Quid Pro quo: Currency For Space Travellers

Scientists have come up with a new currency designed to be used by inter-planetary traveller, They are called the Quasi Universal Intergalactic Denomination, or Quid.

It is designed to withstand the stresses of space travel and has no sharp edges or chemicals that could hurt space tourists. Quids are made from the polymer used in non-stick pans, so expect to see lots of free floating cash in the future.

These Quids are possibly a new international currency that may be come thick as raisins in the future.

The word 'Quid' is not exactly new it was in fact used quite extensively in England and other english speaking countries like Australia to mean One pound. You may have used or heard of the expression "give us a few quid for it" ? In fact one can still over hear people using the expression even today.
