    Probably a good thread, where you can't come up with a reply.

    What the Big Bad Wolf doesn't know is that the government spent an extra 20 trillion dollars to reinforce the money houses with a platinum & diamond alloy. The government lolz at the taxpayers....

    And if you're lucky, maybe that'll buy you some eggs at the market.

    Inflation is funny like that.

    Technically it is defunct so you shouldn't be able to even buy eggs. Unless of course you sell it to collectors for other currency (about USD $4 atm?) IIRC the (hyper)inflation in Zimbabwe is prob the most outrageous in the entire known history of mankind so far right? O___o
