I will burn my money these white people never answered my e-mails...
If your parents are anything like mine, they probably told you money doesn’t grow on trees more than a million times, when you were growing up. Well I can’t wait to show them how wrong they were all those years. And I'm not about "wish tree in England"...
In an attempt to “wake up people’s lazy money”, RaboDirect, an Australian online bank sponsored a special experiment that fulfilled the financial fantasies of hundreds of passers-by – a real-life money tree. The event took place in one of Sydney’s park, where a tree was covered in $5 bills, from its lower branches to the top. People were secretly filmed, to see how they would react to such an unbelievable sight.
Believe it or not, the first 100 or so people who walked by the money tree flat out ignored it. Some of them didn’t even notice there was anything odd about the tree, a group of joggers was to busy running to stop and check it out, and passers-by who did stop to analyze it, just took some photos and left empty handed.
20+ pesos for ice tea
Do you know, that in 1993, during the period of economic austerity known as the Special Period, the US dollar was made legal tender to encourage hard currency to enter the economy. The dollar became the currency used to purchase some non-essential goods and services, such as cosmetics, and even non-staple kinds of food and drink. In 1994, the convertible peso was introduced at a par with the dollar. On November 8, 2004, the Cuban government withdrew the U.S. dollar from circulation, citing the need to retaliate against further U.S. sanctions.
Michael Jackson’s first ever rhinestone encrusted glove was sold at an auction in New York for a whopping $350,000!!!
The glove was the one he wore when he did the moonwalk for the first time in 1983. The glove, still marked “Made in Korea”, is one of the most famous pieces of pop history, worn by the king of pop himself at a momentous music occasion. The glove was estimated to be sold for anywhere from 40 to 60 thousand dollars. Everything owned by the king of pop that was auctioned at the “Music Icons” sale sold for way more than predicted.
His 1987 leather jacket he wore for his “Bad World Tour” sold for $225,000, when it was estimated to sell for $10,000. A fedora hat that was predicted to sell for $2,000, went for $22,000. Even an autographed photo of The Jackson Five sold for $1,600 instead of $200.
Even in death, he still is the king.
