    Glitch hits Visa users with more than $23 quadrillion charge

    A few Visa users were accidentally hit with charges of 23 quadrillion dollars. One of them was charged that much for a pack of cigarettes.

    Not long ago, before the government went out of control on its spending, it was called 10 bucks.

    The biggest question is:


    What kind of pansy is this guy? He's sweating over what was most obviously a computer burp? Where did he grow up, Zimbabwe, where such absurd figures are close to reality? Did his mother hold his hand under the hot water for using a spoon to dig to China, or what?

    You realize this is how they make money right?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
