RE: [gpsstash] Travel Voucher for bumming a room to geocache [GPS Stash]


Hey don't worry. I've been a us citizen for 22 years (well, 20 if you
don't count the time I lived in europe) and I still don't know who's on
our bills. And they haven't changed forever!

Ah... now it makes sense... I wouldn't have a clue who appears on our
bills. They changed them a few years ago - they're now so plasticy and
shiny that the light reflects brightly off them making them a pain to
read. Thankfully they're colour coded.

So... can you combine the two names together, such as for $120, could
you say a Benjack?

Andrew Jackson was the 7th president of the US (1829-1837) and appears
on the US $20 bill. Benjamin Franklin was one of our founding fathers
and appears on the $100 bill. As a result, slang has developed here for
the bills: "Jackson" for the $20 bill, and "Benjamin" for the $100 bill.

"Benjamins" has also become generic slang for money, as in "He's doing
it all for the Benjamins."

I'm a little confused, what is 'Jackson' and 'Benjamin'?

Whoops...my bad. I was having a long day at work and my brain was
shutting off every time it possibly could.

$20 seems a lot more reasonable. For some reason Jackson was equaling
Benjamin in my mind =)

$20 won't even rent you a cot outside the bus station in these parts?

Heck, I can't ever in my entire life remember paying less than $25 for
a room out in the boondocks. (That was a scary looking room indeed)

Not everyone has a room to lend out, and not everyone travels with the
same frequency, so it only makes sense to set some arbitrary but low
amount for this.

We could all mooch off each other, but some (not you of course) would
abuse this and kill it for the rest of us.

I was thinking $20 because it's lower in price than the cheesiest
flophouse, but enough to cover the added expenses like extra power and
water usage...etc...

YMMV
