The only time I see pennies anymore are when Americans come into the fast food place I work at (I'm Canadian) and they try to give them to me. Like yeah no thanks I don't want your usless change. It's also kinda an unintentional fuck you when they leave them in the tip jar. 😂

Actually the charity argument is not even true, here in the Netherlands and other countries have already just stopped making pennies and the amount of money given to charity has not dropped at all. Also the 100 million dollars a year he is talking about would mean that every American would have to donate about 30 pennies a year, including every baby, child and everyone living in poverty...

All of our coins are annoying and worthless. It's from a long ago era when coins actually had some purchasing power. Completely get rid of them or keep just the quarter. Round everything to the nearest quarter. Simple. And no more ridiculous pricing like $2.99. We all know that's THREE FRIGGIN DOLLARS, so you're not fooling anyone.

I once made a glider out of Styrofoam boards I found lying around my house. The center of mass was a little bit behind the lift, so to balance it I used a few pennies. Got the glider to nose down a little bit, but the wings were utter shit to begin with and just didn't work. Thanks, US currency.

Pennies are not totally worthless, if you get enough of them you can get higher cents.

I clean a big-box store, I usually find one to as many as 7 or 8 pennies (a few nickels and dimes too) every day. Beings as I work 6 days a week . . . they go in a jar on my desk. They add up and have been that last bit needed for gas on the last day before payday. Paycheck to paycheck people know how that is.

If there were a petition, I’d sign it. If there were a new law enacted, I’d vote for it. If it were possible, I’d impeach it. Oops, am I just talking about pennies now!!?

Recently, the penny has cost approximately 2.4 cents to produce; the nickel approximately 11.2 cents.

Why not just use thinner pennies that way we're using less material per penny, lowering the total cost.

I once as a child swallowed a penny and eventually pooped it out... We later spent it. Just like that frozen butt penny and the dog butt pennies it just might be in your pocket right now too! Enjoy.

India banned 25p and 50p around 2011. 1 penny=0.67 rupees. I guess it's time for penny to extinct Even people barely accept 1 rupee coins nowadays. They are mostly valueless and cost twice to mint.

I save every penny I find, 1¢ may be small but 1000 pennies and more is alot when saved for an occasion

People have tried to give away gold coins and they had lots of people say no. But there are places they could go to see pennies picked up. Anywhere near me. ..........But the sad picture was them using heat pennies in the opening bit, Those are worth more, as they are 97.5% copper not mostly zinc. They devalued the penny by devaluing the whole dollar.

If John retouches this episode and sets up a donation for people to send and exchange while they just return them to the treasury, we might actually stop making them.

reason to keep the penny.....for those souvenir penny press machines!!

I think the real value in pennies is it facilitates a more appealing price point to the consumer. For example, studies have shown that people are more willing to purchase an item for $24.99 than $25.00, a "big" even number. Even though chances are the consumer will pay with an even $25, consumers are drawn to the idea that they are getting a deal. Pennis valuable by its ability to increase consumerism in this way. Consumerism is valuable to the economy. Therefore, so is the Penny.

We haven't used 'em in sum yrs now (in Canada). Pricing is still exacted to the penny, but we just round up or down -- no biggy and that's often double the amount (.02$ there's not even the c with the cross thru it on my keyboard. Ha, no wonder its dead). What's with the American mind, eh, lol!

Here's the problem if you get rid of the penny - Corporations like Nikey would be forced to pay their child slaves in China 5 cents an hour instead of just 2 cents.

I wouldn't mind pennies stopping being produced. Doesn't necessarily mean that you couldn't still use them, though, just that they'd slowly disappear as they got lost.

If you have a ticket that you shouldn't have. Say it cost two hundred dollars. Pay in pennies and watch the probation office and they will freak out. So it's worth it to have them.

When I was a baby I crawling on the floor then I saw a penny. I picked it up looked at it and then I swallowed it. My mom saw me turning blue and called for my dad . He then proceeded to run towards me and then did the Heimlich Maneuver and I puked. That’s what my mom told me. I could’ve died from that penny .

Just saying, I work in customer service and there happen to be a lot of times where i had checked out customers who had either used gift cards or did exchanges and literally only were either owed or only had to pay a difference of a few pennies or even just one. Today, that literally happened as a woman used up a giftcard I had just given her as store credit on some new things, and she literally only had to pay me a penny (it was a massager, 10.85 after tax. The giftcard had 10.84 on it).

Plus, it gives me comfort knowing that those who are struggling turn to penny collecting. Those who not only appreciate the value of a dollar, but a cent as well.

I give a lot of pennies to charity. If you don't want your pennies give them to a bum or in the charity bucket. Every cent counts. If 350 million people donate a penny that 35 million dollars for charity.

Stop using god damn pennies and round everything to the nearest 5th. I work in one of the busiest pharmacies in washington state and not having to count out each individual penny would honestly save a lot more time and get through customers a little bit faster. Pennies are stupid and completely fucking worthless.

The amount to pay to make pennies is complete bs yeah it cost more than it's worth but it's not like it cost 100 dollars to make a 100 dollar bill. It doesn't even cost 1 dollar to a 1 dollar bill... everyone is acting like it's going to completely bankrupt us because of one form of currency.

I tip and give charity in pennies, what about me if they withdraw pennies from circulation!..
Adit Jain (3 месяца назад)
The fact about the charity is actually pretty valid. Since the pennies may be worthless to a single person but say 10000 of them contribute just 1 penny that could alone give a 100 bucks.

i think this clip was made AFTER famed author and OG youtube vlogger John Green (from vlogbrothers) asked the then POTUS Barack Obama about calling it cuts on the penny....Obama pretty much danced around an "it's not so simple" answer to pretty much say "no one in power is gonna do shit about it cuz it's so low on the priority scale that it's not even worth it"
