Nothing makes you feel more like a hardened criminal than to watch a cashier, pharmacist, or whoever take their specialized black marker from the register and stripe your currency. Ahhh, the feeling of relief to see your money passed the test. Perhaps the marker wasn't used this time? And why do I get such a surprised look when I ask to borrow their marker to check my change? Hmmmm.

CNBC had a show the other night. The counterfitters found a certain paper(phone book paper) that would fool the special pen. The fake bills were incredible. Right down to the thread in it, to the watermark. Be careful accepting $100 bills. Fake ones are good anymore.
