    Beware of exploding $20 bills.

    I'm not sure whats scarier, that a $20 bill can explode, that the government can now track our cash, or that these people actually bothered microwaving theirs.

    Don't nuke your cash :bonk: Sheesh...

    And don't keep millions in cash around the house. The fumes from the ink are noxious and dangerous

    I discovered the same thing in Pizza Pops, at first I thought the corner that burst in a cheesy eruption was just a weak spot in the crust, but now I know, they're watching us...

    Bah, I'm putting one in the microwave when I get home. Looked in my wallet and I do have a new one... time to find out if this is urban legend or not.

    Yeh, I did that and he is one creepy dude. Always has his back towards you so you can see the blood gushing out of his head, not good for the carpet.

    Am I the only one that thinks this picture:

    http://www.prisonplanet.com/290204notes2.jpg

    looks a bit fake? Maybe it's just the skeptic in me, but if there were a hole in the paper, the flash would light up the wall through the hole and you'd see the wall through the hole, not just a giant black spot.

    It is illegal to mess with government money and try and pass it off... like if you owed someone $10 and only had a $20...if you ripped it and half and tried to pay the debt, that would be illegal

    Other than that...If it isnt a public thing, i dont think they'll break down your doors after you cut that nickel in half...

    Yeah the hole and the "scorch" marks look photochopped to hell. I will try to make up a counter to this later during the weekend, just remind me to do it.
