Pennies: yay or nay?

Postby Dan Lambskin » Mon Jun 05, 2006 2:01 pm

saw this article in today's Detroit Free Press:does keeping the penny make sense?

they can get rid of the stupid things for all i care. what was alarming to me was that 79% of people will stop to pick up a penny. who did they poll, children and the elderly?

pennies :-t

I say we keep them but switch them to a diffrent material. It cost like 1.25 cents to amek a penny gotta be a cheaper way

The rising costs of copper have now put the cost of making a penny more than a penny. Plus I think I'd rather have all silver in my pocket.

I don't use them. In fact I've thrown them away before. Although I think it would be weird to not have a 1 cent coin. :-?

I could care less, it goes in my change nalgene with the rest of my spare change.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

I have Penny-phobia and I'm not even kidding. They creep me out. If I have them I throw them out and if I see one I turn my eyes.

Keep them. I don't want to get ripped off on change. Just make them out of something else.

Take all your change and put it in a jar. Eventually, you'll have a whole lot of money you didn't think you had.

Maybe thats why they have to keep minting them. ;-) People throwing them out sure doesn't help.


The bigger problem is that you almost never use them, so most people end up just putting them in a jar, thereby taking them out of circulation.
