Make $0.50 quick today! WTF?

    $0.50 does equate to 50 cents in the 'rest of the world' right? :eek:
    -----
    I occasionally see these "make $0.50" threads on DP (example), and can't for the life of me imagine why anyone would jump through so many of the necessary hoops to make a crumby 50 cents.

    If I went to my local shops with 50 cents, I'd be lucky to find ANYTHING that I could buy.

    What exactly can you buy for 50 cents in your country?

    All money adds up, but here have been worse posts then that, offering 10 cents etc.

    $0.50, that's about £0.25... Which is nothing, you could buy maybe a couple of sweets.

    But in Africa, India etc - i'm sure it's worth much more.

    Which is exactly what I'm itching to know. If you can afford a computer and an internet connection (anywhere in the world!), then surely 50 cents is the equivalent to a kick in the nuts.

    50 cents = 20 rupees = 10 cucumbers :p

    No idea why people jump, and it's not just at 50 cents- I've seen posts for 'a QUICK $0.08, in Paypal, NOW!' :D

    Great example ... the currency of the cucumber is accepted world wide :D

    EDIT:
    I'm so stupid and naive.
    Are people using these pathetic transactions to boost their iTrader 'scores'?

    50 cents when converted to my country's currency can buy me a local made hamburger and a softdrink.

    Burger and Softdrink - that's a meal.

    10 Cucumbers, that could be a days food (okay you'd want variation, but you know!) You see how you get alot more?

    People do mainly do it to boost itrader, yes. But those little $'s clearly could add up to something in other countries.

    You DEFINITELY couldn't get 10 cucumbers in UK for £0.25, so there you have it! :p And people in china etc work for a mere few $ a day, so earning that easily is quite a big deal for some I imagine.
