Out-of-the-ordinary news from the folks at "Studio B"...
A few Japanese bigwigs just had to have them. They had to own a piece of history. So they shelled out 150 million yen — that's about $1.3 million American dollars — to own a rare piece of Americana: the $1 million bill.
The guy who was selling them said they were printed in 1928 and showed George Washington standing in front of the Tokyo hotel. Turns out they were "made in Japan." Bogus bills. And the thief reportedly walked away with millions in real money.
According to the Treasury, the largest U.S. denomination ever produced was $100,000 in the '30s.
Stamped With Love
From romantic dinners to flowers to chocolates, people are telling their loved ones how much they care for Valentine's Day. But some folks go the extra mile to say "I love you."
Thousands of people send their cards out early for a special postmark. The spot: Valentine, Nebraska.
The Valentine post office says each year it gets tens of thousands of cards, letters and boxes — some from as far away as England and the Netherlands.
Stealing a Stone ... Wall
The co-owner of an outdoor store in Tennessee thought something was missing. But he just couldn't put his finger on what it was. Then he got a call from police near Memphis airport who wanted to know whether he was missing a 6,000-pound, 30-feet high rock climbing wall.
Turns out someone managed to steal the $30,000 solid stone monster from the store lot. The owner says he has no idea how they got it out, or why someone would possibly want to take it in the first place.
