That didn't take long

  • Make some celebratory sounds, ladies, because we did it! We killed the patriarchy! We’re getting so good at this, one day we might even have equal representation in government. One day. In a century, maybe. But for now, we get 10 bucks:

    Growing numbers of Americans are going cashless, but demands to finally put a woman on paper currency persist. And now the Treasury has announced that a portrait of a woman, to be determined soon, will grace the $10 bill. […]

    Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew, who by law makes the selection of an honoree, will disclose his choice by the end of the year. The new note will appear in 2020 — the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

    The only criterion under law is that the chosen person must be dead, but the Treasury said Mr. Lew was looking for a woman “who was a champion for our inclusive democracy.” That would include the abolitionist Harriet Tubman, who was the top choice on social media of a campaign to put a woman on the $20 bill.

    OK, so activists who wanted to feminize our currency get half of what they wanted, for the ladies. Yeah, that sounds about right. Still, at least it’s something — and women are real good at being grateful for the “at least it’s something” crumbs. And we only have to wait another five years, which is nothing compared to how long women had to wait for the right to vote. And the right to have their own bank accounts. And the right to equal pay. Wink wink:

  • The dude who shot at George Zimmerman — in self-defense, obviously — is now facing a new charge for attempted murder:

    Matthew Apperson turned himself in to authorities in May and was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and firing a deadly missile into an occupied conveyance.

    On Thursday, the state attorney’s office filed attempted second-degree murder charges. […]

    Police wrote in an arrest report that Apperson appeared to have a “fixation” with Zimmerman and that Apperson had recently been admitted to a mental institution.

    We are also fixated with Zimmerman, mostly because we cannot fucking that guy isn’t rotting in a prison cell, for killing a kid. And also because he can’t seem to stop waving his gun around and getting in trouble with The Law. And given that he is, in fact, a killer — albeit one whose sob story of fearing for his life a sympathetic jury believed — it’s not hard to imagine why anyone would feel kind of unsafe and at risk with the Zim around. Still, best not to try to shoot him, as a general rule.

  • Raise your hand if you’re one of all those new millionaires:

    The number of people worth $1 million or more around the world rose by 920,000 to a record 14.6 million last year, according to an annual tally from consultant Capgemini and RBC Wealth Management. It was the sixth straight year-over-year increase as rising stock prices lifted the value of personal wealth in a few key countries.

    More than a third of new millionaires — 345,000 — were in the U.S., where a broad index of stocks, the Standard and Poor’s 500, rose 11 percent.

  • In case you were concerned that Brian Williams might never work again, after all that “Oops, I misremembered my harrowing tales” unpleasantness, you can relax now:

    Brian Williams will not return as anchor of the “NBC Nightly News,” but will take on a new role at MSNBC as anchor of breaking news and special reports, the network announced Thursday. […]

    The announcement caps four months of speculation over whether Williams would resume anchor duties after being suspended in February for exaggerating an account of his Iraq war reporting in public appearances. During that time, NBC News’ investigative unit has conducted an internal review examining Williams’ reporting and commentary over the past decade, both on the network’s broadcast and in public settings.

    “The extensive review found that Williams made a number of inaccurate statements about his own role and experiences covering events in the field,” the network statement read. “The statements in question did not for the most part occur on NBC News platforms or in the immediate aftermath of the news events, but rather on late-night programs and during public appearances, usually years after the news events in question.”

  • Huh:

    The question of whether you are a righty or a lefty no longer applies just to humans and great apes. It turns out that kangaroos prefer one hand over the other as well.

    Most kangaroos prefer to use their left hand to pick up leaves, move food into their mouths, and groom their bodies, according to a study published Thursday in Current Biology.

    The finding suggests that “true handedness” may be more widespread across the animal kingdom than was previously thought.

  • If you haven’t decided yet whether to binge-watch the latest season of “Orange Is The New Black,” our pals at Happy Nice Time People have reviewed it for you, with (almost) no spoilers, to help you decide whether it’s worth your weekend:

    On June 12, our lives became complete with the arrival of season 3 of Orange is the New Black on Netflix. The critically acclaimed series based on Piper Kerman’s memoir of her time in a women’s prison is still as addicting as ever, and I, like other many other people, sacrificed my time and health and firstborn child to binge watch the latest season over the weekend.

    While the series continued to perfectly straddle the line between dark comedy and serious drama, this season was mostly lackluster compared to the previous ones. I’ve outlined my reasons why, with minimal spoilers.

        • JustPixelz

          Not the MBTA, but I used them to pay my $4 bus fare in VT — faster than feeding in the bills. More than once the driver thought I had dropped in quarters. Plus the bank seldom had them.

          • gedjcj

            I was behind a person at a fast food joint who tried to pay with a couple of two dollar bills; the subsequent “who’s on first” discussion between the checker who’d never seen a two dollar bill and the middle aged manager who didn’t get what the checker was on about nearly made up for the delay.

      • Latverian Diplomat

        We’d all know it if the Treasury department wasn’t too stupid to realize what every other country knows: don’t have a coin and a note for the same amount.

        Coins are better for small amounts, because they are durable and last longer and thus cheaper to make and circulate. But people will prefer paper if it’s available. Canada had no trouble with their dollar coin, because they stopped printing singles. So simple, and the US is so dumb about it.

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          USA!!!USA!!!!1!!! If you don’t like it so much, why don’t you move to Montana, huh, librul?

        • gene108

          American currency is also dumb because all the notes are the same size. Makes life hard for the blind.

          Also, too coins do not have their actual value. They just state “worth a nickel” and your left wondering WTF is a nickel worth. Plus the sizes are all wrong. The second highest value coin is the smallest in size.

          I’d hate to be a foreign tourist paying for things in cash. It would be maddening to figure out if you got exact change.

          • Jen_Baker_VA

            don’t be silly, they were designed so that foreigners paying in cash would be easier to trick and short change.
            USA! Also, so 7 year old brothers could “Trade” their BIG nickles for their 5 year old sister’s little tiny dimes

          • Blank Ron

            Fourth-highest – there’s the half dollar and dollar coins, even if you almost never see them. The dime’s size is a relic of when it was made of pure silver – and there used to be a silver half-dime that was even smaller.

          • david green

            I remember trying to explain to an Aussie sailor (a warship called in SF) that the smallest coin, the dime was worth twice the larger coin, a nickel. He was absolutely sure I was just messing with a foreigner.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            A nickel does say “five cents” on it, but a dime says “one dime” and a quarter says “quarter dollar” so your point is well taken.

            Making the bills different sizes is also an anti-counterfeiting measure. If the smaller value bills are smaller than the big bills, they can’t be bleached and reprinted. It used to be that the best raw material for counterfeiting $20 bills was $1 bills (they’ve made this less easy in other ways than size now).

            The weird coin sizes are from the pre fiat currency days, when the metal in the small silver dime was worth more than the cupronickel alloy in the nickel. That’s no longer true, the metal in the nickel is worth more than what’s in the current dime.

            We are long overdue for a complete redesign (good time to ditch the penny while we’re at it).

        • Sheepshagger

          Think of the exotic dancers! Treasury is notoriously in the garter of big strip.

          • Latverian Diplomat

            Oh, you mean on this issue specifically. Well, a single in 1965 was worth $7.55. Let’s give today’s ladies a raise! (Not like that, pervs).

            So, (Dear Penthouse, you’ll never believe this…) I found myself driving through Vegas in the summer of 2000 and saw that George Carlin was playing the Bellagio, so of course I stopped and booked a room in the “Super 8 Motel & Casino” for a couple of days of drunken debauchery.

            Near my motel/casino (everything’s a “/casino” in Vegas) was a strip club/casino where I stopped in for a beer after the show and I will just say that nothing in my liberal, feminist upbringing prepared me for having a beautiful, scantily clad classics major from Oregon State put her hand on my knee, look deep into my eyes and suggest I pay her to rub her body against my crotch, but not in any weird, sexualized sort of way.

            Flash forward a few years and I got talked into accompanying a client to a local strip club where he immediately bought $40 worth of ones. I asked if I could get fives and was told no. Two hours and five cups of coffee later the bartender confided that the management discouraged the use of larger bills just so the young women wouldn’t make enough money dancing that they needn’t give lap dances.

        • Blank Ron

          As a side note, the initial issue of loonies is still in circulation – I think the Mint might be doing that to see just how long they last. Coming up 30 years, and still counting.

        • Thatsit Fortheotherwon

          Apart from slightly different size, the 1 and 2 Euro coins look so much alike that you nearly need one of each in your hand to see what you have.

          Also, I prefer that far eastern stuff with holes in it.

    • Thatsit Fortheotherwon

      It will surely blow.

    If it was the $1,000,000, I’d nominate Ayn Rand. After all, only the rich will ever see one, so why shouldn’t be one of their heroes?

    Just one more reason to win the Presidency in 2016: The Battle for the $10 Bill.

    Can you imagine the women a Republican a Treasury Department would put on it?

    • Blank Ron

      Do we get to say ‘Ayn Rand’ again?

      • Thatsit Fortheotherwon

        Or that Syphilis Fly lady.

    Since the new bill will be released on the anniversary of women’s suffrage, it’s got to be a woman associated with that. Since we’ve already had Susan B. Anthony, my guess is Elizabeth Cady Stanton, an excellent choice. I’m also happy they’re not putting a woman on the twenty due to that note’s notariety in the sex trade. I would like to see Madison move to the 20, since he’s far more deserving of the honor than Jackson.

    With the beating the middle class has taken at the hands of rich, I would propose a picture of the Titanic

    JULIA CHILD. She was the woman who put cooking on the map. In a world where most chefs were men. She did it with grace,dignity and strength. And always gave credit to her husband who helped her immensely. An example of a woman that loved her husband and was not afraid to credit her marriage as being a team. Did not play a victim and was proud to be a strong woman with grace.

      And, she was a spy!

      • OneYieldRegular

        It’s pure joy to watch those episodes of Julia Child’s first cooking show. She gets progressively more tipsy from beginning to end. It must have been a blast to work on the set of that show.

        • OldMayfly

          Carol Burnett used to do a great parody of Julia Child’s cooking show.

      • And she was intersexed! LGBTQI represent!

    Speaking for the techno-nerds, how about Rear Admiral Grace Hopper?

    • Villago Delenda Est

      I really impressed my geek friends when I told them that Grace Hopper handed me a nanosecond.

    Putting a feminizing Ovarian-American doll picture on the $10 bill would make it worth only $7.80.

    Can we vote? I submit:

    Sojourner Truth
    Mother Jones
    Mae West
    Patti Smith

      Grace Slick.

      • eddi

        Pity they don’t allow live ones on our money. How about Janis Joplin?

    • BearGHAZI

      DEFINITELY Mae West. They’d need to quote one of her zingers, though

    • david green

      OK, I’ll counter with Marie Antoinette. Clueless about social or economic conditions so the right will love her.

  • BearGHAZI

    the feminazis will be pissed when it’s just Hamilton with a girly hat

  • ZappleDapple

    First they came for the ten-dollar bills, but I did not speak out because I am not a ten-dollar bill…

  • Msgr_Moment

    Madonna Rosa Luxemburg X Schoenpixel, or GTFO!!

  • You’re not allowed to complain about the $10 bill unless you can explain why exactly Alexander Hamilton is historically important, which should disqualify at least half the wingnuts.

    • A loser who couldn’t shoot straight?

      • Well, that, and he was an early advocate of economic planning and a strong federal government…

        Huh, actually, shouldn’t the wingnuts be overjoyed he’s getting kicked off the $10? Or would they only be happy if it’s Ronald Reagan or Aryan Jesus?

  • Mehmeisterjr

    Will the new no-longer Hamiltons be legal tender for all debts public and private? Because, if not, I’m going to bummed out, man.

  • Lady Bug

    Well folk, I think we now have our motive for Mother Emanuel Church massacre./sarcasm (just in case you couldn’t tell!).

    I’m voting for Audre Lorde, just so we can hit the trifecta of woman-black-and lesbian all at once. Also it would make the wingnuts go crazay. Also too, she’s a pretty awesome person. Also.

    Carrie Nation.

  • gedjcj

    So, I pushed the idea of a woman’s image on the twenty because seriously, Jackson? but now I’m supposed to get behind a ‘ten’, because ‘jeez, who wants a five or two?’

    Mea culpa I a snerked a little at this joke before throwing up in my mouth.

  • cleos_mom

    Growing numbers of Americans are going cashless, but demands to finally put a woman on paper currency persist.

    Well, of course. How else is your future employer going to keep track of everything you do and buy? Think of the children boss!
