The day before yesterday I was catching a taxi and by the will of fate my sexy ass caught this black cab. It happened to be a very popular TV show where people sit into the taxi and have to answer the drivers questions to earn money. The questions last until the cab reaches your point of destination. You are given 3 'lives' which you lose if you provide an incorrect answer. You also have 3 additional bonuses: an internet search, call a friend and ask a stranger. So when this taxi stops some lady enters the taxi, asks me to sign a contract and shit and we head off. My journey lasted about 10 minutes and I used up all my bonuses and lost one life. In the end the driver asked me to answer an optional bonus question, which if answered correctly would double the sum of my earned money, otherwise everything won would by nullified. I doubled the sum easily, took the money from the driver-host and after saying that I'll make everybody a bit richer I burnt everything in front of the camera. The amount I burnt was approximately 450 US dollars. The driver's facial expression was beautiful. Today I received a call to receive my prizes. When I came to the studio they gave me a check to pay a tax for all the money I won and gave me some shit from their sponsor. They said my episode won't be aired because burning local currency is offensive. **** them or do you think they're right?

I've read that the money they give you on Cash Cab right then and there after you get done is just fake money

Wait why is it illegal? Burning money reduces inflation.
i don't know why i feel so dry

Was the question: How do you ignite a pile of money?

People need to chill, its his money man (assuming this is true). If he feels the need to burn it away trying to get a reaction from people let him. I actually find it pretty funny I don't get why everyone's so uptight

Presumably because it costs the government money to print it, and they want to be able to control inflation.

Dick move by the way TS, there are plenty of people who could have used the cash if you didn't want it.

It's illegal, and frankly pointless.

How does anyone manage to make any money when it costs money to create money? Frankly it seems like making any sort of net profit would be impossible.

The money on they give on hands is real. You just gotta return it when you exit the cab and they'll give you about 90% of what you won after the show is aired. I told the lady that they can take it out of my prize.
I'm actually thinking that by destroying money I make each and every holder of the currency a bit richer, as the currency becomes more expensive. It's like I'm fighting inflation, no?

I can see why they don't air it though if it's true

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Money_burning

while you're technically right, you probably made everyone richer by around $0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001

spreading a measly 450 dollars worth of burned currency over 350 million people doesn't do much except waste 450 dollars you couldve done something with lol

Why would I want to lie?
My philosophy: I'm pretty good with the money I have, and I'll be good without the money I could've earned.

Edit: and if the shit I did was illegal I'm pretty grateful for them not airing it with me having enough trouble with the cops already

I do agree that burning it was a pretty dick-ish move.
I'd say that I have pretty low morals, and even I would have given it all to a homeless person if I didn't want it.

But you'd be better if you had an extra 450 dollars.
Pros of having an extra 450 dollars: You have an extra 450 dollars.
Cons of having an extra 450 dollars:

But in that scenario I would've helped only one homeless person, but by destroying it I secretely helped a million bazillion people.
PS - I bet that homeless dude would've bought a bunch of vodka and died in the park anyway
