How do you know you set fire to it then?.. Maybe it blew away or someone stole it?

Well, It could be that. It was a gas powered soldering iron, though. There was a pile of flames on my desk, and a burning letter. Next to the burning letter was ONE 20 note. I had a 20 and a 10 on my desk as well.. they are nowhere to be seen, now :| There is a pile of ash on my desk - But no traces of the metal parts of the money! :S

Yea, i read about the Australian notes that are like waterproof and tear proof etc. Really cool i thought.

In the UK there is a strip of foil down the note as an anti-counterfitting measure.

Well Luckily,If you stick the note together it is still legal tender and still useable but if you break the plastic seal in the corner,your screwed.
