1 billion trillion Pengõ (1 milliard-billion in the long scale, as shown) = 1 sextillion Pengõ. Printed in 1946 shortly before the forint replaced the pengõ as Hungary’s national currency, at a rate of 400 octillion pengõ to 1 forint.

    I’d love to stuff a handful of those into a tabledancer’s g-string.

    yes, Fiat money is not based on anything real. the value of Fiat money is determined by the whims of men.
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_money

    this means you can have a piece of currency valued at 400 octillion pengõ that is not worth shit.

    on the other end of the spectrum is Representative money, which “can be reliably exchanged for a fixed quantity of a commodity such as gold, silver or potentially water, oil or food”.

    this is why the Federal Reserve owns your ass…

    vote Ron Paul 2008 even if it won’t change the system…. wasnt it vygramul who said “Just because you can vote for your favorite clown doesn’t mean it changes who owns the circus”?

    milliard-billion? sextillion? with all the mathematicians that have come from Hungary, you would think they’d be using exponential notation for stuff like this.

    Kaze

    “Man, that’s a nice car, how much did that set you back?” “3.74 x 10^23”
