**** no!

pennies are worthless. how often do you see people keep their change if it's only a penny?

NEVER! THEY'RE ****ING USELESS!

do you ever wonder why pennies just lay around like used condoms in the streets? it's because no one ****ing wants them. i know that i never use them. i've got a jar in my kitchen full of pennies from when i was 8. i counted out $1.50 in change, and then i gave up.

every price should end in a zero, or a five. end of story.

I had a shoe box full of pennies once, and when I counted them it came out to be more than $10. Yes, I spent my day counting pennies.

It actually costs more than a cent to make a penny.

But I think getting rid of them might actually be bad.(at least that's what I've heard.

Canada was considering doing that to eliminate pennies.

I was hoping they would do it because they're all over my desk and my dresser. They're pretty annoying since they have almost no value.

And just to add something. I remember reading somewhere that in America it actually costs more than 1 cent to make a penny lol. I never understood that. At least in Canada it costs less than 1 cent to make a penny.

And pennies are not worthless. They're worth 1 cent.

pssh you obviously don't see the true value in the penny that you get screwed out on every time you but fro the grocery store or especially by gas. Companies rake in millions of off people that don't care about their pennies. Millions.

If there would be no pennies the whole money deal would be off whack. There would be no way to give exact change, and the whole purpose now for the penny is to keep it that way.

If there would be no pennies you could say bye bye to taxes too.

edit: they wanted to get rid of pennies here in a couple years ago here, i remember talking with my dad about it.

thats true. think about it in teh long run. 1 gas station charges 95.5/litre, the otehr charges 95.6. company number 2 makes 1 cent on every litre of gas over the otehr one. an avererage car has a 50ish litre tank (thats 50 cents per car) big rigs have two 200 litre tanks so thats 4 dollars, and think abotu how many cars go through there a day. Think about it

The only use for pennies is as a means of getting less pennies.

It's true. You use pennies in an attempt to save yourself from getting any back.

For example, let's say your change for a purchase is 87 cents. You give the clerk 3 pennies and now your change is 90 cents. You've just saved yourself from having 6 pennies.

No, it's 95.6 CENTS. so company number B only makes .1 cents more per litre than company A. In that case, B would make 1 cent more than company A for every 10 litres, not every litre.

The point still stands though that companies set up prices for their products in ways that make it possible for them to profit greatly from the use of pennies. My math teacher last year would rant once a week about the amazing value of the "half-penny." I can't remember everything that she said but it was amazing how much a company made. I believe those "3 for $.99" kind of deals also screw you out of money by making you pay more for one product than advertised, or something like. I'm tired and sore so not thinking quite right.
