The current one is diabolical in so far as there is no wear and tear in it at all. also the general designs of the € notes is extraordinary bland and uninspiring!
The new one is supposed to last 13 months, not in a sweaty arsed farmer's back pocket, it won't!:p

THE NEW

And it features a character from GREEK mythology, does some eurocrat actually have a sense of humour?

Is that a link to a hooker service?
No, I don't think any of them would charge you just a fiver!:roll: I doubt the like of you could pay one of them with a single note for a service rendered! Well, he/she would obviously have to take payment first as well!
Maybe 5K in your case!

Nope. It's a link to the note. (Although I did laugh at the escort link thingymabob).
Hey the money woz just resting in my account! That post was totally legit (for the moment) and so is the current link (for the moment)! Mind you it's "touch and go" as to which site the hooker site or the € site will be gone first!:rolleyes:

And we have the gall to complain about the euro design being bland?

Whatever about being bland, shows how far we've come that to imagine a religious figure on our notes these days would be laughable.

I wonder how much it costs to make these fivers - there's a raft of s************************y printing, infra-red technology, holographs, watermarks, security thread, new security features etc...?


edit: s.w.a.n.k.y :roll:

Agreed. Where better to get a rebuttal? :)

Gave me a chuckle... (It was the reactions of posters who had clicked on the link what did it)

Exsqueeze me, her majesty, our recently installed all-time favourite British monarch is head of the COE and appears not only on British banknotes and coins but also on the notes of many nations in her Commonwealth! and not wishing to get rid of her head on UK notes and coins was probably the main reason why the Brits never joined the yoyo and they were damn right in that decision whatever may have prompted it!

Ah no. And it was worth something too. You could get hammered on one of them back in the day.
More importantly , you could get one out of the ATM on a monday morning ( andsurvive - just about )

Dunno, but it costs 1.64 Eurocent to make a 1 Eurocent coin, which is apparently, why the ECB is planning to get rid of both the 1 and 2 Eurocent coins and will be requesting merchants to round up or round down prices to the nearest 5 cents accordingly! we all know what will happen here of course, firstly prior to the removal of said coins, all prices will be rounded up and then subsequently will be rounded up again, as happened with the € changeover and the local body responsible for insuring fair play with its special stickers will see and hear absolutely no evil!:mad:
It might actually be a clever (Ha Ha!) ECB ploy to introduce a little inflation given our Germanic masters traditional aversion to it!
