Australia’s new money looks like something out of a sci-fi film.
I’ve never been to Australia, but I have dated a few Australian guys, so that’s pretty much the same thing, right? As of right now, there are four things I know for sure about the country/continent/island, and they are as follows: it produces really hot men, it is really far away, it is full of animals that can totally murder you or shove you in their pouches, and Australia’s new money looks like something that belongs in The Fifth Element.
The new Australian bank note was launched yesterday, and not only is it waterproof, un-tearable, and tactile (so blind people can identify it based on touch), but it is also covered in holograms, and is partially see-through. It even features a moving hologram of a bird flapping its wings. Basically, if you have 5 Aussie bucks, you have cheap entertainment without doing anything — you can just play with your money and feel like you’re living in a futuristic time warp. Thanks, Down Under.

In this instance (and probably a few others), I feel bad for the United States. We may be able to go about our days without fear of an albatross carrying a venomous snake swooping from the sky to steal our children, but our money is made out of cotton fibers and that’s getting kind of lame. But I guess the vintage-loving hipsters are keeping that a thing, right?
I think Australia wins this round, with their money from the future.[ via ]
