#2

#3

Can you post a picture of you looking through the window please? I feel a bit self-conscious now.


#4

is that what’s happening? thought it was a syringe. don’t have any left, thankfully.


#5

No they arent real
Hand all over ALL your counterfeit plastic fivers to me or face citizen arrest.


#6

Did you ever get a feel
ever get a feel
ever get a feel
of a fiver?


#7

The syringe looking thing is a picture of big ben (or rather the tower that holds big ben because big ben is a bell OF COURSE) thats printed on the window.

Alright, Dame Shirley

(Horrible feeling I’ve Wolfcastled myself)


#11

I’ve been to Romania a few times, and they have plastic money there. The texture of these seems a bit different from that though. Idk, I’m sure we’ll all get used to it.


#12

You can’t rip them or wet them either, I tried to rip mine a tiny bit but it just wouldn’t rip


#13

:smiley: okay, now THAT is in my head.


#14

#15

New DiS, new fivers.

Are we allowed to get indignant if we are handed oldfivers in change?


#16

Feels fucking horrible when you want to fold them up cos they dont stay in place. I’m refusing to use mine out of spite.


#17

im the ohgood of fivers


#18

i haven’t touched one yet but the recent scottish fivers made me feel weird


#19

Were they plastic aswell? I have a video of me scrunching one up but dis wont upload vids. It makes everything seem so unnatural and fake and weird. I feel like i finally know what my nan and gdad felt like when floppy disks were invented.

I remember getting a plastic fiver in Northern Ireland about fifteen years ago. It had a picture of the space shuttle on it that made me feel like we are all heading into a bright new space age future of hope and cooperation.

Can’t believe your stupid Brexit country has taken this long to catch up.
