The $10 bill, as everyone knows, features President Alexander Hamilton—undeniably one of our greatest presidents and most widely recognized for establishing the country’s financial system.

Signs you don’t live in a free country: Due to a glitch, results from the presidential election are announced before voting has even started. Sounds unlikely, right? Well, that’s what happened this week in Azerbaijan.
