It is not bad. They went decimal back about 1970. Before then it was complicated.

So they have cents and pounds instead of dollars. The tricky bit is some of it looks different because they use a separate design for places like Scotland.

a pound is worth more than a dollar right?

are the cents in britain the same as america? (cept with different designs?)

They aren't cents. They are pence. 1 = 100p.

1 is worth $1.74308

Our coins:

1 Pence
2 Pence
5 Pence
10 Pence
20 Pence
50 Pence
1 Pound (100 Pence)

Then you have the notes

5 Pounds
10 Pounds
20 Pounds
50 Pounds

Simple! :)

That figures from the thread where she said none of her friends were even aware there had been a bombing. It speaks volumes about her country's stereotypical ignorance...

Actually, I think DM just stays really busy or something.

It wasn't DM herself...it's pretty inexcusable to be so ignorant...
