie dollar is going strong.

(I'm buying so many band shirts from US sites while our dollar is 80 cents to the US Dollar)

Yea.... All this damn outsourcing America is doing is just further destroying our economy. Eventually, if we keep it up, we'll be a 3rd world country in maybe 50 years.

That's because they are made in the USA and have import duties to account for, plus tax.

Are you serious? Dollar rate go up and down all the time. Hell you had a depression in the twenties, it doesn't runi your economy forever there are ways out of it.

Even with my lacklustre knowledge of economics a lot of you are incredibly ignorant.
