    The largest note ever printed was the $100,000 bill which featured President Woodrow Wilson.

    When I read the title I thought he was using Zimbabwean currency.

    Didn't they cease to make $10,000-bills in order to obstruct organized crime? (Hello €500-bill!) And how large amounts of change are Walmart obliged to return? Counterfeit or not, Fuller is a retard that made an ED-article.

    Funny how we conceive the value of a piece of paper.
    We are completely brainwashed.

    It's convenient. Or would you rather we barter every time we need to buy groceries?

    You're right. Things are only as valuable as they are useful. That means that after the apocalypse, our money will be almost as worthless as you.

    I think we'll use bottle caps instead of paper money. That sounds like a good idea.

    Yep, Fallout reference. Here's a cap. It might be worthless now, but the world is supposed to end in 12 months, so it may do you some good next year!

    "What do you mean it's not legal tender?" I imagine the guy said this at one point.

    Would you rather carry around a wad of cash or a huge sack full of bottle caps?

    the whole point of currency is not having to carry around your bartering materials everywhere you go.

    the early currencies worked thusly: a guy brought his cow (or whatever) to the "bank" and was given a token, he then traveled to where he was going to sacrifice the cow or whatever, went to another office of the same "bank" and traded the token for another cow.

    later on, people started just trading the tokens for stuff, and their original purpose was lost.

    It was a joke. I was referencing the Fallout games where, in a post-apocalyptic world, people use caps for money. I don't honestly know what we should use as money if the world ends. I probably won't care, since I'll probably be dead.
