Gosh, people send me stuff. Today I discovered a huge windfall. My friend and volunteer moderator DB Stealey sent me 100 TRILLION dollars in the mail today. Here’s a scan of the bank note:
I’m rich! I can fund my own climate research group, I can get that Ferrari! Now all I have to do is convert it to US Dollars…and um…plot like Dr. Evil here.
Seems it is worth about $30 in this January 2009 BBC article. Well at least I can buy a nice lunch.
Well, maybe not. McDonalds maybe?
Lessee…what’s the exchange rate today?
Maybe if I hurry, I can still buy a hot dog and a coke at Costco. I wonder why they bother putting a security strip in the banknote?
Well, it’s still worth more than this:
Happy Friday everybody!
