PostSubject: The presidents   Wed Sep 07, 2011 5:40 pm

Hi everybody,
can someone pleas post which president is on which dollar note? I'm going to put a bit more haggling into the dialogs, so I need more variations for the Malk lines.

<--- Ignoring the whole 'football' debate, since I'm not a big fan of either game.

One dollar bill - George Washington
Five dollar bill - Abraham Lincoln
Ten dollar bill - Alexander Hamilton - not a president, BTW
Twenty dollars - Andrew Jackson
Fifty dollar bill - Ulysses S. Grant
One Hundred - Benjamin Franklin (C-notes, 'Benjamins', etc.) - also not a president

'Dead presidents' = money in general

There used to be $500, $1000, and a few higher denominations, but although they are still legal tender, they haven't been minted since 1969. $100 is the highest bill in common usage.

I'd have to Google for the presidents on the higher denominations anyway... and I'm wondering why you didn't just Google anyway. (hmm... pondering...)

Yep, we had the whole football vs. soccer debate when the last FOOTBALL worldchampionships were on. Must have been shortly before you two joined the forum. Cool

Thanks for the info, PGM.
The common denominations should be enough to put some color in the Malk lines. Especially since american dollars are so boring. All just green like Kermit the frog Very Happy

I just didn't think of googling myself. I'm not a big fan of the internet anyway. Many pages are like playing with a first generation gameboy (you know, these small handheld devices, prehistoric by todays standards) in front of the display rack of a TV shop where every set is playing a different programme. And you have to concentrate on a 2" display in the center.
And the few times I tried googling something I ended up with a millon hits, showing everything, just not what I was looking for...
The only time I really had a lucky hit was when I was searching for a bloodlines walkthrough. I got banshee, and there I found the link to Zer0's site... cheers

Guess you haven't seen American money lately. They use different colored ink now on the 5$, 10$, and 20$ bills. I think it looks like Monopoly money now... kind of like European money. Very Happy

Yeah, I left out the two dollar bill; that was on purpose. While they are still printed, you rarely see them, and the banks don't even hand them out unless you specifically ask for them. To retailers, they are a pain in the neck, because the normal cash drawer doesn't have a space for them, and they're often confused for a $5 bill. So I figured Childe of Malkav wouldn't care about putting them in the game. If I'm wrong, I stand corrected.

You're right, I don't want to confuse the players too much. So just the base values, 1, 5, 10, 50, and 100. And of course some general words for this kind of green stuff...

At least, we, Europeans, do not mistake a 1$ bill from a 100$ bill at first sight when you want to give money to a bum...
(that's mainly because we don't have 1€ bills, but american bills just look all the same)

There, I trolled, happy ? Very Happy

Well, if you gave the bum a hundred dollars, at least you'd have learnt an important history lesson: George Washington is NOT Benjamin Franklin lol!

Hey, not fair! I've never even watched Fairly Oddparents, and I learned my American history from the same place I learned that all human beings are violent, rapacious, back-stabbing, worthless piles of garbage: American History class in high school.
