£ € $

I don't want to belong to the Euro.

BUT, in the interests of making my accounting considerably easier, I wouldn't mind belonging to a single world currency :-)

I thought that was something to do with the mark of the beast or the great tribulation or something like that. It may make accounting easy but beware...

>:-) Bwahahahahaha

Actually, I've often wondered where all that stuff comes from.

As far as I'm aware, it's based entirely on that bit that says "It also forced all people ... to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark"

Why do people think this needs some kind of fancy technology and a single currency? Even assuming it's talking about a literal mark, you could do it with caveman technology and a barter system: "No, I won't swap my clay pot for your fish, because you haven't got a dab of ochre on your forehead."

It would make it very very very very very much easier. This is driving me up the wall.

Almost makes me want to stop offering other currencies. (But that would mean I couldn't charge people more if they were paying in Euros, so as to cover the VAT in the advertised price, instead of adding it at the checkout which I hate, so I imagine my customers will too)

But really, the time it would save might be worth the loss of a few pence.
