There is no point except party and be healthy and happy. Also money is not something to live for. If i didnt need money for drugs and beer i would give mine away.

What a stupid idea. Although they do look nice...

But anyway, the penny needs to be retired, its a waste of money.

+1 I think the only reason that they are still used is because many stores have stupid deceiving prices like $99.99.

Old pennies get melted down and made into new ones when they become unreadable. dipshit

hey dipshit, 60 minutes just ran a story on the millions of dollars we are losing making pennies and nickles, they may get melted down, but it costs like 1.5 cents to make 1 cent do the math asswipe.

People still need to use pennies.

umm if we rounded off all the prices instead of this .99 cents bullshit, then we could have a system based on the nickle or even the dime

Urban legend, it doesn't cost a full 0.5 cent extra for each penny. It's much less. And these new pennies are going to be collectibles. Whenever a bunch of people take money out of circulation(like the US State quarters) the government makes a lot of money(I forget the reasons why). So, that's basically why they are doing it, even though they probably won't break even, since they are just pennies.

I guess that could work in theory. But, (as far as I know, I've never done any research on it before) no society has tried it yet.

I'm just saying, we have an ungodly deficit and any unnecessary costs that could be eliminated should be, you have to ask yourself, is the penny the base of our monetary system and the answer is no.
#26
Ew wtf..I dont like it ..excuse me, im gonna go cry in a corner now.

Why would we waste all that money for something we really didnt need to do? Was it really necessary? I miss the old penny...

You sir are correct..pennies are the most ironic thing ever created. And yes, the other guy is an asswipe. But we can't just get rid of them...i say we make them out of pure zinc.

these new pennies cost .5 cents apiece to make. the old ones cost 1.4 cents apiece to make.
1.4
-0.5
-------
0.9

by my simple first-grade math we are saving .9 cents when minting the new pennies this way as opposed to the old way.

I totally forgot pennies still say "E Pluribus Unum" on the tails side.

I really wish that we went back to that motto and got rid of the "In God We Trust" bullshit.
