    No, I haven't. But I can't see the concept of $16 and $32 bills being the sort of thing that would easily roll off the tongue.

    Do you ever have a cashier try to give you change ... on top of the bills? I like to amuse myself by just dumping the change back onto the counter and watch as they scramble to pick it up.
    At my usual supermarket, the cashier doesn't even handle the change - it gets spit out by machine into a little dish.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    Who the heck even pays with cash? I have $20 in my wallet that has been there for at least 2 months. I pay everything using my debit card.

    ah. the $16 hex would be a $22 decimal dollars and $32 hex would be equivalent to $50 decimal dollars.

    Metric is about way more than base 10. One gallon of water? I dunno, 8 pounds? Wait, is that lbm or lbf, and how does that translate into slugs? Give me a couple minutes and I'll tell you. And horsepower? Really?

    One liter of water? One kg of mass. One Newton of weight? Give me one watt and I'll lift it one meter in one second.

    Two words: Rewards cards. And two more, times two: Automatic payments, full balance.

    as far as my monthly bills go (utilities, phone), I do pay them automatically each month with a rewards credit card, which I then pay in full each month with my checking acct. Using quicken and Electronic Transfers.

    I don't use cash much at all any more except for vending machines and even those are starting to take debit cards.

    I have seen that, but only the coins. They still have to hand out the paper where I have seen it.

    We pay most with Credit Card and pay it off each month. We get air miles that way.

    The self-checkouts at Walmart here spit out the coins and the bills come out of a slot.
