Side note to the previous post: In doing some quick verification of a thing or two, I stumbled upon perhaps the weirdest file format ever created: The .WWF format, which is supported by the World Wildlife Fund’s German chapter. Here’s what it is: It’s a PDF file that you can’t print, in an effort to save paper. Because clearly this is an effective way to solve the problem of paper waste. Guess the Google drone thing is another attempt by the WWF to be on top of random technological trends.

It only took, like, eight seasons, but Dunder Mifflin is finally a real paper company.
If they sell enough reams, the ‘Nard Dog gets a tattoo on his butt.  :-)

Best. Christmas. Present. Ever.

More on cotton paper and Canada’s plastic money

idroolinmysleep said: To be strict, the US “paper” banknotes aren’t made of paper (the wood-pulp variety) either. They’re made of cotton, which is why they survive going through the laundry.

» We say: While it’s a stronger material, it still tears, can still suffer water damage and doesn’t last nearly as long. You can also buy 100 percent cotton paper at an office superstore and play around a little bit with your inkjet printer if you wanted to counterfeit. So, IMHO, cotton notes are still considered “paper” in the traditional sense, even if they aren’t made quite the same way. (Also of note: We added a note to the last post about Australia, which also uses plastic money.)
