Quick! Tonight/Thursday at 11! On TV! Gazillionaire George Soros interviewed on Charlie Rose!
Note the depth gauge -- 100 feet = 30.48 meters, for the English-challenged. If we knew the other two dimensions of the bin -- a right rectangular prism, but possibly like a swimming pool with a flat but sloping floor -- we could now compute the volume of Scrooge McDuck's cash. The value -- that's another matter. But ...
Myth has it that cocaine smugglers and distributors weigh their mixed-denomination cash in large trashbags, rather than actually bother to count it. Paying accountants to count every bill would be too expensive, slow the operation down, and after decades of this all-cash entirely-untaxed industry, the weight-to-value ratio of cash has been pretty closely nailed.
I just don't know what the weight/value ratio is. It differs with each national currency. If you know the truth of this myth or the ratio of cash weight to value in any currency, Leave A Comment. Use PayPal. Don't forget to subtract the weight of the trashbag itself; in the weights business, this is called the tare.
The artist who created Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey and Louie, the Junior Woodchucks, Gyro Gearloose and the Beagle Boys (masked beagle littermates always trying to break into the money bin) was Carl Barks, self-taught, who created about 500 original color cartoon stories for "Walt Disney's Comics & Stories" and other Disney titles.
During his amazing decades, Disney forbade him (and all his employed artists) from ever revealing his name or existence to the public. Kids addressed their fan letters to "The Good Duck Artist." The Good Duck Artist would usually send them panels of his original art in return.
Free Barks Original Art is now a Thing Of The Ancient Past. Barks was about 100 or 101 years old when he died just a few years ago. He was as amazing a storyteller as he was an artist. The old dentist who sold me a whomp-ass bottle of mercury for $3 when I was 12, his waiting room was filled with Barks comics books. Guy had a subscription. Usually all you get is Highlights For Children, and that sucked.
Hey! I hope it's not on opposite "Jericho" or "Dancing With The Stars"!
Will they speak Esperanto? Is Charlie fluent in Esperanto too?
If Charlie says something that annoys George, will George buy Charlie and sell Charlie to Bill Gates?
In any case, this is Vleeptron's very first recommendation that you turn on the Television Machine and watch something on it, and that your Life will be (perhaps marginally) Better if you do.
My offer to buy George Soros lunch still stands. Any time, any place (I can afford).
You are obligated to watch and listen to this guy if you have EVER in your life muttered or grumbled: "If I had that kind of money, *I'd* do things Very Differently and Far Better and Far More Tastefully and Yadda Yadda Yadda."
Watch and listen to a guy who has something between U$7,200,000,000 and U$11,000,000,000 -- he probably doesn't know very clearly himself -- and check out what he spends gazillions on:
* Assisting the fall of the Soviet Union and its Eastern European satellite countries
* Assisting the fall of South African Apartheid and white rule
* ending drug prohibition and decriminalizing all drugs wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
* defeating George Bush in the 00 and 04 presidential elections
(Sorry about the Malaysia and UK currency speculation things. The lawful activities of vastly wealthy and successful currency speculators are like sausage-making, you don't want to look too close at the details. Still, as far as the law's concerned, he's only ever been convicted of one small insider-trading misdemeanor in France.)
The USA political right which despises him likes to describe him as "foreign-born," "Hungarian," "Jewish." They're apoplectic that a Billionaire could blow his cash on lefty causes and Democratic candidates. Class Treason, unforgiveable, deserving swift and painful execution. (He's about Castro's age.)
While he was president of Malaysia, Mahathir used to refer to Soros as "unnamed international Jewish currency traders." Linking Hugely Rich People with Jewish and Evil goes on in the MelGibsonTequilaSphere.
(Today Mel Gibson, hyping his new movie, mentioned a related fondness for Mescal from Oaxaca. I am also fond of this fine beverage and recommend it highly to all. After you drain the bottle, eat the pickled little white worm at the bottom, for good luck and to See God.)
While you're watching the show and listening to Soros talk about this and that, compare him in your mind to Donald Trump, TV Star whose High Moment is screaming: "You're fired!"
Think of Famous Rich Assholes.
Then listen to Soros.
After the show, Leave A Comment to answer this question: Has this guy ever said, "Wash that one and bring her to my chambers."?
Oh! After you watch this, VH1's broadcasting/podcasting a new season of Flavor of Love!
