Ugly note design

Kathy Sierra wants to know why US currency notes are so ugly compared to other countries. Hey, I want to know the same thing about our Indian notes. Will we ever see a day when the face on our currency isn't a bald guy? C'mon India, we have more to offer. How about making them serve tourism promotion duties, eh? Oh, but it will never happen. (But Kingsley doesn't think we're doing so bad.)

Come enjoy the sights and sounds of Saudi Arabia, everybody! Well, as long as you "don't expect alcohol, women come robed and everyone refrains from eating in public from dawn to dusk during the holy month of Ramadan." Oh, and "spinsters younger than 40 must be accompanied by their brothers or fathers." Wow, what a fun vacation idea.
