Turning your utility bills into legal tender

Has anyone tried turning their utility bills into legal tender? Apparently it works.

You become the guarantor for your debt and issue a promissory note as legal tender, just as the Reserve Bank issues promissory notes as our currency.

Personally I haven't studied economics, but I'm very intrigued.

Yes, this is related to the new video blog by JK from Teenage Mothers (see the link below).

He took bills from the Commonwealth Bank and transformed them into legal tender (using the 'acceptance for value' method). Then he received credit from the bank. But this topic deserves its own thread.

Sounds pretty jacked to me.

Watched the vid though. Reckon if I met JK in a pub and he was talking that crap I would say ''yeah... you're a dickhead'' to his face, but in a good-natured way, and keep talking to him for entertainment value after that. All the while knowing that I will never issue a promissory note as legal tender.

But then, I am a stickler for the rules. I couldn't be fucked with the battle of wills which would no doubt ensue. If I have to fight, I'm going to make it a fight I really believe in.

This documentary is also very relevant. It was made in 1996 but is fully applicable. It's about 3 and a half hours long, but worth the time. It's called 'The Money Masters' and outlines the history of money and the insidious domination of private central banks:

Cause if you can't buy a beer with it then it isn't money in my book.

I have a gas account, an electricity account and a SA water account.

I need some bike parts.

How do I make this happen?

Do you reckon Wiggle or Ribble will accept my invoices via PayPal?

I assumed they were one in the same. Electric Flu 2.

this is all Teenage Mothers promo. It's getting repetitive, and it's embarrassing.


mule  said about 1 year ago:

it's getting seriously tedious...why don't you spend all this time writing tunes?


Northside  said about 1 year ago:

I used to be a fan of the band but all this cynical spamming is getting old. It's also a bit lame using JK as some sort of circus act to get publicity for the band. Just stick to playing tunes.

No, it totally doesn't!

This is a waste of a thread that could have been used as an unfunny parody thread, a lame article about something to do with Gotye, or even a review of an album that Mikey Young once listened to while recording something else.

Instead it's this. What a waste.
