    Can Someone please explain? I'm lost.
    I bet you paid in coins. They'll accept coins still, because the are smelting them down to make gun barrels and tins. Try paper money for lunch and see what happens.

    Bring your krugerrands and a cheese grater. It's two shavings of gold for a cup of coffee since the world collapsed.

    I tried buying a coffee this morning with a shotgun while dressed in camo gear, but they insisted on euros too! I was sent to the back of the queue.

    These communists just don't understand that we now live in a post-apocalyptic nightmare. They make a nice latte, though.

    Bad news. NRA announces they will only accept gold bars in toll booths. Traffic slowing to a crawl.

    I think it's very foolish to be investing in gold. What use will gold be? I'm buying into tins of non-perishable food and a shotgun. And tin openers. I'd say in the future a tin opener will cost you an hour's hard labour in the fields.

    Fiat is not as bad as people think. I drove one for 7 years (it was 4 years old when I bought it) and I didn't have a day of trouble with it).

    I never read anywhere somebody suggesting the euro was going to become defunct overnight.

    The Euro is in a very precarious situation.

    The leaders of the Eurozone countries have some tough decisions to make that may not appeal to their electorates.

    If they choose to do nothing contagion will spread.
