    what would happen if america switched to the euro?
    im just curious, i have read about a lot of foreign workers in different countries prefering the euro, and that some business in NYC have started accepting the Euro.
    Anybody?

    They love the Euro because before the Euro they were trading live chickens.

    Using the Euro involves becoming a member of the European union, which comes along with a set of fresh rules. Even Turkey turned down the invitation after a few months of trying.

    haha, the u.s. wont even go to the metric systems. americans are too stubborn to change anything.

    what the fuck is a "pound" or "ounce" or "foot". our measurement system makes no fucking sense whatsoever.

    plus we have to much pride to be in america and use a "euro".

    It wouldnt be the euro anymore if america was using it.

    Creates confusion the like of which resulted in the mars orbitor crash. That and besides the fact that the rest of the world and scientific and academic community already uses it. But then again, I have been buying 2 litter soda bottles here forever already. :confused:
