    Default Interesting read: Canada's doing way with the "Penny."

    Long been a fact of life, including here in the US, that it costs more to make a penny than its face value. Appears Canada is just going to do away with the coin.

    People here must like them.. they tried to get rid of them in 2008 or so.. it failed

    for 2 cents a piece.. considering they last for 30, 40, 50 years.. they're a bargain.. but I hate them anyways.. lol
    Not that they cost too much to make, but they're value is so low, to justify keeping them.. I don't care if they cost .0001 cents each
