    they don't even accept 50s over here in the UK....

    heck, this sounds like a good plot device for a sitcom...

    someone is given a billion dollar note and goes crazy trying to spend it or get enough money or purchase enough **** to get change.

    Yeh, you don't see many of them. I had one at Christmas when I was shopping, and the girl at the counter looked at me really funny . . . and I hadn't even shown her the 50 :D

    I’ve gotta be honest. I sympathize with those who went through that awful ordeal with Katrina. But compared to groups like the survivors that lived through the Holocaust, these people didn’t suffer one zeptosecond, and here they are asking for three QUADrillion dollars. Does that sound like a joke to anyone else? Seriously, why not three kazillion dollars?

    If this much money really does exist in our plane of reality, I do believe it would bankrupt the planet Earth. And what does that accomplish?

    3 quadrillion would bankrupt the US and the EU combinned. It is a stupid amount.

    Regarding large notes, I have had 1000CHF (swiss francs which is 0.9 to the $) and €500 notes and they are difficult to spend. I had to pay a few times with a credit card because some restaurants or shops will not accept them.

    I just solved one of the nation's largest problems. Darthphere for President.

    Ok, so let's say they negotiate down to the billions, there are what 60,000 claims? That still leaves them with a big chunk of change for each person. I would give them the money on the basis that they agree never to apply and be entitled to welfare, food stamps etc. Then we can make a deal.

    At one billion per claim, assuming there are 60k, that would add up to 60 trillion dollars. Still have to be higher than a swedish kite at the top of Mt. Everest to expect that kind of dough. The real damage to these people's tangible lives can't possibly amount to more than a million dollars per household.

    well you have to add that emotional stress crap. But yeah, a million per person is resonable enough. It's enough to get a new life started and start moving on.

    But what do I know, I have never been through anything like that.

    A million dollars is a decent house, two cars, kids in school, food on the table, HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and TMC tomorrow. What do these people want, to live like Queen Elizabeth in Buckingham Palace?
