"Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy." - Sigmund Freud
G'Day Currency Community,
Yesterday at 3pm EDT, the UN announced that Iraq had revalued their currency. Normally, this would be a massive story in Dinarville, but given all the years we were made to wait for such a historic announcement it passed without so much as a quick blurb on The Big Call last night.
Amazing given all the years of conference calls and Internet blog speculation regarding the Iraqi Dinar. The IQD RV came and went without a single scream of victory. But I suppose that's the way the NPTB wanted it… wear them down until most to all are utterly indifferent coupled with extreme deal fatigue plus physical exhaustion right up until the very end.
Then BAM! Spring it on them a la Kuwait. Genius.
Honestly, how else would one expect NPTB to process over 30 million currency redeemers in just a few short weeks? Can you imagine trying to manage energetic fresh faced ZIM holders? No way, tired old dogs are much easier to maneuver than eager young puppy's any day of the week.
Oh, we know they want broken souls limping into the exchange centers like a death march of the vanquished. By default, it reduces the initial first wave numbers down to only a weak trickle by day two. And even those who withstood the elongated test of time will simply not have the energy to march through a front door of a redemption center and declare their rate as sovereign.
The rest will just crawl in, one by one, until a dozen hemp smelling Afghani holders from Albuquerque calling themselves the "Southwest Space Cadets" are all that's left on redemption center manifests.
And as for "The Gifted," they are anything but. Those non-skin-in-the-game holders are so sound asleep by now, they would need world war just to hit the snooze bar even if radical Muslim extremists showed up hunting evil western RV infidels.
Even the mildly curious are anything but mildly curious now. Oh, and don't get me started on sock drawer currency holders… maybe they will get around to setting an appointment if they can free up a PTA parent to carpool into tomorrow's soccer practice.
Where's the RV love you all started so many years ago? Where's the passion that once brought you into this exciting journey when your pretzel sticks still came with that crisp crunch? Am I over exaggerating about your readiness level for dramatic effect? OH, HELL NO! One ZIM holder can and will change the world. And it only take a few dozen ZIM holders to even remotely be paying attention with a halfway decent humanitarian presentation in order to alter the course of history permanently.
After all, if you are a chosen one that means you were chosen to be excited about this event. Chosen ones don't give up! Chosen ones never surrender! And chosen one's never fall for the fact that Halloween is a...
