Mark Carney, the governor of the Bank of England, has formally announced that Britain will switch to using plastic banknotes in 2016, ending 320 years of paper money.

 

Bye bye paper money.

 

Hello plastic money.

It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Interesting, but I had a good chuckle on the point that no note is counterfeit-proof and whose picture is to be on the notes. I am still trying to picture how plastic notes bend ...guess I wouldn't be able to make origami ships out of the notes when I wait in line...

It's not plastic in the conventional sense, they will still bend and feel like paper expect they're made out of a substance called Polymer.
