I've heard of "cooking the books", but I prefer cold hard cash.

I can't even believe someone did that. lol I bet he was so surprised to learn that cash is flammable.

Hey, upside: he has this fancy news article to remember his money by.

No, no, you put it in the drawer UNDER the oven.

The oven was turned up too high, if it was set at 451.

If a bundle of money is burned like in the picture, the bank will replace it.

In the event of a general fire in which the man's house was damaged or partially destroyed, the oven would have protected his money.

Stupidity is not putting money in an oven. Stupidity is reading tabloid news stories as if they were real news and had any relevance to anything.

I've had a $20 bill that survived a few beatings through a washer. Was so happy when I accidentally pulled it out of my pocket.

I've actually met people who don't use banks, for various reasons. Some don't trust banks for different reasons, some are "against the system", some just haven't gotten around to it. I've known a few who couldn't get a bank account, though I don't know why and I didn't ask.

That said, there's no way I could live w/o a bank. I hate to carry that much cash around, nor would I want to pay for everything in cash or have to stand around the corner store waiting for a money order!
