Often asked is the question, "How stupid can one be?" Can this be quantified?

Maybe the folks handling the Darwin Awards can lift the "must have died" restriction??

Actually it sounds like the guy may be mentally ill. He wasn't carrying ID, probably homeless, may not have the capacity to know that there's just no such thing.

So, a quiz: without looking it up can you tell what is the highest denomination in U.S. paper currency? Some other currency?

I understand that the value of the grover has fallen against the value of the Sir John Thompson...

So this guy is clearly not a tester - or if he is, he might seek and pay for training with real $$.

That's interesting. I remember once confessing I thought there was a 500.00 bill and someone laughed at me, however, they apparently do exist and are legal...albiet old.

FAQs: Currency

What denominations of currency notes is Treasury Department no longer printing?


On July 14, 1969, David M. Kennedy, the 60th Secretary of the Treasury, and officials at the Federal Reserve Board announced that they would immediately stop distributing currency in denominations of $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000. Production of these denominations stopped during World War II. Their main purpose was for bank transfer payments. With the arrival of more secure transfer technologies, however, they were no longer needed for that purpose. While these notes are legal tender and may still be found in circulation today, the Federal Reserve Banks remove them from circulation and destroy them as they are received. [\quote]

I Can't seem to find it in my collection but it kind of looks like these:

Ummmmm, don't know about the added-value of Jake's mug, and counterfit is different from confederate value, but....

...if you're a collector:

Quote:

Today, the value of these notes is far from worthless. Their prices range from under one hundred dollars for the most common and heavily printed series, to the tens of thousands for the rarest. Most of the heavily printed issues are still available to some extent, while the less common series are getting extremely hard to find. One thing is certain though, all Confederate currency makes as a good investment and has shown to steadily increase in value over the years.

It's so sad that, as humans, we have become so good at sustaining our species that we have overcome natural selection.
