It's a US thing.  Anything bigger than a $20 is a relatively unusual 
bill size.  Many places don't accept anything bigger than $20.  Usual 
excuses... i.e., Anti-Crime, makes change management easier, etc.

Now I think it's semi-self sustaining- $100 aren't generlaly 
accepted, so people don't carry hundreds, so businesses don't get 
complaints about accepting $100... and so forth.  Frankly the 
strangest thing about his story was an ATM machine handing out $100's.

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud.
After a while, you realize the pig is enjoying it.
