I would hate it if a Smart Phone was required to make a payment.

So our only issue is what we would use for coin effects instead of coins. I see it as a very minor magical problem.

Amen.

I'm very happy with my stupid phone. I don't want a smart phone. (For one thing, if I drop my stupid phone and my horse steps on it, I'm not too concerned; I'd be very upset if he did that to an expensive smart phone.)

Problem solved. Bring on a cashless society!

P.S. Seeing Harry Morgan again reminds me of the short-lived TV series "Blacke's Magic" where he played the con artist father of Hal Linden.

They should chip dementia patients so when they go ‘walkies’, cops can scan them and return them to their care homes.

In a perfect world, you're right. But this is not a perfect world and you need a credit card to get a hotel room and a car.

Which is ludicrous.
I was camping with family one day and decided to rent a canoe. The man said no because I had no credit card. Meanwhile, he had just rented one to two 18 year olds with a a huge case of beer.
But he wouldn't rent one to a responsible, professional, family man.
Im not looking for a perfect world, Ed. Just one that makes an iota of sense.


They must have had a credit card.

They did. That was my point.

So do the girls you take them to.

In Brooklyn we would answer that with, "Your Mom sends her regards!"

I think the best magic trick I ever saw was you calling Etienne with a flip phone when we were in Paris. I don't know how you pulled that off but I assume it involved some sort of voodoo. Smile

I did actually. But I made the post before seeing the link! That happens to be one of my favorite Westerns.
