"4.99€ (£4.99)"I don't know what any of these symbols mean! Does this have something to do with Celsius metres?

They mean euros and pounds, respectively.

The latter one is pounds, and I -think- the former is euros. I could be talking out of my ass, though, since I'm an Aussie and the denominations I have to deal with on a daily basis include AUD, AUD, AUD, AUD, AUD, and USD.Unless you're trolling. In which case, you are obviously correct - the first one looks like a C so it must be Celsius. The latter is OBVIOUSLY an F so it must be Fahrenheit.

I believe that is the Euro symbol.

It's an ancient measurement of courage. Basically you get:1 € for every animal strangled with your bare hands.1£ for every animal strangled with your bearhands.0.1 £/€ for winning arguments on websites (also known as "1 internet").10 € for escaping alive from the annual european firestarter festival (held each year in their respective capitols and major cities).Etc. So 4.99 would indicate at least one major victory in a chainsaw-nunchuck cage fight, but don't quote me on that cause my last one was a while ago and they may have changes the rules on stylish finishing moves.

/sAdded because it appears everyone's sarcasm meters were off. I thought it was funny, at least.

"1£ for every animal strangled with your bearhands"So you get money for having your bear strangle stuff? Cool.

You people and your bizarre measurements. My car gets 40 rods to the hogshead, and that's the way I likes it.

The first number is written in €yrrilic and the second number is written in £atin, duh. Someone wasn't paying attention during their historic language courses in elementary school.
