$100 Bill! $100 Bill!

 

Did you know there’s a new $100 bill design? Yeah, me either. It will debut on October 8. And one of them could be worth up to $15,000!new-100

According to the Boston Globe, depending on their serial numbers, their value to currency-collectors could go as high as $15,000 each! Wait, what? That much for a $100 bill?

The Globe explains that collectors view certain 8-digit serial numbers as “fancier” (meaning more rare, and thus more collectible) than others. The fanciest numbers, according to collectors, include ones exceptionally low: A new $100 bill with the serial number 00000001, for example, might fetch up to $15,000.

Other types of “fancy” numbers are highly sought after. These include “ladders,” which have their numbers in sequence (e.g., 87654321), “repeaters,” which have two sets of the same four digits (e.g., 41124112), and “solids,” which have eight of the same digit (e.g., 44444444).

 

That’s nutso! I will definitely be looking harder at serial numbers. Wait. Nevermind. I can’t remember that last time I held a $100 bill in my hand! [Thanks, direct deposit!]

Bey and Jay Are Gonna be All Right.

I don’t know about you, but I am often concerned about the livelihood of Beyonce and Jay Z. I mean, it’s not like they are particularly talented, popular, or business savvy.

I’m hoping you read those first lines in the most sarcastic voice your brain could muster, because they were dripping with sarcasm.

Anywho, Bey and Jay have been named Forbes’ Highest-Earning Couple. between June 2012 and June 2013 the pair made $95 million. 95 MILLION DOLLARS!

Second on the list are Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, followed by Brangelina. Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are in 4th, and rounding out the top 5 are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Meanwhile, Chad and I will be over here eating our Ramen Noodles. :)
