    im not really sure what to say about the chanel vs arden and whatnot stuff but i liked that picture best.... anyway, as far as i know the dollar sign does not have clear origins, rather there are many theories as to its origins, such as the U.S. abbreviation theory, the pesos and pieces of eight theories, the shilling abbreviation theory, and the hand counted paper theory, etc.

    ok here's my question: This plant was required growing for farmers from middle ages Europe to in 17th century America. President Thomas Jefferson declared it a "necessity;" it was Kentucky's largest cash crop until 1915. What was it?

    well back in the pioneer days.. the US currency was simply called US.. well then.. the U was printed on top of the S and.. like Americans do in some cases.. we got lazy.. and said its too hard to print the entire U.. so the bottom loop was eliminated.. and we were left with the double line..
    There you go! That one is correct my dear.. and I see you already ask a question..;OP
    cases lazy print loop eliminated double line correct dear op

    Good job Joy! James Marshall Hendrix was born Johnny Allen Hendrix in Seattle. His father changed his name when Jimmy was 3 yrs. old, and named him after his brother who had died in the '20s.

    Wouldn'T that be so sad to know Ur parents missed Ur brother so bad they changed u into him? I think that could mess with Ur mind as a child and probably an adult too..

    I probably wasn't very clear.........I meant that Al Hendrix had named Jimmy after his uncle, who had died in the 1920s. Al's brother.
