Dowling Duncan and redesigning the American Dollar:

Why the size?
We have kept the width the same as the existing dollars. However we have changed the size of the note so that the one dollar is shorter and the 100 dollar is the longest. When stacked on top of each other it is easy to see how much money you have. It also makes it easier for the visually impaired to distinguish between notes.

Why a vertical format?
When we researched how notes are used we realized people tend to handle and deal with money vertically rather than horizontally. You tend to hold a wallet or purse vertically when searching for notes. The majority of people hand over notes vertically when making purchases. All machines accept notes vertically. Therefore a vertical note makes more sense.

Why different colors?
It’s one of the strongest ways graphically to distinguish one note from another.

Why these designs?
We wanted a concept behind the imagery so that the image directly relates to the value of each note. We also wanted the notes to be educational, not only for those living in America but visitors as well. Each note uses a black and white image depicting a particular aspect of American history and culture. They are then overprinted with informational graphics or a pattern relating to that particular image.

$1 – The first African American president
$5 – The five biggest native American tribes
$10 – The bill of rights, the first 10 amendments to the US Constitution
$20 – 20th Century America
$50 – The 50 States of America
$100 – The first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt. During this time he led the congress to pass more important legislations than most presidents pass in their entire term. This helped fight the economic crises at the time of the great depression. Ever since, every new president has been judged on how well they have done during the first 100 days of their term.

I get so annoyed with Americans who make fun of Canadian currency because it’s “Monopoly Money.” What? Our currency is multicoloured, see-through, holographic and almost indestructible! I guess that’s not as cool as being impossible to tell apart, wrinkly, bland and super easy to rip?

These designs are slick as hell, though.

Friendly reminder that in this day and age with modern technology like computers and internet and phones, Remus Lupin would be able to go to a muggle online university, get a GOOD degree, and have a decent chance of getting a GREAT job that pays better than probably a lot of wizarding world jobs would, where he would barely ever have to even leave his house if he didn’t want to because he could say he “works from home”

His life wouldn’t have to be ruined because of his lycanthropy like it was in the 80s and 90s

and he wouldn’t even necessarily have to live a mostly muggle life bc his coworkers wouldn’t usually see him

“If a Disney princess had night terrors, the story of Sansa Stark might be what woke her up screaming. Often overlooked in favor of her killer kid sister, the elder Stark sibling has had all her illusions about the world, and her safety in it, shattered. But her quiet, innate political shrewdness and emotional strength have enabled her to survive in a royal court that likely would have cost every other member of her family their heads. She’s the show’s best-kept secret.” Rollingstone about Sansa Stark in their list of top 40 game of thrones characters. Sansa is number 4. x (via tomlincum)

Feeling pleased with myself.
I was in a shopping centre, waiting for my mum, and I had this idea. I ran into this clothes shop and said to the assistant
“Excuse me, what year is this?”
And she was like,
“2014, are you OK?”
So I went
“YES! IT WORKED! WE DID IT!” really loudly, and ran for the door.
I was wearing jeans and a jacket (Bad Wolf Bay style) and I have been told quite a lot that I look like Rose (same hairstyle, eyes etc).
AND THEN THIS LITTLE BOY, ABOUT 9 ASKED HIS MUM
“Mummy, was that Rose Tyler? Is she going to find the Doctor?”
I heard and turned around and winked at him and ran off. I like to think that made his day.

It also made mine.

All i want in Avengers 2 is that when they’re all saying what they did since last time nat turns to Clint and says “what about you?”

and Clint just stares into space and a flashback shows him running from tons of Extremis soldiers, then flashes forward to him running from a rogue Jotunbeast left on earth, then again to him running from 50 SHIELD personnel.

and then flash forward to him feeding the dog.
