Or, the square root of 1 = e^(i*2*pi)






Try it yourself on google calculator.

1/4%

I know, I know - but I thought it was pretty clever for a Brit who's never even seen US currency.

Here is a trick you can do with US currency. I can do the same with the queen's portrait on Australian currency. You can probably do the same with UK paper currency. You simply fold "two peaks ridges" where the fold lines go through the edges of the lips and eyebrows. It's both fun and really stupid.

I can`t post a video - but there is a certain fold of a US bill that converts the text to just read `Tender and Private` (If I recall correctly) - and I was told that a $10 or $20 passed across a bar, so folded - meant `please hook me up with a `hooker`... Never tried it - honest...

You should consult Terrence Howard and his math crystals.
