The reason for these god-awfull
y wierd prices like 19999 and 5.95 is because of one man's deam of getting rich
...He asked vendor
s to set their prices slighty below a full dollar
so that they would get a nickel
change to buy his newspaper
have gone from US$
0.05 to US$
0.50 to 1.00, but the *.95 and *.99 prices remain regardless.
Now you have a possible excuse to build a time machine.
