bottom line I think, if you need a fork lift to open your wallet, you have enough most of the time. However if something requires a fork lift of money.. it might be expensive.

Short ton, long ton or metric tonne?

I get very confused between them.

plain ton, 2,000 pounds.

That's a great question.

The first thing that came to my mind, however, was more in terms metaphorically speaking of what a ton of money was say 50 years ago vs. today. My quick answer right now is a million dollars, but yesterday I was watching the Twilight Zone, and 50 thousand was a ton of money.

Maybe we should ask Donald Trump? ;~)

Gold coins would be $35,795,200.
Well 24k gold ones.

As I recall the big game during that era was to form a corporation,
get a lot of loans, cut big paychecks to yourself and friends,
and then the corporation went bankrupt...

Leaving things unfinished and tied up in legal red tape.

Around here it was usually housing developments with only a few homes
actually built. Roads and utilities to vacant lots.

So.. what is the question?

I was told at one Thai place to order it "Thai Hot" if I wanted both barrels.

But.. that is not exactly cooking.

My experiences confirm the perfect ways to start heated discussions
that will de-evolve into nasty arguments are:

Discuss politics

Discuss religion.

So why bother?

Besides, I am the only person that is right about either.

After everything I have read and heard, I will TRY win10 on my laptop(currently win8 which sucks canal water at low tide). If that fails I will try to find an upgrade to win7 for it.

Or I might have an old copy of vista laying around..

Per Capita we would still lead by far. The problem is that is the WORST.
Lower numbers = better.
