New 5 Spot

Kate and I were surprised to receive a strange looking 5 dollar bill as change at Rite Aid today. I guess it isn't taking long to get the new bills into circulation. I understand the need for better and more technologically advanced anti-counterfeit measures... but it seems as though our paper currency is looking more and more like what I expect to see in Singapore or Vietnam. At least they are retaining the same size for now, but the big purplish 5 on the back is just weird.
