In America, you put 'In God We Trust' on your money.
In Russia, we have no money!

O, you mean they are barely enough to buy food... normally... But before spending them you also have a chance to read something in the left lower corner... not so romantic as "In God we trust", but also nice:
"Forging of the Russian Bank notes is prosecutable according to the law."

Dear Asreal, are you Russian after all? Now you sound like an American - I feel a bit confused. Now I'm replying you as if you were an American:
"O, yes, of course, a very complicated protection system we have, and quite modern (I hope), probably, they just failed to write anything more poetical"

Wow! Australia! My love country! You must not feel uprooted there even if you are Russian. Lucky... Now I feel jealous... a possessor of stupid currency...

Thanks. But I still have a question. You sounded so bitter... This suggeste a strong suspision that you are a Russian immigrant. If you are not, why so bitter on absence of russian money?
