       I seem to remember a similar idea that was hugely fishboned, in part because this is completely baked.

       It wasn't until I was 16 that I saw the first elevator that was NOT coin operated! (Italy). They used 10 Lire coins (about 0.01 $).   

       See picture, in link.

       I hate this model. If you really need to take elevator and you don't have coins, it's pretty annoying, just like public toilets in Sweden are. You know that you always have to carry coins in your pockets, just in case.

       I would gladly pay money to turn [sukiyaki]'s Karaoke machine off.

       //A quarter of what? A quarter of a coin? // In the states, a "quarter" is a coin that represents Œ of a dollar.

       [blissmiss & Inyuki], thanks. I'm often checking in but, fortunately for everyone, not writing much.
