To be fair, the Amero coins are real, at least, they're as real as the Wyoming: The Empty Rectangle State coins. The North American union on the other hand...

Hmmm...it would be fun to use these in a coin routine. If no one asks, don't say anything. If someone asks, just shrug and casually mention they're the new currency for the new North American union.

The Amero....

The delusional have had similar rants on this bit of foolishness before.

The facts on currency are simple. The Reserve has printed waaaaay to much currency and has kept the interest rates too low for too long. Over 50% of our greenbacks are in foreign countries. In conflict regions US currency is the favored currency hidden in mattresses, inside walls and is the most accepted for border crossing bribes, buying arms and food. The British pound is second, but, the Euro hasn't yet reached that status. At this point in history the US probably has less than 500 billion circulating inside it's borders; we don't depend on cash. We have been too reliant on credit for everything; including purchases under five dollars. Personal responsibility on how to manage credit is tough for those who have trouble with basic math. Some have obviously learned math from the same folks who educated our congress.
With that, why would the Federal Reserve switch to a new (cooperative) form of currency when credit cards cost little to nothing for banks, are fully automatic, works in every civilized country, plays into impulsiveness and is the key to our economic boom over the last thirty years? Not to mention the fact that bankruptcies are an acceptable business risk, so long as, they are kept between the margins.
POOF!

Mildly amusing they are "for the new North American union", but their patterns appear to be U.S. - specific (e.g., the bald eagle and lady liberty are traditional U.S. symbols).

Rather than hat, it should be touque.

It could be a bit clearer, but you get the idea.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

I did a google search, the most popular names (top 20) in the UK in 2006 were these:

http://www.statistics.gov.uk/specials/babiesnames_boys.asp

# Jack
# Thomas
# Joshua
# Oliver
# Harry
# James
# William
# Samuel
# Daniel
# Charlie
# Benjamin
# Joseph
# Callum
# George
# Jake
# Alfie
# Luke
# Matthew
# Ethan
# Lewis

So I'm not sure what you are ouching about? Is the 2007 list going to be so very different?

Anyway, your comment reminded me of this story hot off the presses ... the most popular new baby names in the USA (not that the results are surprising, as the Hispanic demographic in the States is steadily increasing):

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/17/us/17s......f=slogin

In case you can't access the link:

In U.S. Name Count, Garcias Are Catching Up With Joneses

Step aside Moore and Taylor. Welcome Garcia and Rodriguez.

Smith remains the most common surname in the United States, according to a new analysis released yesterday by the Census Bureau. But for the first time, two Hispanic surnames — Garcia and Rodriguez — are among the top 10 most common in the nation, and Martinez nearly edged out Wilson for 10th place.

The number of Hispanics living in the United States burgeoned by 58 percent in the 1990s to nearly 13 percent of the total population, and cracking the list of top 10 names suggests just how pervasively the Latino migration has permeated everyday American culture.

Garcia moved to No. 8 in 2000, up from No. 18, and Rodriguez jumped to No. 9 from 22nd place. The number of Hispanic surnames among the top 25 doubled, to 6.

Woohoo. George has come back into fashion.

There's a Canadian comic called Mike Wilmot who always gets a laugh ,from a British audience, with the following line about his homeland:
"The land of no specific enemy. We are number 668, the neighbour of the beast"

Canadian is like American, but dude they put lots of extra words in their stuff, like I mean they say stuff like "eh".

The they says stuff that aint right like "aboot". Word. I was kickin' it wit my homies and one of dem aksed me a kweshun. I was all like dem Canadians don't know nuttin!

I put a sentence or two into my "Stereotypical Ebonics translator" (Which I own the patent to, once I apply for the patent) and it came out with that.... Those stereotypical people are funny, because they're all alike

My god my spell check just went nuts.
