and you thought you have money problems ...

i usually don't point to articles in general on here, but i'm always willing to make an exception ... great article about super-problems in producing the new $100 bills.  my favorite cut quote:

"The total face value of the unusable bills, $110 billion, represents more than ten percent of the entire supply of US currency on the planet."

(side trivia related here ... the majority of US currency circulates outside the legal boundaries of the US ... as does the majority of counterfeits.)
