I just got some of these (the ones that are actually in the hundreds), the others I've carried around with me for ages.

Linky.

Also, it turns out there is a UK-wide policy for money exchange places not to carry Pakistani Rupees. Meh.

The total worth of all that money is just under USD200. But it looks like a lot, right? Smiley: lol

That's just so it's easier to make it rain.

I don't think it ever rains in Dubai. Which is sad, because I've been on a roll with seeing double rainbows in every country I'm in for the past month or so. I only have 10 hours there, it'd be kind of weird if there happened to be one.

Oh, wait.

Well, the Indian and Pakistani money is just toilet paper (because it's hard to get toilet paper in those countries. GET IT?)

Seriously? You sure? Smiley: confused

I dunno. That theory is going to need a lot more tinfoil before it's believable.

I'm quite happy that Scottish money is so much prettier (and more colourful) than English money. Smiley: nod

Indian money is cool because it has the amount in all the country's official languages on the back. Emirati money has falcons. Pakistani money has Jinnah. The man makes me cry...

Someone decided we needed new bills, so we went from this to this not long ago.

I've carried around a bill for 500,000 Turkish Lira for the last decade or so. My father went on a trip to Turkey back then and brought it back for me.

I think he said it was worth around $1.23 at the time. No idea if that's changed much.

... doh, just went to find it, and I must have taken it out the last time I cleaned my wallet. No Lira for me Smiley: frown

Thing that always annoyed me about US currency is that it is all the same size.

Though that did make for an interesting plot device in one of the Jack Reacher novels, by Lee Child.

So is $CDN. Quite rankly, I think it's odd to have them all different sizes. I like that our bills are different colours, but different sizes I think would annoy me.

Different color currency just makes me think of Monopoly, and no one likes that game for more than thirty minutes.

And that's provided you're sauced to the gills at the start of the game.

Serious? That's what legalized pot gets you I guess... Smiley: rolleyes

But really, what denominations did they change? I'm traveling up there this summer and will have to try to get my hands on some if I can. Smiley: grin

All of them. All bills are made from plastic on a go forward basis. Paper is still in circulation, but as they wear down and get removed, they get replaced by new plastic bills. At least, I think they're plastic.

There's much less annoying ways to get people naked.

There's a fun game called strip strip. The way it works is that on your turn you remove an article of clothing.

I'm confused about the rules. When exactly do you strip?
