Leafs Not as Good as Money
by Kris on 10/6/2008 (0)

"What the hell am I supposed to do with all these?!?"
Sure leafs are great... they convert sunlight into oxygen, they provide shade in a hot summers day, and for some strange reason they turn Super Mario into a raccoon that can fly. Yet the age old question persists, are leafs as good as money?

Comparing the colors, leafs have a definite advantage. Both are green most of the time, but in the fall, leafs will go through a color explosion of yellows, oranges, blues, and eventually browns. Clearly, the advantage goes to the leaf.

Another advantage of leafs is that they grow on trees, unlike money. This creates an abundance of leafs, though at the same time the huge amount of supply makes each leaf nearly worthless. Money is much harder to come buy and even more difficult to make. You can just walk around a forest or park and collect leafs, you'll probably need a job to get money.

When it comes to buying things, money shows its true might. Money can be used to purchase goods and services in the United States and most countries in the world. Conversely trying to make a similar purchase with leafs will get you laughed at, berated, and looked at like you're a fool. While it might be possible to barter with leafs and get the items you need, the overabundance of leafs and their complete uselessness make it very difficult to do so.

To prove this point, I went to a local Starbucks with a garbage bag full of assorted leafs. After ordering my coffee, I poured the bag of leafs all over the counter. This quickly drew the ire of the Starbucks employees who questioned "What the hell are you doing?!?" before ushering me toward the door, minus my drink.

I didn't fare much better with my attempts to use leafs in vending machines either. Leafs are similar in color and thickness to money, but caused an awful squealing noise when I inserted them into the vending machine and rendered it useless. At least now I know how to stop a vending machine if I ever need to, leafs are like kryptonite to them.

While leafs have proven to be more colorful and easier to obtain, the fact that money can be used to get other things (such as more leafs or a tree that makes leafs) while leafs can be used for nothing overshadows these two benefits. Clearly money is in fact the better man.s/tds/go.php?
