Did you guys notice when Sheppard took the money from Chuck? Those were Canadian Five Dollar Bills (I'm Canadian, I know because it has the flashy silver hologram labels, and it was a blue bill - $5)

There also appeared to be some sort of asian (chinese or japanese) currency too. But I noticed the Canadian bills - prob more of them going about on set than US Dollars :P.

I'm not quite sure, but the other bill, it almost looked Canadian (like the old school $20 dollar bill!).

I am sure they have something like a store on atlantis where people can buy things like games books and cds. You have to have something for people to do in there free time or the place will be as boring as midpoint.

Maybe theres a Starbucks on Atlantis :D

Just like in Canada, last year there was only one or two in the Maritimes. Now theres like a Starbucks every 10 minute you drive in any direction!

That was my first thought too. I thought the military and scientific personnel on Atlantis were selfless individuals, there to advance the wellbeing of the human race, giving up their lives on Earth to achieve this goal. Why the hell would you need Earth money to do that?

You're thinking of Star Trek.



You fellas actually noticed they were Canadian?

Canadian money is very distinctive to anyone who uses it for a significant period of time. If they had, say, Hong Kong dollars, you can bet that someone who has lived there for awhile would notice it straight away as well.

Blah, they actually have a Timmies. The Pegasus galaxy is practically Canadian.

Could be worse. You could drive down Robson Streen in Vancouver only to see two Starbucks. Not on different ends of the major road, not one in a mini-mall and another a stand-alone store, nooooooo. No, they're directly across the street from each other!

They probably have a mini-Base exchange on Atlantis or the SGC. :P

IIRC, not only are their 2 Starbucks on that intersection that are kitty corner to each other, but on the third corner of that intersection there is another "independent" coffee shop that is actually owned by the Starbucks megacorp.

Hunh. I'll have to brave the wilds of Vancouver and check that out for myself. That means machete-ing my way through SkyTrain :)

Indeed they were, which I thought was pretty neat lol! I think this is only my second time ever posting a reply to a forum post since I joined, but as I said in my first post I like to read what others have to say about these shows I like very much which is why I don't post that much. Peace to the Stargate Universes! (v);..;(v)

Cashier: That will be $5 for your Latte.
Scientist: What do you mean $5, we're in another galaxy for crying out loud!

Darn right I noticed the Canadian 5s. But it got me wondering: what's the exchange rate over there? would they take it at par, or sweat the 5% difference? Although I just checked, and it's actually .9% difference. But on days when there's a 5% difference, would they worry about it?

Which brings me to my other question, brought on by something in Trio: Does Atlantis have a bar? Would they hire a bartender for it, or would they do something like they did in M*A*S*H, where people took turns being the bartender when they weren't on duty? Or do they just have a huge fridge filled with beer?

Yes, they have a bar, and the bartender's name is Armin Shimerman.

When I was in the Canadian Armed Forces, many many, years ago, there was a trade called "Steward" They were a part of the Logistics trades and ran the messes and the bars. I'm guessing they are still around and that the American military has something similar.
I wonder what kind of tippers these folks are?
