Funny Story I would Like to share

#1 Unread post by wilkinsp21 »

So ever since I was a kid and saw a movie that had a briefcase with money, I wanted that! Now as an adult I know that would cost a ton of money to get
even if I do as just 1 dollars; a few years ago I got a $50 stack of $1 dollar bills; new and wrapped, and I thought was great, I just love money, the look, the feel, the smell.
But things happen and well I needed the money so I spent it; ever since I have looked for a new stack of $1 bills new, and every time I goto the bank, nope;

well I went today and still no, but they had a stack of New $5 bills!!! I said sure, smallest you can get is $100 dollars

It is nice to have a new stack of cash, but this is not all cool as the bigger stack of $1 bills I had

Venezuala, newsworthy for becoming socialist not too many years ago, is repeating history that EVERY socialist nation has since the dawn of time (check it out - its fact). Their economy is rapidly dying and hyper inflation is setting in. It takes millions of Bolivars to buy something worth a couple US dollars now. A literal suitcase full of their money would cost practically nothing. So you could still have your suitcase full for very little. Unfortunately the same story has always happened, but some people never learn...

Hey W, man I have suitcases of freshly minted, small, unmarked, wrapped bills here at the Palatial Ranch and Estate. Just give me 80% Face Value and you can have all you want 不不不不不不不 Just kidding.

I know what you mean by the look and feel of new cash, and having it "banded" is neat also. Are they sequential? I have two sets of 5 each 20s, one that is 2001 series, and one that is 2004 series, sequential and pristine, out of an ATM nonetheless, to me finding stuff in the wild, even though not that valuable, is it's own reward.

There should be a "paper money scent" made by Glade or Tide.
