Thoughts on money: a sketchbook made of currency

The previous post on quantifying actions was written on a twenty-dollar bill, because I didn’t have any other paper on me.

It’s fun to write your to-do notes and ideas on money. This very post was written on some money. Dollar bills are very handy when you don’t have paper on hand to write down an interesting thought. We should have sketch books that have money for the pages.

Write your thoughts in the notebook with the “money pages.” Then once you are done, rip the page out and use it as currency. So now only did you not forget your idea, but you can share it with the rest of the world! Only thing is that the images on the bills get in the way. Ugh.

But, what is worth more? The money itself or the ideas that are written on the money?

what if you write a really good idea that you want to keep secret onto a dollar bill? you really can’t spend that dollar bill or else you take the chance that some schmuck will steal your idea. So you’re losing your idea. Or you keep the dollar bill and end up paying a fine for having that idea. Geez. If you wrote your idea on a $20 or $50 bill, you’d be paying a heafty fine just for having a good idea. So you’re losing money. That’s not good. Then of course, it’s a different ball game if you want to share your idea with the world. But you’re idea may not be well-received because some people have an aversion to having their money potentially losing its value.
