So do they have to pay $35 per bounced check now?  That would probably be more than the total value of their "fines"

If by upstairs, you mean the 40th floor, and doing bong hits means sipping scotch, then it's more than just a feeling.

Damn.  For once, I really DID submit this with a much better headline.  You lulled me into a false sense of security, Mods.  I'm watching you...

FTA: "The officials have questioned whether Rust hangs on to the cash to earn interest throughout the day."

Duh, exactly the same reason as when you pay for something with a CC, and they take the money within seconds, but it takes two weeks to get a refund, no matter how quickly you call.

"Others noted that it may be difficult to move a sum as large as $3.6 billion into a single account."

So there's a bag for each account at the bank, and if it gets full you have to get a bigger bag? Maybe a box?

\Didn't get mine yet. Expecting maybe enough to take the kids out for water ice as recompense for teasing me for a year then taking the house anyways.

Buy silver if you can still find it.

That is all.
