YAP STONE MONEY SEEN ON SURVIVOR EPISODE

Max Spiegel writes: "I don't know if any other E-Sylum
readers watch Survivor on CBS, but this past week's episode
featured a trip to the Micronesian island of Yap as the prize
for the winning team. After taking a quick plane ride, they
were wined and dined Yap-style. In a few of the scenes, they
showed several of the famed Yap stones, in varying sizes.
Although the stones now serve a decorative purpose, they used
to be one of the more unusual forms of currency. If anyone is
interested in watching that particular episode of Survivor,
I believe you can still access it online or on CBS On Demand."
