    So Americans must pay double? Should I demand to be paid in euros? Is there a fiver uk? Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! I need to market to the uk now. Anyone seeing isgns of the dollar falling? How long do you think we have? IS anyone else from the us showing euros on the upgrade page? Maybe their geo targeting is off.

    The Euro has more downside at this point with the continued debt issues associated with the socialistic entitlements and unions. There is some talk about splitting the Eiro into north and south euros or Just kicking out the weaker failing countries in Europe. Never count out the Almighty dollar, especially when we get Obama out of here.

    I'm pretty sure they wouldn't change just for that (a theory). They're actually located in Germany so it was only normal for them to change to an European currency.

    No offense but thinking that dollar is collapsing from megavideo is a bit naive..
    Euro has lost ground during the last months especially against dollar.

    No offense taken but I listen to Glen Beck and Alex Jones every other day so realizing that I might have to pay $20 a month this month when I paid 10$ last month kind of scared me. Yeah you are right the dollar has gained (just looked)
    btw I did find a uk fiver who pays paypal in euros it is

    The dollar has been on an up and down spiral ever since the gold standard was removed back when president Nixon was in office, allowing for us to print as much dollars as we desired.

    Also When the US started to import everything to save money it was like shooting ourselves in the foot. Our country has become weak in this aspect. And has lost a lot of power, due to outsourcing we cause harm to jobs and the economy. But we have helped strengthen other countries by giving them a boost with more work for their people.

    Will the US dollar ever die out? I doubt it. I'm pretty sure we would have WWIII before we become dethroned of our power in the world's economy.

    This is just my opinion, so please take it as such.

    Funny you say you listen to alex jones every other day and glenn beck. Alex jones is on his shit though i listen to him all the time but glenn beck? are you kidding me? even alex jones thinks that guy is a joke. but to answer your question yes I do believe the dollar is collapsing but i also wouldn't judge it off of that website either like you did. you couldn't find any better evidence of this on infowars or anything? come on man.

    Lets just say I wanted to post a is the dollar falling post b4 going to megavideo and realizing that my friend didn't give me enough money and I might have to ask him for double what he gave me. I kind of wish that I didn't bring up the megavideo thing. I feel stupid. After checking the exchange rate I see I won't have to pay double. Thanks for the correction.

    Neither currency is looking hot right now and there are many entities that are starting to become more selective when it comes to currency- I expect that trend to continue. That being said though, the Euro is more volatile than the USD right now, so this move isn't likely to be due to a poor USDEur rate since that is relatively low right now anyway at ~1.3

    The above line is reason enough to delete this thread. Guys stop filling the pockets of these fear-mongers. :rolleyes:
    After they finish making you paranoid they probably have a good laugh at their audience at the end of the day in their million-dollar mansions.

    The European Union is much less stable than the US, so if anything the Euro will be the one to collapse, not that it is or isn't anytime soon.

    I would like a source of that thanks.

    Dollar isn't really stable, they are just creating inflation all the time so it will be less worth. But yeah, every currency does that, but the dollar is really going for a super-inflation.

    Right now , IMO if they wanted a strong currency that is stable . Asia is the place no Euro's or even AUD is good .
