    Talking What a ****ing idiot

    COVINGTON, Georgia (AP) -- A Georgia woman who tried to use a fake $1 million bill to buy $1,675 worth of merchandise at Wal-Mart was arrested, and police later found two more of the bills in her purse.

    I can't believe that she tried to use it. nearly everyone knows that the U.S treasury doesn't make 1 million dollar bills the highest bill that is made by the U.S treasury is the 100 dollar bank note.

    Not true. As per the US Treasury's Website FAQ, the highest ever made was $100,000.

    In circulation, however, the highest is $100. They've apparently discontinued the use of $500, $1000, $5000 and $10000

    While these notes are legal tender and may still be found in circulation today, the Federal Reserve Banks remove them from circulation and destroy them as they are received.

    Ahh that happend here in Georgia. Stupid? You mean walmart is stupid right ? The Walmart here in Tompson & I think a few in Augusta has these automated things... you scan things by yourself under the machines then pay VIA: cards. The idea is the employees will be busy doing other things pluse no on can complain about cashiers being to slow. Well anyways a few peaple have managed to scan their stuff then walk away without paying because as soon as you scan the stuff it runs through their databases... this makes it so the things around the door won't ring off when peaple try walking out with stuff. There have been alot of peaple who have managed to walk out of the stores with large carts filled with things. Funny ain't it?

    |The|Specialist: We have those machines too.

    But, there are "guards" at the doors. They check your receipt and do a quick look to make sure that the the merchandise in your cart is the same as that on your receipt. People were also taking a tag off a cheap dollar item and taping it to their hand. When they scanned... it killed the sensor alarm, but rang up the item for much less than it really is.
