Want to be a Quadrillionaire?

Move to Zimbabwe. A friend of mine sent me this article yesterday. Basically, Zimbabwean currency has been devalued by so much that the effective exchange rate is 642 quadrillion to one. In the timeless words of Frank Barone, "Holy Crap!" Everyone thinks our currency is worthless. It isn't great, but it's a lot better than that! According to the article, a single egg would cost about $35 billion Zimbabwean dollars. That had better be a damned good omelette!
