    How bad is inflation in Zimbabwe?
    Well, consider this: at a supermarket near the center of this tatterdemalion capital, toilet paper costs Z$417.
    No, not per roll. Four hundred seventeen Zimbabwean dollars is the value of a single two-ply sheet. A roll costs Z$145,750. For untold numbers of Zimbabweans, toilet paper and bread, margarine, meat, even the once morning cup of tea have become unimaginable luxuries for the Zimbabweans. All are casualties of the hyperinflation that is roaring towards northwards, a rate usually seen only in war zones

    What is the Inflation rate in Zimbabwe???

    According to BBC "The rate of inflation in Zimbabwe jumped to just over 11,250,000% in June 2008. However, experts believe the actual rate of inflation may be much higher.

    I remember years ago Howard Stern had a segment on his radio show called "who wants to be a Turkish millionaire." Just answer the question correctly and you can win 1 million Turkish liras. One caller asked how much exactly that was. Howard said "I don't know, but I have the note in my hand."

    Dude, the Zim Dollar no longer exists. They use USD or South African Rands.

    A friend of mine has a 100 Trillion Zim dollar bill:

    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.
