    OK...This may be fun! I mailed this dollar to BRUCE. He can sign it and mail it to another FChat member who will sign it and mail it to anither FChat member and so on. Lets see how many members we can get on the front and back. Receiving participants can post a picture of it as it gets filled up with names! Once filled with names, we can figure out what to do with it!

    you're all going to go to jail, y'know ;).

    here's a more fun game, imo: each of us take a dollar bill and write "FERRARICHAT - <USERNAME>" on the left margin, obviously replacing <USERNAME> with your actual username. then put it back in your wallet.

    eventually you will spend the dollar out of your wallet. over time, let's see if any of us ever get such a bill back at some establishment and then post it back here.

    i just did one. everybody else try it!

    doody.

    PS: there's a neat site whose name escapes me (where's george?) where people geographically track the movement of bills - this is sorta like that.

    Yeah i could just see going to the back and telling the teller "I would like change for this $20.00 bill. And can you make it all $1.00's with 'FerrariChat' written on the left margin of the bill?" :D

    so if we do this enough, eventually the Treasury Agents will probably come and arrest rob and shut the site down :)

    Back in my younger days as a graphic designer, i was paid in cash... Every payday, i'd go back to the office with all of these bills and put my initials on every single one... i did that for a long time everytime i came across money; in some cases, i did it on friends' bills... Every so often, i'd come across a bill i had signed... After i stopped, i came across a bill i'd sign almost a year later...! Very cool since bills don't stay in circulation very long...

    Someone mail me a hundred; i'll sign it and uh... i'll mail it to someone... :)

    OK, here's what we do. Since Chicago is fairly central in its location, everyone send a dollar with their username on it to me, and we'll see just how long it takes for them to reach various parts of the country. Just like little messages in a bottle.

    I've got a better idea. Everyone here send me a $100 bill with your name on it and we'll see how long it takes to get distributed back from my bank. :)

    I thought about doing something kind of like this.

    Do you know that movie with the Ferrari wailing through Paris? I can't remember the name of it, but it seems nobody wants to pay $70 to buy it.

    I thought I'd buy it, watch it and have a list of F-chatters that also want to see it. I'd mail it to the first on the list, who would watch (and record it if he wanted), put it back in the mailer with $5 and mail it to the next guy. After 3 or 4 months I get it back back with 10 or so $5 bills from a bunch of honest men.

    Anybody want to see it?

    I ordered my copy the other day for $29 from chasecam.com. I have the low-res internet version and hope that this will not dissapoint. How do you like the DVD?

    chasecam.com was selling and showing it at the LA autoshow on a rather nice bigscreen. I rather liked it on the DVD. But then I haven't seen it any other way. However people have expressed concerns that the car sounds may be dubbed and the footage may be speeded up. But that applies to ALL copies of Rendezvous and not just chasecam's.

    Well actually, Title 18, section 333 of the US Code states:

    "Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined not more than $100 or imprisoned not more than six months, or both. "

    I guess the definition here is whether you have "intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued." So, just scribbling your name on the corner of the bill could be argued that it is not going to make the dollar unuseable, but covering the dollar with signatures that obscure its appearance could be.

    The Secret Service is in charge of enforcement. You'd like to think they have better stuff to do, but, you never know wher an agent will show up at your door and tell you "You're busted for multiple violations of title 18, section 333. We traced your identity through FerrariChat.com"
