The value of pennies

When the object you need is worth about a penny, maybe a penny itself will do.

My earlier collision with the pull tab urban legend caused me to suggest collecting pennies at $1.81/lb instead of soda pop can pull tabs (about 750) at $.42/lb because you would make more money per pound of donations to Ronald McDonald house.

BoingBoing posts Tom Parker's suggestion to use a penny as a washer because it would save you money. Now if only I had a penny punch, I could go into the washer business.

I can't emphasize enough to do the math!
