Zimbabwe’s troubled central bank introduced $100 billion banknotes Saturday in a desperate bid to ease the recurrent cash shortages plaguing the inflation-ravaged economy.
The bills officially come into circulation Monday, although they were on the foreign currency dealers market Saturday.
As high as they are, though, the bills still aren’t enough to buy a loaf of bread. They can buy only four oranges.
The new note is equal to just one U.S. dollar.
Once-prosperous Zimbabwe has seen an unprecedented economic meltdown since it gained independence in 1980, with the official inflation rate now at 2.2 million percent.
Gideon Gono, governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, said the new notes are for “the convenience of the banking public and corporate sector” in light of price hikes.
“The RBZ has noted with concern the unjustifiable and incessant general increases in prices of goods and services. It is therefore appealing to the business community to follow ethical business practices as well as take an interest in the plight of the general public,” Gono said in a statement dated Friday.

And here are more videos.
For long time I have always wanted to review a movie or video game.
Reason for doing it was not only wish to express my opinions to others,but also to improve my language skill.
I can say that’s was the main reason mostly.So to begin with I will tell you about my gaming history.
I was 12 years old when I made a serious step in my life and started playing video games.
If someone says that playing video games is a waste of time,there is only one thing I can say to him (or her) and that is GO TO HELL YOU C**T.
Just like most of us the first game that I played was Super Mario.The game that came in package with Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).
You all remember those yellow cartidges that made our life full of excitement and fun.Then came the Sony PlayStation.And I had to have it.
In that time it was like the ultimate gaming device that you could buy.
Sure then games were released also for PCs,but I didn’t knew anyone in that time who would chose to play games on PC instead of playing them on PS.
Maybe that’s because I live in country where the gap between rich people and homeless ones is filled with 1 800 000 regular people who couldn’t afford to buy a good PC that time,
because the wage was enough to pay your bills and buy food.
So the time past,PlayStation became more thinner and thinner and even came up with “radically” new name – PSone.
After short time they released PS2.It was in that time when the prices of PCs dropped down and PCs was affordable to ones who knew what the Microsoft Word was and knew how to use it.
Computers weren’t originally created and designed to be a gaming console or in any way replace it.
Steering wheels, joysticks and joy pads were released to make gaming more fun and enjoyable also on PC.
The following is an actual question given on a Washington State University chemistry mid-term.
The answer by one student was so “profound” that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat)or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.
One student, however, wrote the following:
