Remember, these bills came about before there really were high quality scanners/copiers. It's the same thing as the little spider on the one dollar bill.

Money is like Monkey ISland, there are Easter eggs all over it. It's fun.

It's hard to say, but it's there. It's on the right hand side right above the top left corner of the border of the one. Yeah, those complicated instructions, but it's the best I could do...

Osama might of blown the T.T.(twin towers) away but his people are sufering for his actions now because the army intends to catch him and they`ll blow up as many of his villages as it takes to catch him.I wanted to visit the T.T but now I can`t.

my friend went there a couple of years ago and said the view was breathtaking (which is pretty good for my friend, trust me) so i wanna go, but i can't now. and also, the destruction of the world trade center crashed a lot of small businesses around the world including my friends dads, so that was anoynig. so osamas bombing effected a lot more people than we first though.

I heard Al-Quida is also planning an Internet attack (yes, they will use hackers) to the nuclear powerplants in USA or water treatment buildings.

...Don't ask, cause I don't know either...

Well, Osama did say he was gonna attack the Americans where they won't suspect. But I made a list of possible targets:

-White House
-Empire State Building
-The underwater tunnel from Manhattan
-More Tall Important buildings
-Nuclear Powerplants
-Statue of Liberty
-Hollywood
-Residential areas

Actually, they can attack anything, anywhere, anytime...
I really think America should improve their security!!!

if osamas going to attack the americans where they won't expect, then they wont attack the statue of liberty, hollywood, empire state building, white house or any other tall important buildings, that would just be completely obvious

my guess is, if they want to attack the americans somewhere unexpectedly, they plant a bomb in the official presidential doghouse, which would go off on the stroke of midnight and then purple paint would come out of the bomb and turn the white house into the purple house. now that's unexpected.

btw, if this was too happen in the near future, it is pure coincidence, i did not plan it nor am i or have ever been involved in the twin towers plots, the paint plot or the numerouse plots to kill Queen Elizabeth I and my name isn't Darnley.
