The only problem is that in hot weather there is a dangle that they might stick together and you inadvertently give £10 thinking it is five. PS Alex you look much better since you changed sex.

Duly noted, (re them sticking together, not Alex), will have to bear that in mind. Not that I ever have more than one in my wallet at a time anyway lol.

They won't stick in hot weather unless they're made from a different material than A$ or the SG$ however, I've had problems separating 'brand new' A$ notes so it isn't impossible for them to stick. Give them a go in the washing machine and it's all good :)

The vegans are at it again because a minute amount of animal fat is used in the production of the £5 a vegan restaurant is refusing to accept them.

Sounds like Meerut 1857 all over again. With the Debden works (where they are printed) being laid siege by an army of vegans. Meat eaters being massacred and thrown into a well and the Bank of England besieged for several months. We live in turbulent times.

Four £5 notes to keep an eye out for...

 

Four special £5 notes, engraved with a tiny portrait of author Jane Austen, are being been put into circulation and could be worth more than £20,000.
The first of four notes featuring art by specialist micro-engraver Graham Short was spent in Kelso in the Scottish Borders on Monday.
Three more notes will be spent in England, Wales and Northern Ireland this week.

BBC - £5 notes worth £20,000

While having a look at the fiver given to me at the local co-op when I first saw one, the serving wench said that those with the prefix AK47 were sought after. The woman next to me asked how much they were worth. The teller said "about five pounds I think." :P

Yes the has been an E-Bay scam on AK47 series, what people have to realise that the numbers go from 000001 to 99999. So if somebody is stupid enough to pay a lot of money for an AK47 £5 then  as Napoleon XIV said someone should be "coming to take them away Ha Ha."

    • As a theology student my professor, a much published former Naval chaplain, set us an essay, saying that if we could answer that successfully we would be guaranteed  a good degree "Which of the gospel writers was the biggest liar, discuss."   I got a good mark, but  don't want to be burned for heresy.   P

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
