Back when my darling bride (of 33 years, 7 months and 21 days) and I were in college, we used to play Advanced Dungeons & Dragons with Jim and Becky. It would be at their apartment or ours, with plenty of food and drink available.
And so it was that I recognized instantly from where the idea for the new trillion dollar platinum coin came.In the old AD&D games, 1 platinum piece was worth the same as 5 gold pieces, a gold piece was worth 10 silver pieces, and a silver piece was worth 10 copper pieces. In creating a $1 trillion platinum piece, President Obama is going to absolutely max out on experience points!
Personally, I’m convinced that Barack Obama is a half orc!
