I need advice....
I have alot of foreign coins and bills from all over, most of it I got at flee markets and antique shops back in the states. No rare coins or collectables, just 4 big coffee cans full of coins lying around the house collecting dust.
What should I do with it? I can't sell it, it's not worth the cans they're in. I can't spend it....so what could I do?
I'm all out of ideas

Doctor, doctor....I need help. For some reason (probably because of my "name") I keep getting calls from G.W. He keeps asking me for advice. You know, things like "what should I do about North Korea?", "what should I do about Iraq?", "what should I do about Afghanistan?". I keep telling him to simply ask Deux Ex about those matters. But lately it's gotten to be a tad more 'personal' -- you know 'oval office stuff'. "G" has some real performance issues and lately his ratings have hit rock bottom. What should I tell him.
I'd refer him to young Deus but I thought that I'd better tell "G" myself. What should I tell him to do? He has 'real performance anxiety'.

^^^ Oh, so the good Dr. I does make HouseCalls ?
Well, you see Doc, it all started back in July of '05. The wife and kids had gone on vacation to visit her family in Texas. I, however, stayed behind due to various business committments and such.
Well, someone's gotta do it.?
Okay. Now, here's my "problem".
In the days that followed I happened upon a website, which will remain nameless, and, in the first few days [read: weeks] I found myself logged on during most of my waking hours.
Now ... before you ask, No, it is not a site of ill repute, or one that lies in the shadowy recesses of the Internet. In fact I've found it rather interesting with regards to providing insight to the world around us and the inhabitants thereof, to include their thoughts, beliefs and desires.
My "problem" seems to be a bit of an "addiction" to the site in general. While I have typically lost interest with similar websites in the past, such is not the case with this one.
The evening news, TV in general and virtually All media types seem to provide a single-sided view of the events taking place around us every day. A brief and fleeting glimpse, at best. However, the website I happened upon, and have developed such an affinity for, offers a much different and multi-faceted view, from a Global membership mind you. It has become the first "checkpoint" in my quest to gain a better understanding and overall perspective on issues and situations that should be of concern or interest to most anyone.
Rarely does an issue or "story" hit the press, media or evening news without the site in question having an existing discussion regarding such.
I'm hooked, Doc. Is there a cure ?
No, my affinity for said website has Not negatively impacted upon real life issues or concerns, nor has my participation therein. My concern is more that of an E-addiction.
What say ye, Doc ?
