    Star goes at $35 in CHCU.

    Can't say it's CHCU but still a nice offset to no silver.

    You had a GOOD day!

    It's not the banks, it's the people that bank there. You should just be glad that you are surrounded by smart people. Around here, people seem to think that fog means you should speed up and tailgate. No wonder they spend all these valuable bills at face value.,0,6463381.story

    Aint that the truth. I have driven through Boston on MANY occaisions. Never driven through Chicago, so i cant compare - but Boston is a whole different animal if you want to drive from point A to point B... especially downtown... groan!!!!

    I remember reading something about back when the $2 note came out, people saw it as bad luck. Like black cats, or walking under a ladder, the $2 note was considered bad luck, and if you got one in change, you were supposed to get bad luck. That's a theory as to why they never really circulated as much. To where it fits in here, the superstition also said was the way to "cleanse" the note of it's bad luck, you had to fold a corner of the note. Then, the note was considered bad luck free.
