  13. YEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!! I hate pennies, and now people know why! However, it's really sad this is the episode I'm commenting on. I guess my comment is worth about a penny considering the importance of the subject of this episode compared to every other topic that's been covered. ……… I still hate pennies.

  18. WAT. A LOBBY for pennies? That's it, I'm done.

    That does explain why we still have it despite constantly talking about its uselessness. That's for bringing more attention to it, Oliver

  31. Someone is going to have to explain to me the value of a currency system that is constantly inflating anyway. A halfpenny gets phased, out a penny gets phased out, who's to say in a hundred years nickels won't be gone, and we'll be making funny eyes at the dime next, while everyone looks forward to the invention of a $1,000 bill. Not to mention that the dollar will become the new Penny one day.

  33. my only issue with this is I collect coins and I still need some back dated ones for my penny collection I'm kinda obsessive about my collections. And finding coins that aren't being minted can be a bit hard. Otherwise I completely understand and agree.
