Urban SHTF Paracord Survival Bracelet

This is the urban survival bracelet ( need a catchier name!). I was thinking: what might you need more than fire in an urban situation if SHTF? Answer = money! Hopefully u have more than $1 though.

Cute, but I'm not sure it will be very durable. Even the tough paper of currency might not stand up to the daily wear environment. Wouldn't it be better to tuck a bill under the steel plate of a BSB?

Money belts are nice because they are so geeky that almost no one uses one.

Nice tinder... We finally have a viable substitute for cotton balls. Why didn't I think of that?

There are definitely some shortfalls on the idea. At least the bill is easily replaced
