Money Experiment! May. 18th, 2004 @ 01:29 PM

Lets try this just to see if it works.
On every peice of paper money that you get, write your username and "Newgrounds.com" on it. Lets see how long it takes to get another one of the users to get one!

Actually, that would be really fucking cool to end up getting a piece of money with someone elses name on it... But don't you think NG may get in trouble aftera while, if there is a shit load of money with, newgrounds.com on it?


I've been refurbished and reissued, prepackaged and precooked, decontaminated and deloused, but I still smell, sound, look and feel like shit.

New to the video game forums?

That sounds like a classic idea, actually. A frontpage post would make it more useful, because only the BBS are participating here and it'd take hundreds of years for anyone to get anything.

Maybe I could graffitti 'Newgrounds' on a national train and whoever comes across it first is the winner.

I wanna engrave it into half dollars...

But seriously, I think this is pretty cool. But how many users are foreign? That will take away from the likelihood of it working. Not to mention the not-so-regular users. I think it'd be a good front page idea, though.

Money with shit written on it is till money

so good idea!

I got an even better experiment:

Lets see how rich the Newgrouds users are

by giving all you money to me!

No....?

But to be serious, good idea! but not all NG users will see / care / know about it...

That sounds cool. It doesn't effect english notes if there is writing on it but i'm not sure about other countries.

well I allready carved punk666 on a lot of schoolbenches and stuff, also carved it on coins, not yet on bills, and yeah, maybe I could add newgrounds.com after my nick next time...but I live in Belgium and I have Euros... so not likely that an other user will see my nick on one

Make sure you write 'EvilJelly' on a bench in Market Street or something. I'll write 'Earfetish' beneath it, and it can be one of those moments...

haha sounds sweet.. in dk we can, in theory anyways, cut 49% of, and it would still be worth what it's worth.. So writing on money shouldn't be a prob here :D
it would kind'a suck however if someone was to log into my account and change the password :( but to hell with that..

It's a great idea. From now on, I'm going to put 'NG BRS' on the back of every note I get in the bottom left corner.

sooner or later the US treasury is going to catch on if there's enough of them. defacing bills is an offence of some sorts, I wouldnt be caught doing it.

You can do it to UK money, so long as you don't hurt the queen's face (I think). Bank people put numbers on the counterfeit 'hold up to the light' thing...

I heard somewhere it isn't illegal to write around the edges of bills, above the "In God We Trust", and below the "One Dollar". (See picture)
It's a good idea, I'll be sure to try it.
