    No. No, not at all. I don't want to keep 'bacon' in my pocket as 'money.' That's weird. I don't really want to touch other people's bacon. (That sounds kinda weird...) It just doesn't make sense. It's pretty dumb! I'd much rather have coins and dollars. Besides, wouldn't it start to stink?

    Not if it was canned. Why would you want shrinking dollars? Another countries silver coins would work.

    The curing & salt is what preserves it longer than fresh pork, same goes for ham too.

    Why not. It's called bartering. I would be willing to trade a nice dinner for some good quality bacon.

    Currency: money, legal tender
    Bartering: exchange (goods or services) without using money.

    Why not turn lard into Biodiesel?
    The Arabs will turn round and sell it (value-added) to the Chinese.
    Process it here & then ship it.
    Cut out the Meddling Middle Men (better than using Minutemen).

    Technically, that's what you're doing when you touch any person, including yourself,
    just has a rind of keratin (protein, uses same amino acids as muscle).

    I could see people using the barter system more often considering the economy. You could do that with anything though, not just bacon.
