Do yourself the favor. "Walkabout" rates right up there with "Nanook
of the North".

Oh, and by the way, here in Mexico where they reissued the peso they
didn't bother making 1 centavo coins, or even 5's, the rest of the
coins are already as thin and tiny as they can get and still be
there. I love it. Instead of reverting back to the cacao beans of
the ancient past and the Aztecs (basically) though there handing out
chickle gum of (basically) the Maya for small change instead. Maybe
after this lastest economic boom finishes we'll all be back to
where, if all fails market-wise, you won't have to jump out of
windows. You can just eat your own money. I'm waiting to see just
what kinds of famous personages and mottos they're going to start
stamping on the little chicklets. $ signs on one side, and "In Munch
We Trust" on the other?
