I got this from Our good Friend bluey and had to share.


A Brief
Introduction to the




Zimbabwe Theory of Quantum Mathematics



Also known as



Bobenomics




The day is very hot and you are passing the Keg and Sable in Borrowdale, so naturally you go in for a nice cold beer. The barman informs you that

One beer



now costs



150 000 Zimbabwe dollars

You can pay with three crisp new $50 000 notes, still damp from the printing press. Or, if you are feeling a bit bloody-minded, and if you can still source the coins ( remember those things : they were still quite common a few years ago ) you can sit back and enjoy a beer while the barman counts out

15 000 000 Zimbabwe one cent coins

But hold it ! We have a problem.

Each Zim one cent coin weighs 3 grams

So this little lot weighs in at

45 000 000 grams

or



45 000 kgs

or



45 Tonnes



After humping 45 tonnes of coins into the pub you are going to need a helluva lot more than one beer to cool down. But don`t panic - we have a plan. Like all brilliant ideas this one relies entirely on its simplicity.

Plan B : We sell the metal and drink the proceeds

There is a small legal question about smelting coin of the realm and exporting the resulting brass ingots. However we'll let the buyer worry about that one.

There doesn't seem to be an international price for brass. Its main ingredient, copper, has recently been selling for an all-time high of US $ 5 200 a tonne on the London Metal Exchange, but we won't be greedy. For a quick sale let's discount it to

U S $ 2 600 a tonne

We are now the proud owners of

U S $ 117 000

But we still can't buy that beer as the Keg is only allowed to accept Zimbabwe currency. We must resist the temptation to change our money on the lucrative but illegal black market ( only the Governor of the Reserve Bank and Cabinet Ministers are allowed to do that ) . So we change at the prevailing interbank mid rate which is

U S $ 1 : Zim $ 99 201,58

Our heap of U S green-backs now miraculously becomes a mountain of

Zim $ 11 606 584 860

For the uninitiated the billions start at the tenth figure, counting from the right.

So if the price of beer has not increased while we were doing this calculation you can now walk back into the Keg and order





77 377 beers !


HAPPY DRINKING





P S For current inflationary reasons it is advisable to review these figures on a daily basis.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
