I read that it was 0300 Crimea local time (EET/GMT +2 Hours).
ETA: I also see articles that say 0500 local time, which would be 0300 GMT. Not sure which is accurate.

I've been using a Merkur razor with Feather blades. I have really enjoyed this setup. I almost always take a shower pre-shave, but don't use any specific pre-shave products. I use the Taylor of Old Bond St Lavender applied with an Escali badger brush, but will be trying the Proraso soon. I use a...

[quote]I'm missing something. What's the $9,999 reference?[/quote]
It's the highest cash transaction you can have without having to submit an CTR (Currency Transaction Report) to the IR. It's actually $10,000 as the CTR is required for transactions OVER 10k, so 10,000.00 wouldn't require one, but...

[quote]Then where do they keep it?[/quote]
Usually at the regional Federal Reserve branch.
Banks send off and order currency as necessary.
I've been in branches with as little as 120k in cash on hand. The average was around 200-300k....

They said the limit...

Hiring or firing any employee based strictly on race or gender would be a very bad business decision. If allowed to run their course, these things have a funny way of working themselves out.
