» the worst thing about american money is that all the bills are the same size and colour: british banknotes are different sizes and colours, not just 'cause they look pretty, but in order to help the vision-impaired. when I'm in the states I always have to watch out that I'm not handing over the wrong denomination because they're all so samey - I always wonder how the poorly-sighted must find american currency?
