        Not true, IMO. Jono was featured and myself (I have not been in much at all). They did ask me for much more private info for the human interest part of the story, but I just didn’t want to disclose all of it, so thankful they did include me in some form.

        Yes, I agree about noobs coming, especially with some more articles that are coming.

          Fenn’s hearing isn’t what it used to be; he mostly interacts with people over email. But he did give MONEY some insight into his own personal history with money — and perhaps something more. Here’s what he said:

          “Money means more to those who don’t have any.

          When I was a kid in the late 1930s, I would mow yards around my neighborhood and get paid a quarter. It was really a big deal to me. I remember keeping my left hand in my pants pocket with the coins held tightly in my fist. I walked straight and whistled because that money represented 5 Wimpy hamburgers, or 4 burgers and a Coke, or 3 burgers, a Coke and a bag of Fritos. A cup of ice cream was a nickel. There were so many options, and the world was mine for the next two days.

          I didn’t realize it at the time but I had entered the world of commerce, and the lessons I learned about the strength of money would be very valuable to me later.”

            When I was a kid in the late 1930s, I would mow yards (cut it all down) around my neighborhood (township, homestead) and get paid a quarter. It was really a big deal to me.

              Egg on their faces! I didn't read all of the responses but 100% of what I read indicates that they don't know the riddle and without the riddle there are only two WRONG options: 1. It is a hoax or 2. it was found and not reported to at least ff
