Ok I'm not from America. I'm from South Africa. Here in RSA $1 costs just over R8 at the moment. Cheapest I can remember it was R5 and that was a decade ago. I was born here and only left to go to the UK for a year when I finished school. That was my only time in a first world country. So for 27years I've lived in a 3rd world country.
My whole life I've watched my country get affected by what your dollar does. Hasn't this world depression been brought on by the dollar? I'm glad the dollar is starting to turn to poo,screw it!!! I'm glad you mighty Americans can start joining this rat race called life.
Now my tips for you as a 3rd worlder is plant carrots,tomato's and po-ta-toes. Make a chicken pen and start fending for yourselves. It's a simple life but a nice one.
Welcome to the rest of the world
Seriously though I doubt my hopes of having Americans to play with in RSA will ever come true
So everyone relax and have a bud. If things get really screwed I got space for 10 of you
