Dublin artist Frank Buckley built a house from 1.4 billion euros ($1.8 billion) worth of decommissioned and shredded notes of the currency. The three-room house with a bedroom, bathroom, and living room is Buckley's way of making a statement about the crisis the European economy finds itself in, and Ireland's out-of-control construction boom of the last decade that stands as his country's major contribution to the current continent-wide fiscal emergency.

I'm surprised no one has tried to rob it

Where did he find that much out of circulation money?

Because he's the hero The Pit deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Anus.

And this is why the world hates Europe so much.

i dont understand why people think of Europe as one country. Europe is strickly geographical, just as China is part of Asia and the United States are part of America.

Ahhhh no, the money was decommissioned meaning that it wasn't in circulation and that it was worthless because it no longer represents the gold that commissioned cash does, so essentially he made a house out of recycled paper

I hate to be a nazi, but TS completely misused the word 'literally' in the OP. It irritates me.

I put a ton of my capital into SW Airlines... The next day, THE NEXT DAY these nutters fly into the WTC. What the hell? Apparently no one wanted to fly anymore, and I was like "What gives? God damnit Osama, let me win a fuggin' game!"

Euro's are sh*t, should have used GBP


It's only a matter of time before the Euro dies anyway.



Yes, because the British economy is really great at the moment...with the whole 'If you smile long enough into the face of God you'll shit money' mindset that the Gov. seems to have at the moment.
