    A Luca is the same as saying a "G" in English. Not sure if it's used only in Argentina or anywhere else. Does anyone know?

    In Spain, 500 Euro bills used to be called Bin Ladens, because everybody knew they existed but nobody had ever laid eyes on one...

    I have heard this term in Peru. I do not know if it is used somewhere else.
