no, because the CT state tax would be 10% rounded up, but yes because it is a waste of money to make them. so yes no (i voted yes, so i could still buy arizona green tea for 1.05)

I doubt it actually costs a nickel to make a penny. Surely people all over the country would be melting them down and selling the metal. If that became the case they'd change the metal they were made from. Like in the U.K. when copper became sufficiently valuable for 1p and 2p coins to be worth more than their face value, they changed the metal from which they made them. Easily detectable because a magnet will only pick up 1p and 2p coins made after around 1993.

Pennies are not that expensive. They aren't even made from copper. They're made from zinc, and just coated in copper, in order to save money.

I know right. I liked the doc that was a picture of a penny. wtf?

I got a 5 on that test too, and I was thinking about it, which is what inspired the thread.

I got a 3 Fuck me; I'm a good writer too, it was just AP test number four out of five that spring.

That was a really interesting prompt though. The last essay was shit.

But considering making them at all costs money, and that they are under used, that they get lost in people's homes and are never used (when they could be out stimulating the economies blue balls), and that prices could be rounded the the nearest 5th cent, we could eliminate their cost period.

I don't think they are underused. I carry four pennies on me at all times, so that I have exact change.
