Where's George?
« on: January 23, 2012, 01:48:50 PM »
The website Where's George? let's people track US dollar bills as they travel the world. If you receive a stamped bill go to the website and enter the bill's serial number and the ZIP Code where you received it. The website will show you where it has been. Of course, not everybody will bother to enter the data or even notice their bills have been stamped, so the bills' history will suffer from quite a bit of selection bias.

For an example, this bill has been exchanged in Qatar and Germany.

You can elect to receive email notifications when a bill you have reported gets reported later by someone else.

I first heard of this a few days ago and found my first Where's George bill today. This is its history.

I've gotten two Where's George bills in the last couple of years.
Stay thirsty for knowledge my friends.
