lol you will be pretty careful where you chuck your cigarette butts with that lot in your house.

It reminds me when I was traveling trough Bolivia, I changed some cash and they gave me a suitcase full of Bolivian notes, buying a few sandwiches required a small ruck sack of cash. I was told if you left the rucksack full cash on the road people would steal the bag and leave the cash. :shock:

hang on, you need to amend the title to ONE TRILLION US DOLLAR (USD) coz one trillion zimbabwe dollar (ZWD) is probably only half a note!

Good point! :mrgreen:

And if that's bad, can you imagine if it were using $1 notes? :shock:

Actually it's 1/100th of a note.

:cool:

Real value is a few fractions of a cent, but they're selling on Ebay for around US$5 a pop. I'm kinda tempted to pick one up, as it's apparently the highest denomination of bankote ever issued anywhere... :o
