Drop It Like It's Fraud: Fake Money Spotted In Huntsman

If you’re muddling through finals thinking that all of this studying is worth it because after you graduate you’ll be a successful, jet-setting, and glamorous billionaire – think again.

So unless the holy Goldman Shrine has the power to turn fake money into gold, mark “Jumping for joy after finding $100, because now you can afford that cool chair from the Starbucks furniture store...only to realize the money is fake” as the 101st reason why this week sucks.
