    Not in Yorkshire. They have banknotes sewn into their wallets down there.

        Wouldn't that have been the George Second Best version?

          Aye, short arms and deep pockets. Did you know that a Yorkshireman is like a Scotsman with the generosity removed?

            And if ever thy does owt fer nowt
            Always do it fer th'sen.

              Australia is about to launch its new unforgeable $5 note - not sure exactly when but reportedly a masterpiece of currency technology - we'll probably call it "the Great Australian Banknote"

              But what no-brainer designed our 10c coin the same size as our dollar coin, hard to tell them apart at a glance, one's silver, one's gold but only in colour. The blind can tell as only one has a crimped edge, but what genius designed our dodecagon 50c coin!

                Yeah, I linked it above. http://www.businessinsider.com.au/au...ar-note-2016-4

                The dollar is also thicker though. You could say it's worth its weight in gold (or lack of).

                        My own solution?

                        The washing machine manufacturers and the Royal mint are in collusion, the coins are made to exactly fit the pipework, and designed to block the machine at the most inconvenient opportunity, always on a weekend when it costs the most to get fixed, thus keeping the economy turning nicely , and keeping a need for new coinage.
                        The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.

                          How they get them to break down on Bank holidays as well .

                          Conspiracy theorists would claim they had special software designed to cut in when heavier loads are spotted just after a weekend.

                            As are the Canadian notes, the colours are different but that doesn't help a blind person.
                            It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.

                              I find the metal things in bras more interesting and easy to figure. Weeks after they go missing, they end up in the sump and siege the pump. Only then does the wife own up!

                                I'm sure the physics of bra wire design would be a more weighty topic.
