I love watching spy movies where the hero opens up his briefcase to reveal stacks of cash and multiple passports from around the world. I always wondered how to apply for the job of “International Man of Mystery.” Maybe if I mention it here that I’m interested in the job, ECHELON will automatically pick it up and Homeland Security will drop me a line (or show up at my door). I’m pretty good with Photoshop and have some experience with a Fake ID “incident” in college. It turns out I already have a small pile of cash lying around from previous vacations. I’ll assume you guys provide the briefcase and exploding cuff-links.
The other day I read an article about the devaluation of the Zimbabwe currency. Inflation was so rampant in their country that they were forced to create a One Hundred Trillion Dollar Bill (pictured above). After reading the story I went directly to eBay and got my collectible bill for a mere $7.95 (including shipping). Overnight I became a trillionaire. I could pay off part of our national debt and still have a little left over to buy a small government or finance my banana republic.
Resume Reference Point: Can fund own black-ops budget without pesky congressional oversight.
Upon receiving my new wealth, I immediately gathered up the rest of the currency I had collected from various holidays taken over the years. At the end of each trip I’m usually stuck with a few left-over bills and coins that I’m not sure what to do with. I like to keep some as collectible keepsakes, but a lot of times there is additional bills that don’t justify exchanging at the airport. After a decade of global travel, it appears that my stack of cash might be a little out of control.
Who wants to make a prediction on the actual street value of this pile of cash?
