    I heard the plastic they used gets brittle in the cold. Bad choice.

    Israel has something similar. It's weird. Your bills look brand new all the time.

    Reasonably sure that's current. Not that the USD has anything to be pissy about. They were on top consistently for a few decades. Must be President Shwoogie that's causing it to shit the bed. :trollol:

    It still can't overcome the shame of being Canadian.

    But cheer up lad, at least you're not eurotrash.

    I like Canada. Seems to be a lot of A-rabs in Toronto though.

    More Chinese if anything... like in my parent's neighborhood there are a bunch of houses that were built after WWII which have big lots (relatively speaking)... developers basically buy them for about 600K... and put a 5 or 6,000 sqft monster home who sell it to the rich Chinese/Taiwanese for a couple of million.
