Given the worldwide recession we’ve all been dealing with for some time now, a few radicals have proposed the notion that we abolish our current monetary system and replace it with a barter system.
I’ve yet to see any reason to get rid of money because who doesn’t love money? It looks good, it smells good, it feels good. Everything about money is good, minus the fact that there is never enough of it lying around in gigantic piles. However, a Siberian sex shop owner has suddenly made the idea of a bartering system very attractive. Allow me to explain.
What do you do if you own a sex shop with some tax discrepancies in Siberia? Well, the first thing you do is think about how you can move the fuck out of Siberia. But that won’t get the tax man off your back.
