I stumbled across this story on Mysterious Universe, who as always like to put a Fortean spin on everything, but regardless, an interesting story worth sharing.


Metaphorically speaking, money has been falling from nowhere in Kuwait ever since oil was discovered in the Middle East. However, a large amount of paper money fell from the sky over Kuwait City for real recently and so far, no one has come forth with an explanation or to claim it.

The rain of cash occurred on the afternoon of February 11. Before the shower of buying power was over, an estimated 2 to 3 million AED (United Arab Emirates dirham) worth between $544,000 and $817,000 (US dollars) fell, mostly in 500 AED notes worth about $136 each. Witnesses say the rain of cash fell for a few minutes, stopping traffic as people ran to pick up the bills.

Appearantly, according to the Mysterious Universe Post, this has happened a couple of times throughout history in a few random countries.

Maybe someone at the top of the Burj Khalifa inadvertently dropped a briefcase full of money?

Interesting that the money mostly came under the form of 500 notes.

They’d take me into the interrogation room and shine a bright light
in my face and go, “Where’d you get this money?”

“It fell out of the sky.”

“No, seriously.”

“It fell out of the sky.”

“No, seriously….”

Another reason Bitcoin is a better form of money than papper,
it can't be counterfeited.

I hate paper money. Gold is always better.

But money is just so has-been anyway... I wish it could rain ice cream instead.

One thought I had was that if you were to rob a large amount of cash from a bank or somewhere else, but didn't want the bills being easily tracked back to you when you start spending them, you could throw a small portion of them all over so that there would be too many leads for investigators to follow. Although I'm not sure how many big bank jobs go down in Kuwait or the UAE, or if UAE money is as easily traceable as the USD.

Counterfeits are also an idea, as is some sort of distraction while something else is going down.

Very interesting for sure! I wouldn't mind a little money rain here, we just seem to get the normal wet kind.

I think it was a rich sheik giving back to the people,

A million is nothing for some of them, they pay more than that to have britney spears poop on their chest.

With my luck if it rained money on me it would likely be nickels and they would beat me to death at 5 cents per hit.

I would be checking to see if Hans Gruber is hanging by his ankles out a building window while his briefcase empties held by John McClane .
