Police in Torrington, Connecticut pulled a man over for failing to stop at a red light, which is exactly the thing you don't do when you have $10,000 worth of marijuana in your trunk. While that alone is a bad enough idea, to make it worse, the man was under the influence and, when he ran the red light, he nearly hit a marked police car.
Police in Victoria, Texas seized more than 218 grams (7.7 ounces) of ecstasy pills from a man during a traffic stop. They look a lot like Smarties. Sorry for making you wish you had almost half a pound of delicious Smarties.
Redditor zombienm was a bank teller, and the bank's rules stipulated that tellers weren't allowed to have more than $10,000 in their drawer at one time. He managed to snap this shot of what $10,000 bundled up looks like in hundred dollar bills vs. one dollar bills, which has brought up a very important question for us all: If you ever got $10,000 cash, how would you want it? Subtle enough to fit in your pocket or large enough to potentially roll in if you threw it on the bed?
Truffles, a type of mushroom, are an expensive commodity, but white truffles are even more so because they're extremely rare. The highest quality ones come from Italy's Piedmont region, where they're only available two months of the year. In this picture, chef Frank Prinzano holds a .4 kg (14.5 ounce) white truffle worth $9,864 that he smuggled in from Italy. Though he could have bought it above board from a truffle importer, importers often trick chefs by selling them inferior truffles from other countries.
This bottle of Armand de Brignac Brut Rose Champagne NV 6L Rated 91 W&S is worth $9,999.98 and is not to be confused with Armand de Brignac Brut Rose Champagne NV Rated 91 W&S, which is worth a measly $499.98.The champagne, nicknamed "Ace of Spades," is produced by a company owned by Jay Z, which may explain why in her video for "Feeling Myself," Beyoncé dumped a bottle into a hot tub. Though fans weren't impressed with her wasting money that frivolously,given that her husband owns the company, even if she did pour the more expensive bottle down the drain, it definitely didn't cost her that much to get it. Unless Jay Z is so cheap that he'd charge his wife $10,000 for a bottle of champagne.
Though the Imgur user who posted this offered no explanation, given that there are 89 graphing calculators (assuming there's one behind the dog's butt) and most graphing calculators are just over $100, the math works out. Though it was hard to do because someone took all the calculators.
Imgur user Tiroch bought these model trains at an estate sale for $900 and estimates that he would get $10,000 for the collection. And, given that I don't know anything about trains, I will take his/her word for it.
Ambergris, solidified whale vomit from the digestive tracts of sperm whales, is used in perfumes. It's made up of mostly undigested squid beaks and, when it oxidizes in salt water, takes on a sweet fragrance which is used to help scents last longer.
