I learned about a Cheese Bank in Italy today this amused me. So there’s these cheese makers in italy that have giant wheels of Parmesan that take two years to cure and be ready for the table but while these cheese makers make the cheese they won’t see any return for 2 years no way to make money. So the cheese maker deposits his cheese into the bank for a loan to cover his expenses, should he default the bank gets the cheese.

Surprisingly this bank is highly guarded with multiple security systems and even with that it still has been broken in three times! Then again it is over 200 million dollars worth of cheese in there.
