What can you do with partial money?
I was walking through a campus parking lot on my way to a pointless awards reception when I spotted a bill lying crumpled on the ground. Since hundreds of people pass through the lot every day and there was no one around who might have dropped money, there was little hope of locating the person who lost the greenback. "Neat, something a bit more useful than the three paperweights I'm about to receive," I thought to myself as I picked up the twenty. Then I unwadded it and discovered that I only had one fragment of the bill. Since I have over 2/3 of the bill, is it possible to spend it?
