Title: No more Pennies!
Description: Oh no!


Darkender - March 5, 2009 02:35 AM (GMT)
From what I hear the government is starting to think about getting rid of pennies, because they are begining to cost more to make than they're actually worth. So what do you think? Do you think they should get rid of the pennies?

granobulax - March 5, 2009 02:37 AM (GMT)
Absolutely. They just take up space.

Marvel Man - March 5, 2009 02:43 AM (GMT)
Never.

How will we get change? Besides, is it fair for Lincoln?

Also, what about all the pennies that already exist under sofas, in car seats, etc?

You would probably have to wait 50 years and then sell them for big money...

Lincoln has a whole statue!

Yeah, but everytime a cashier gives me my change, I'm honoring his memory. ^_^

What's the use of pennies? We could go on without them.

Darkender - March 5, 2009 02:52 AM (GMT)
I wonder if they'll replace them with something way cheaper to make.

No good. The value of money fluxes to much.

A penny will still be worth a penny, they just won't make it any more.

Look at the $2 bill for example. They haven't made those in forever but you can still spend them.

I still have some of those, but I won't spend it ever.

How will we get change? Really? Think that one through. Actually, you already asked the stupid question, so I'll help you think it through.

Step 1: Analyze the entire situation.
We're getting rid of pennies, NOT nickels, quarters, or dimes.

Step 2: Pick your favorite answer
"I'll take a nickel rather than 5 pennies."

Step 3: Realize how stupid of a question that was and never ask another question in fear that it just might be as stupid.
"Hmm? I have a question. Oh, wait. It's a stupid one. I'll just keep it to myself."

How would I pay $2.57 cents without pennies?

Write a check.

Brilliant. No pennies then.

The Ripper - March 5, 2009 05:19 AM (GMT)
If pennies are gone, then what about EXACT change. They should replace the stuff in pennies with cheaper materials.

granobulax - March 5, 2009 05:40 AM (GMT)
Ok, its really quite simple. If they get rid of those useless pennies, then people will simply start charging in increments of 5 instead of 1. A gallon of milk will be $2.oo a gallon instead of $1.99 and so on.

You have a point, but what of food tax and the like?

You should put gum under a penny or a quater and then put it to the floor, and just watch. Hilarious.
