Did you know it was a regional thing? Just for fun, here's a video on the various ways people count currency.

Well I never! How on earth did you come across that?

At the moment, I dig my hand into my pocket and count the shrapnel which fits in my hand Sad

Nicki- Like so many of the odd things I enjoy, it came from BoingBoing.net. You never know what will turn up there. It's completely ecclectic. Some of the stuff is so cutting edge techno I have NO idea what they're talking about. Some of it is highly useful like this belt I just ordered for my son after finding out about it there. (Note 2 kinds of screwdrivers, a bottle opener and a wrench.)

Some of it is odd or silly like the cash counting clip. And some of it is genuine news that you're not likely to hear anyplace else like this story that L. Ron Hubbard, basically, plagiarized Scientology from a 1934 German work. http://www.boingboing.net/2008/02/27/l-ron-hubbard-plagia.html
