my dad told me that when he was a kid he used to pop out the middle of £2 coins and take the outside to a bank and they would replace it with a new £2 coin, he then went to another bank close by and gave them the center piece and they replaced that one too, so he doubled his money everytime he did this.

most countries have a policy where they'll replace one or the other. The banks were just ******* up. Like, if you have more than half of any bill in the US, you can exchange it for a full bill at a bank, but less than 50% is worthless.
User avatar #83 to #42 - killerliquid (12/24/2013) [-]
For the US it's 2/3 of a bill or bigger will get it replaced.
User avatar #82 to #42 - personz (12/24/2013) [-]
actually isn't the standard is more than 3/5 of the bill to get the full face value, and more than 2/5 but less than 3/5 for half the face value?
#75 to #42 - Rascal (12/24/2013) [-]
Couldn't you just tear a bill and half and turn in the two halves?
User avatar #142 to #75 - dunkleosteus (12/24/2013) [-]
I don't think they'll replace exaxctly 1 half, only greater than a half. The other comments say it's less precise than that though.

User avatar #5 to #4 - dutchrudderr (12/23/2013) [-]
I'm 18 mate, my dad told me 'when he was younger' he used to do this, i just presumed he was a kid cos who the **** does that at 40-odd.

UK Economy confirmed for broken.

Oh wait. The Tories already done that for us.

I've heard the name of the "Tories" but am unaware of their presence in "Breaking the United Kingdom's Economy". Could you explain, please?
User avatar #64 to #61 - elmarcocfc (12/24/2013) [-]
You see my good man, the Tories (Conservatives) are not only ******* up every other aspect of their governmental policies, but for a good example, they want us, the UK, to leave the European Union. Not only with this **** up trade, but if we are ever in serious debt, it will be harder than it is now to ask for bailouts. Like just now, Ireland were bailed out and they are independent.
User avatar #65 to #64 - trollofhalo (12/24/2013) [-]
So they are basically ******* themselves or ******* the lower class?
User avatar #66 to #65 - elmarcocfc (12/24/2013) [-]

As to you.

As a future nurse for the NHS I despise David Cameron for what he is trying to do to the NHS and the ******* daily mail for spreading their propaganda **** about the NHS.

I agree. And exactly why I'm against Scottish Independence. The ******* NHS will be privatized here if it happens, we'll have to pay for it like America. And no big-headed pro-Independent arsehole seems to have a problem with that.
User avatar #81 to #79 - TheseChocodiles (12/24/2013) [-]
I live in Northern Ireland, so the south of Ireland kind of have a NHS system going, so I'm still hoping that Ireland can be reunited some day, and I am pretty sure it will happen. However for now we are a part of the UK and as long as we are I hope to god the NHS is not ****** with, because it's one of precious things the UK have.
#98 to #81 - Rascal (12/24/2013) [-]
Good luck Ireland. We all know that Ireland needs to re-unite.

Love,

TBH... you cant explictly blame the Tories... the UK government is the same group of guy who went to same bunch of schools just wearing different color ties saying how much they love you more than the other guys.

viva le revolution!

I do not disagree, I am just saying the Tories are the worst of the ******* worst and need to be deported.

Been a recession going on for a good 6-7 years now mate. We're holding our own, but we're one disaster away from a ******** .
How are you holding up?
User avatar #121 to #120 - brrigg (12/24/2013) [-]

mhm. and i'm gonna hazard a guess, members of parliament aren't feeling the recession in the slightest?
User avatar #126 to #124 - elmarcocfc (12/24/2013) [-]
Considering ******* David Cameron (Our cunt of a Prime Minister) can afford fancy ******* dinner parties for his dickhole friends, you're about right bang on the money their bud.

yeah, when the people responsible for fixing the economy aren't affected by it, they have no incentive to actually fix the ******* economy. meanwhile our veterans just lost their benefits just so that members of congress could keep theirs. the system is so ******* broke it's not even funny.

We need a revolution. Like seriously,

I couldn't have been the only one who heard the primary school legend that if you put a two pound coin in the microwave the above happens. Never tried it however, I can't imagine sticking a coin in a microwave has favourable consequences.

I did this with a one euro coin last year.
Just put it on top of a bottle, preferably glass, with an opening that will let the center part fall through, and just strike the center. use a nail or something
User avatar #14 to #1 - Lilstow (12/24/2013) [-]
i've done it before. despite being american

i just rested it on top of a vice just the right distance apart so when i hit it with a hammer the middle part would come out.

That happened in the 90's on the news in Mexico to a journalist who was presenting the new 10 pesos coins.
