Where's George?

So, Im buying ice cream for my family the other day, and on one of the bills I get back from the cashier, I find:

See where I've been
Track where I go next
Turns out that among the many corners of the web, there is a site that has been tracking--since 1998--U.S. currency as it makes its way around North America. My particular bill ($1, series 1999, serial # B33262579P) was previously logged in Streamwood, IL about a year and a half ago, so it's travelled 1,713 miles in that time to get in my pocket. That's an average of 3.5 miles a day.

Worthless and fascinating, like so much that occupies the web.
