    This made me laugh.

    And then this made me sad.

    I thought that sounded like a really cool way of telling if it's a fake, but then I looked at my own money and noticed it's not like that. You should go back to that place and complain - that's really lousy business. You should get your money back or a big meal on the house or something. (I wonder how many other people's $20s got torn up.) One of those pens is super cheap and is a way more reliable way of checking bills. It makes a real bill look wet, but writes black on most counterfeits. I see them used at a lot of businesses around here. Apparently people have been passing fake $20s at my college, as well, as there was an all-campus email about it from the cashier's office recently.

    Good thing I make my own money so I don't have to worry about something like this.

    Or report them for destroying money, I think the US Treasury frowns upon that. Or perhaps they are taking parts of the torn bills to make paste-ups as in the link that Dr.Wurm posted. And also you can take damaged or torn notes to the bank and have them replaced. I've been told they pro-rate by the amount of the torn bill that is turned in. Thus if you have have a dollar bill you get 50 cents. That way you cant tear a bill in half and get two dollars out of it by going to different banks.

    I would have demanded that they call the police right then. There is no way I would just let somebody take my money like that. That's bull. If I were you I'd go to the police myself and file a complaint.

    American money is not made of paper. It's made on a cotton fabric that is similar to denim.

    I was showing a freind who has a blacklight some of the security stuff on bills and cig packs. I had a bunch of ones and 1 of them glowed bright white. Is this just a older bill? I should of saved it but spent it. I don't think anyone would waste time on a $1 bill

    If a bill gets washed with your laundry the brighteners used in most laundry detergents will cause it to glow under ultraviolet light.

    Its all just cellulose fiber. If they can make "paper" from the fiber in elephant dung and still call it paper, then I don't see why the source would make any difference as to whether or not the resulting material is called "paper"
    that makes no logic

    yeah Finch and all graphite and diamonds are is pure carbon.....but there is a hell of a difference between the two even though they are made of the same crap.....cotton cloth and paper are very different even if both are just plant cellulose..............
