Change you can believe in

Postby Tzan » Fri May 04, 2012 2:40 pm

So I scooped a bunch of pennies, nickles and dimes into a small Pick-A_Brick cup. Filled to the top.
I dumped them into a CoinStar.
Guess how much it was worth.

The winners will get a realization that they could have just guessed the correct answer at 25% chance.
The losers will wonder why life is so unfair.

My dad gave me 1.45 USD today. Too bad it's only $1.44 Canadian.

Uhm... ok?


So when I saw how much it was, I was very surprised.

Those of you paying attention will have noticed that $8 and $15 are the prices of Pick-a-Brick cups.
So it would be a massive koincidence if it was one of those.

The actual price is $22, after a 10% fee I got $20 and some change.

Why would you use a change machine?  Just roll that shit and bring it to a bank.

Rolling things is not something I am experienced with. :warhead:
And it takes too long. People in the 1%, like me, don't have the time to spend rolling coins.

At the machine you can get the full amount credited to a supermarket gift card, no fee.
So I would do that, if I was worried about 2 bucks. It seems like free money anyway.
I think I have 3 more scoops in the big wooden bowl.
Then there is at least that much again in a cardboard box, maybe more.

I havent really addressed this whole surplus coin problem in over 15 years.
