    Found a fun website. Well, I thought it was fun.

    http://www.WheresGeorge.com .

    Someone set this up so people could look at the currency in their wallet, type in the serial numbers here, then spend the bills and see if anyone else gets the same bill and types it in to the website later. Write the URL of the website on the bill - it's even legal, as long as you write it on a blank spot. I use a ballpoint pen with red ink.

    You don't need to use your real name, or any actual data about yourself. You can type in your zip code if you want, so the site can tell people where the bill went; or use a fake zipcode or etc. No one worries about it, one way of the other.

    It's interesting to see where a bill you had, shows up later.

    If you type in an email address, the site will send you an automatic email when someone else types in a bill you previously typed in.

    Took me four weeks to finally get a notice that someone else had typed in a bill I had typed in. They don't tell you who it was, of course, just what zipcode it was found in. YMMV, with some people it can take months... or only a day or two. Some people watch their bills drift all the way across country, and even overseas.

    Important? No.

    Cool? Yes.

    Enjoy.

    :D
