    I heard that the creator of Mary Poppins wasn’t a big fan of the film, and uh... I’m hoping Lin Manuel helps honor their memory. Also... am I the only one who didn’t like that the kids’ mum was a suffragette, but portrayed as a total knucklehead? I’m sorry, but uh... yeah, that’s not a way to dismiss women’s suffrage? Oh yeah, and the ‘age of men’ thing. Hopefully that’s pure satire.

    Mat, this has got to be my favorite theory because it’s a theory that has absolutely nothing to do with the plot and is incredibly unimportant. Well most of your theories are like that, but this one is probably the least important.

    If he had kept the money his whole life, he might even get much more out of it then when he would leave it in the bank. One pence from 1910 is worth around 20$ on ebay, with a span from everything from 0,60$ to up to over 200$.

    Welp as a British person now I know why no one ever tried to explain farthings, shillings, and crowns... We just liked the cute little wren on the farthing. It was also pretty fascinating learning about how our currency got so inflated, and that the government has been screwing us over for centuries... Seriously, why do we bother keeping it around...

    Believe it or not, that Tuppance is even MORE important to the second movie. And proves that Mr. Banks was right. Except it clearly doesn't rely on compound interest. More like witchcraft.

    If Michael was still alive today he would have wasted 109 years of his life to hope for the interest to go insanely high and for him to be rich. That is one sad 114 year old. Although what about inflation, the U.S has that although I doubt that the U.K does that.
