Default Dumbass tries to pass a $360,000,000,000 check.



FORT WORTH -- An aspiring record-label owner is singing the blues after being arrested last week when bank employees said he tried to pass a $360 billion check.

When they saw all those zeroes (10 to be exact), employees at Chase Bank, 8601 S. Hulen St., called the account holder. She said that Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, is her daughter's boyfriend and that he did not have permission to take the check or try to cash it.

Fuller now faces charges of fraud, unlawfully carrying a weapon and possession of marijuana. Officers reported finding less than two ounces of marijuana and a .25-caliber handgun and magazine in his pockets.

While in a patrol car, police said, Fuller blurted out that he is starting his own record label and his girlfriend's mother gave him the money to help him out.

Apparently breaking into the music business is not cheap. But bail was less expensive: Fuller was released from Mansfield Jail on Thursday after posting $3,750.

He actually looks like a happy guy... I wouldn't have pegged him for a criminal.

The kind of fellow you would take home and introduce your mother to.

I heard this story and laughed my ass off. If he was trying to seriously pull this off, he may be one of the dumbest people I've ever heard of.

The greatest thing about this is the fact that there is NO WAY to transport that much money. He would have had to have a fleet of trucks to take it away.

$360,000,000,000 = 3,600,000,000 one-hundred dollar bills!!!

If a one-hundred dollar bill is about .069 cubic inches, 360 billion dollars in one-hundred dollar bills would take up about 20,700,000 cubic feet.

Furthermore... if the interior dimensions of the tractor trailer are 98.5 inches wide, 110 inches high and 572 inches long, the interior volume is about 516,468.3 cubic feet.

That would mean he would need over 40 tractor-trailer rigs to move the money... if the trailers were filled to capacity with JUST bills with no pallets or anything. The weight would, of course, be too much for the truck to haul though.




Someone please correct my math if I am wrong.
