uuuh People will complain about anything. It doesn't look anything like the WTC and how on earth could it be considered pornographic.


Looks pretty dang hideous thou!

The 100 and 50s are already in circulation and look pretty good. In pictures they look cheap and visually distracting but consider the white section is semitransparent. Ref: http://en.wikipedia....Frontier_Series

That said, the current bills are less visually noisy and more elegant. Example, the current 20: http://en.wikipedia....nty-dollar_bill

Either way, still better than plain American bills :p

I know the bill "appears" ugly.. but a lot of the things that make it look busy are security features and are not visible most of the time.

that's one ugly and busy design... remindes me of something you'd make in MS Publisher or something

At least it isn't as bad as those archaic and dull looking US dollar bills.

^ Pornography is not always sexual.


por·nog·ra·phy
   [pawr-nog-ruh-fee]

noun

obscene writings, drawings, photographs, or the like, especially those having little or no artistic merit.


ob·scene
   [uhb-seen]

adjective

1.
offensive to morality or decency; indecent; depraved: obscene language.

3.

Art is subjective i could spend hours talking about porn the same way some guy can talk for hours about some daisies in a cracked jug.

congratulations to the Bank of Canada for telling everyone, including counterfeiters, the security measures embedded in our new (yet still ugly) bank notes

These measures aren't exactly easy to copy and they tell about them so we can distinguish the fake ones from the real.
