Funny Traveller, if it's OUR money that looks so bad, why is it that it's spread all over the world digging everyone else out of their holes?

Hey Jal, you might get a battery or two, maybe a flash card that would fit in the camera after selling that one! :) What do the tires look like?

Standing ready for pre-order.

Why didn't you just put $3500 in the picture instead of what looks like about 8-10k?  I'll tell you this, no truly wealthy person would do something like this, it's tasteless and has a "hey please give me some attention" vibe to it. 

If your computer ever gets seized the cops will find this post, and that probably won't help your case.  And based on the wear that money doesn't look like it came from a bank in one withdrawal. 

So what are you selling exactly?  There aren't many other reasons that a normal person would have that laying around the house..

Hahaha... why can't people just laugh and have fun with the OP?  Some people have lots of money, some have little, some are in between.  Who cares?!  Just laugh and roll with it... I'm sure that's what the OP meant to start.  If not, that's funny too!!

I agree.  The money may not even be real but who cares, it's worth a laugh while we wait for the big day.  :)

I know how I'm paying for mine... I'll be selling little silver | stickers. You can buy one and put it next to the || on your 5DII and it will make everyone think you've actually got a 5DIII.

yep... hemp plants in the OP photo.  The funny thing is that in about 10 years of inflation, the photo will be even less impressive. 

What an affronting goof... really...show what really matters... your car  HAHAHAH!


What is it about owning an expensive vehicle that makes people forget how to park?  ;D



Haha,, that's funny.  You mean the wife does not know how to park.. or how to start the car for that matter thank God!

Ya and a yellow Ferrari? Why would you do that to such a beautiful machine? So cheesy.  Don’t worry it’s a Ferrari, you will get attention.  Stick with black, red or white.

Ferrari is red, people who have bought other colours have missed the point.  That said, I wouldn't say no to a free yelllow one; I'd just have to shell out for a respray!

P.S. I had to zoom in to 100% to see how much money the OP actually had; why do US bank notes all look the same? Surely a country as rich as the USA can afford colour printing? The US dollar looks like a third world currency!  :)

Honestly I agree.  I wanted Black, but it's not like they have a ton of these floating around and I have other red cars so what the heck.  I think white would actually be pretty cool for the style.

Seems like a lot of you guy/girls are just here for fun. I've read many people say "my wife says no"? You're a grown ass man asking your wife for allowance, what a same.

As for me well..



Be careful what you post on the internet my friend... Everybody now knows where you live....

Is that all you got?  Sad.  I'd show you what I have stored away but I'm afraid uncle sam would come knocking asking a few questions. 

Lets just say, you've got a ways to go to catch up to me.  Keep stackin!

If rich equals debt, then yeah, USA is rich...otherwise then yeah, it is a third world currency.

Someone's a little insecure about something to have to post a pic of cash.

We're working on it.  It's my understanding that there's a complicated plan, developed by a large team of highly-paid government officials, to fund the redesign of US currency by developing a method to monetize the savings in typing time and costs associated with both printing and electronic data transmission of not using all those extra letters you folks use in words like color...and traveler.   :P
