I already have an EBT account but I got tired soon. I had a hit after I stopped. However I found out that my region has a very high hit rate (1 in every 700 bills). I think that most bills are entered by bank tellers who handle hundereds of bills every day.
I read that Luxembourguese notes don't exist yet even if the R was reserved for them.

Would you have acceptedthis note?

must be from Greece.

I remember drahmas, they were usually so worn out that above example of 10€ note would be considered pretty good.

You didn't get the point. Look more careful.

Off course! The crooker who made it wasn't enough smart to use a real code! Notice also the lack of security features, just normal printing paper! For police and bank tellers wasn't so difficult discover to him, but many common people would be screwed.
Surely CNLG would have noticed it.

Sorry, little involontary misspelling, maybe because I was typing with a LG smart phone
Since you entered thousands of notes did you ever find something counterfeit or with printing errors?

I've entered tons of €50 notes with the most famous printing mistake up to date: The one in the printing code which displays M04x as MO4x. This lasted for 4 sheets, from M043 to M046. M047 is correct again. The last known Spanish €50 sheet up to today is M049.

Meanwhile in Texas:
A 13-y.o. girl (3 years before the legal driving age there) try to steal her brother's car to meet a "boyfriend" that she knew online and lives more than 1000km away from her.

So you can start getting lessons at 15 but only get a license at 16? In NL it's theory from 16, lessons from 16,5 and license from 17.

No. I just looked it up. A new regulation that came in force recently. You can obtain a valid drivers license on your 17th, but will have to have an older person traveling with you, until you're 18.

The legal driving age of 16 in the United States is a generalization. There is no country-wide driving age, it's all up to the states.

You can start driving at age 14 in some states.
