The new bills might be cool looking, but you have to be real carefull when you haul one out of your wallet, cause they stick together and are so thin sometimes you can hand over more than you intend to. I've done it at least twice, and luckly the vendor was honest enough to give me one back. Also if you leave one in your pocket and it goes through the wash (hot water wash), it"s toast

Well, except Canada... yay for regulated banks and a decent economy!

I love the new money. It's very cool. I sure miss the loonies and toonies. All those useless $1 bills stuffed in my wallet is annoying.

I like when new bills come out. They give the temporary illusion that I can buy more with them.

WHAT? AUSTRALIA MANUFACTURES AND EXPORTS A PRODUCT?

Woohoo our economy is saved!

So that'd be the same God awful plastic that we've used for the last score or so - I guess. It's schitful! Try arranging your notes in your wallet after it gets creased. Hint: don't iron it. Plastic money management is the only reason I like cards.

Yep... Middle aged, bald headed men with funny accents who ride motorcycles around the US drinking up all of our liquor and stopping up our toilets.

Switzerland is a third-world country?

Perhaps....but how can you take an economic crises seriously when they're talking in loonies and toonies?

I actually hated freaking loonies and toonies...same reason I hate Euros: I've no desire at all to carry coins. Ever. If I'm going to carry anything that's only worth one or two "dollars" (of whatever respective currency they are), they may as well be bills.

We issued our first plastic funny money note in 1988, the first to ever be issued globally. By 1996 all our money was funny.

Rightly or wrongly, our economy has been considered one of the strongest for its size for a very long time.

can't say I've noticed that with the Aussie stuff, in fact having the money come out of the washing with absolutely no damage after being washed and dried (unlike paper money) is a plus for me because I often forget to clear my pockets before washing (understandable as I have only had decades to learn the consequences of doing it)

Though maybe our stuff is different from yours or you use hotter water.

The major issue I have found with the plastic stuff is that when the notes get repeatedly folded they will suddenly tear right across. Apparently they last longer than paper but when they do fail they don't give any warning (say by starting to tear a bit or looking frayed) they tear completely.
