    I'm still waiting on the hand scan technology that will scan the chip in your hand for payment.

    You're someone who gets where this all is leading. A cashless society is a locked down controlled society. All for your "Safety" of course....

    Quoted from chad:

    Lets hope cash still stays around for a long time!! Once that is gone, total control by the good ol government. I no like....

    This just happened last night with one of the kiddies behind the register of a new pizza place I wanted to try. Pizza came to $15.79. Handed him a $50 bill. He looked down at the cash in his drawer and was befuddled on what my change should be. Even shouted over to the owner who was busy making pies at the time so couldn't help him. He squirmed a bit. I waited a few more seconds then told him "$34.21". He counted that out and handed it to me still with a confused look on his face. What are these kids being taught these days? And school is more expensive then ever? Glad I grew up in the late 70's when doing math in your head was a normal occurrence and no Common Core BS to dumb the kids down.

    Quoted from o-din:

    Maybe, but since the guy or gal working the register usually can't count change, then we are sometimes in the same boat as those that need their smart phones to run their lives.
