Australia Just Printed 46 Million Bank Notes With A Typo—Oops

AJ+/Twitter and @Maddingly9/Twitter

Australia's central bank has taken responsibility for typos on 46 million banknotes after a radio station posted an image of the microscopic error on social media.


Triple M radio posted on Instagram a magnified photograph of a 50-dollar (£27) note showing the misspelling of “responsibility".

The word appears three times on the note and the third “i" is omitted every time.


The Reserve Bank of Australia said the spelling error will be corrected at the next print run later this year. The latest version of the notes was released in October.



Australia's hi-tech polymer notes are among the most difficult in the world to counterfeit due to their extraordinary level of detail, and the technology has been exported to other countries.


The 50-dollar note is known colloquially as a “pineapple" because of its yellow hues, and bears an image of the first woman elected to an Australian parliament, Edith Cowan.



The misspelling appears in an extract from her first speech to the Western Australia state parliament in 1921.


Some wondered if it wasn't intentional.

Why didn't someone suggest that to the Australian mint before they admitted the error?

People also wondered about to-day and emphasise. One is the accepted spelling from the time of Cowan's speech (to-day) and the second is American versus British English (emphasize versus emphasise).


Not everything is bad about the error though. Don't these things become collector's items?

Game of Thrones fans are a passionate lot.

For eight seasons they wrung their hands and argued back and forth about who would sit on the iron throne and rule the seven kingdoms in the end.

But it turns out, the show may have told us right from the beginning.

Yes, if you've been on the internet, you know that everybody, even Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the 8th and final season of Game Of Thrones.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

Alright ladies and gentlemen, time for a pop quiz.

The first question is, what do the lyrics...

"And I am telling you..."
"Once there was a way to get back homeward"
"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
