Is it common practice to give money in the form of cash to an ambassador with his hand out?
When the poorer nations of the world come to the US and ask for aid, do we hand over a briefcase with greenbacks in it?
anyone have any idea as to how much $20,000,000 in $100 denomination weighs?
each bill weighs one gram. that means twenty mil, in pounds would be about 441 pounds
6" by 2.5"
200,000 $100 bills.
my briefcase is falling apart form carrying a pad of paper, a couple of pens (Mont Blanc fancy boy pens that are larger than normal), some business
cards, some paperclips and other misc crap that fell off of whatever they originally were attached to, some mints (fresh breath is the priority of my
life), the day's newspaper and sometimes an mp3 player and/or a cell phone (both small). total weight? maybe 10 pounds when packed to the gills
for a client visit.
the damned straps broke at the metal clip long ago and the bag is falling apart.
I couldn't even imagine jamming all that cash into it.
Someone find out who makes the case that held all that money.
