The Disney studio employs not only funny, but also resourceful people who are always not averse to joking. One of their favorite tricks is to complement their cartoons with small references to each other.
But they do it so imperceptibly that untrained viewers often do not see these funny details. And this is not surprising. Some chips flicker in the frame so quickly that it is worth blinking at this moment - and now you have already missed everything.
When attention-to-detail studios like Disney and Pixar release another project that hits theaters around the world, they often tweak some of the details for audiences in specific regions of the world.

When did money appear
Starting this curious topic, we simply cannot leave the reader without a little historical educational program on how and when means of payment appeared. Moreover, finance is one of the whales on which the well-being of the whole society and each of us personally relies.
How money appeared
From the very beginning, people lived in communities - small groups of 30-50 people, sometimes more or less. Living together was safer: property and food were common, we defended ourselves from predators together, we could share responsibilities.
Everything changed when, at one of the stages of development, private property began to arise in families within the community. From that moment on, it was impossible to simply take a toy from a child and give it to younger compatriots. The baby's mother had to give the teenager's mother something in return, such as a jug of milk from a personal goat and some berries that her husband found while hunting.
Or imagine another situation: some hill tribes raised sheep for wool. The communities that lived at the foot of the mountains, on the seashore, were engaged in fishing. There was an exchange between the two communities: some shared tasty fish, others warm wool.
In other words, the basic principle of money as an idea lies in the phrase "you - to me, I - to you"
The ancestors of modern monetary units were items of barter or, as they would say today, barter. Sometimes cattle, grain, meat, necessary household items became the object of exchange.
An interesting fact: in the cold latitudes - Siberia, Alaska, Canada - ancient people exchanged furs. In South America and tropical islands, pearls and mother-of-pearl shells were often used as money.
However, it was quite difficult to exchange only natural products from your farm. This is how money appeared as a neutral medium of exchange with a nominal or actual value.
The emergence of real coins and banknotes
The very first money dates back to the seventh century BC. These were metal, minted coins. Their advantages over the means of exchange were obvious:
- money is lighter and smaller than, for example, bales of furs;
- people themselves determined their equivalent.
In order for coins to be accepted in a neighboring settlement, their value must be universally recognized. Therefore, over time, coins began to be made from gold and silver, and their value correlated with the value of these metals.
Paper banknotes appeared relatively recently: at the beginning of the 10th century AD in China. They became a progressive invention for their time. The money was used as shares or vouchers - an obligation to give out "real" coins.
For many thousands of years, mankind has waged wars, civilizations have been saved and collapsed - all for the sake of wealth and small copper, silver or gold rounds.
Facts about money
How much money - so many interesting facts. You can find amazing stories about banknotes and coins. Let's share with you the most interesting ones.
Sung in myths and films, the citizens of the ancient Greek state believed that demonstrating wealth was unworthy behavior. At the legislative level, the Spartans banned public manifestations of inequality between the poor and the rich.
The authorities carried out a monetary reform, as a result of which, instead of round coins, pelanors appeared in circulation. These were metal products - iron or bronze. Anything else is strictly prohibited. If gold or silver coins were found with a Spartan, then the criminal could even be executed.
Goldsmiths of Ancient Russia
The very "spool", which is "small, but expensive." This is the first gold monetary unit of Ancient Russia; archaeologists have found only 11 such coins. The spools are kept in the museums of the country, and one of them can be seen in the Hermitage.
Prince Vladimir is depicted on the reverse of the minted coin, and the face of Christ is depicted on the obverse.
Historians have found a lot of evidence that the coin was produced for a rather short time, but was used as a full-fledged means of payment in international trade: several gold coins were found in Pinsk (Belarus), and these territories did not belong to Russia of the indicated time.
Why money is "money"
Although historians do not have 100% accurate data, however, many experts believe that the word comes from the Turkic designation of tenge coins. The Mongol-Tatar yoke left a big mark on Russian culture, and this is just one of the imprints.
The word "ruble" comes from the verb "cut". So they divided the silver coin - the hryvnia. Otherwise, it was difficult to use it because of the weight of 400 grams. The hryvnia was "cut" into small pieces.
The “penny” became such when, during the time of Ivan IV, money was issued with the image of a horseman with a spear in his hand.
Oxford scientists found that the surface of European banknotes contains, on average, about 26,000 bacteria. Danish is the most "dirty": more than 40 thousand microorganisms were found on it, and 32 thousand on the surface of the francs.
By the way, more than 30 thousand bacteria were found on the surface of the ruble.
Euro sheltered only 11,000 bacteria. One could argue about the youth of the euro, but in fact all this is due to the processing of banknotes with a special composition.
The Chinese "yuan" became the champion - 180 thousand bacteria were found on its surface. If it were not for the Danish krone and the ruble, one would think that the number of microbes correlates with the population.
On the banknote of 20 Swedish krona - not a politician, not a former president and not a famous scientist. The image of Pippi Longstocking, an unusually strong girl from Astrid Lindgren's fairy tale, was placed on the banknote.
The German banknote of 1000 marks was withdrawn from circulation, but remained an interesting cultural monument, because it depicted the Brothers Grimm - world-famous creators of fairy tales, linguists and linguists.
In Polynesia, symbols of the local culture are depicted on banknotes - for preservation and promotion. So, in the late 80s of the last century, a banknote was issued on the Cook Islands with the image of a naked girl riding a shark.
There is a legend according to which a simple girl became the beloved of the lord of the ocean. A shark sailed after her to deliver her to her future husband on a remote island. On the way, the beauty began to feel thirsty and broke a coconut on the head of a fish to drink milk from the fruit. The shark was offended by such sudden treachery, and she threw the bride of the lord of the ocean into the sea. The girl, meanwhile, remained alive - she was saved by marine life. The legend remains popular to this day.
In a number of countries, for example, in Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, the Maldives, paper banknotes are no longer used. Instead of paper, plastic is now used there, although paper money is still a means of payment.
It turns out that many states are switching to plastic, including the UK, Israel, Mexico, Singapore, etc.
The fight against fakes
The authorities of all countries have long struggled with counterfeit money that could undermine the well-being of the economy.
An interesting solution was proposed at one time by the American politician Benjamin Franklin (by the way, he was never president of the United States). In 1739, during the creation of the national currency, the word "Pennsylvania" was specially printed on banknotes with an error. According to the founding father, fakers will automatically correct the spelling for the correct one, and so get caught.
There are a lot of interesting facts in the history of money, and we will continue to share them in the future.
