Woman Throwing Away A Million Dollars

Wed Jun 10, 2009 3:39 pm

Sorry, only in German:
http://de.news.yahoo.com/1/20090610/...che-nach-millionen-do-45cd332.html

Weird story: An Israeli women threw away an old mattrass, forgetting she had stuffed one million dollars inside. Only the next day she realised what she´d done. The mattress had already been carried away by then. The woman refused to say where she´s got so much money from and is searching the dumps of Tel Aviv now...

Truth? Urban legend?

I love these people who don't put their money in the banks and think this type of thing won't happen. The famous musician James Brown apparently was of the same mindset and buried large sums of money in the woods surrounding his South Carolina home, apparently he forgot where he buried some of it and had his relatives and associates digging all over the place. I'm not sure he found it before he died.

I would still be down the refuse dump looking for money, and wouldn't rest until I'd found it, lol.

From the thread title, I thought it was a repeat of this sort of thing:

Hydrogen is an odorless, colorless gas which, given enough time, turns into people.
