should we in the US also consider forgoing the penny for a substantial country revenue?
5 years ago
no
5 years ago
but it costs more to make than it's face value

there are supposedly laws in place that prohibit melting down pennies to reclaim the copper.
5 years ago
so how is it possible to enforce those laws?
5 years ago
The same way they enforce sodomy laws.

There are sodomy laws?

if you mean enforcing the penny melting laws, the scrapyards won't take them.
5 years ago
its illegal to destroy any currency... pretty much in any country... what prevents people from killing other people? laws i guess.... so same thing would be in effect.. people still do melt down the us penny since its worth like 3x of its face value... that being said.... it doesnt really make it all that profitable because of the resources needed to do
5 years ago
considering that if you're willing to break the law melting down illicit metals, why wouldn't you just do stolen gold and silver?

i've been told that they actually keep track of people selling copper now...but i've never tried to sell more than a few dollars worth.

from what i heard when yuo sell it you have to wait a week before you get the check for it,so they can make sure it isnt stolen

My mom owns a factory building on the bad side of town. The company renting it just went out of business. A week later there was a "break in" and somebody pulled all of the wiring out on 3 of the floors. It's a big scam locally for scrap. There are lots of vacant houses that get broken into and the copper plumbing stolen as well.

and they didnt have the courtesy to get fried up like in the pics on the internet of niggers trying to steal copper from high voltage vaults?

Fucking copper thieves around here like to hit houses that are foreclosed on and houses for sale. I am sure to by drugs with the money. The recycle centers are making it harder for them to sell copper I have heard though.
5 years ago
i think thats anywhere.. they are the prime spots for people to hit... that and construction sites
construction sites are the easiest since the sheer amount of it and the fact that noone will really question people being there at night

the canadian penny isnt being discontinued because it doesnt have value..its because it doesnt make financial sense to actually produce the pennies themselves...pretty sure canada is about par with the states right now.....besides neither of these things would have anything to do with the other
5 years ago
break it down pops
5 years ago
No... it doesn't have value... it costs 1.4 cents to make a cent. Therefore, it isn't worth it's own value.
5 years ago
ok idiot.. the cent......the cent has the value of 1 cent regardless how much it costs.. or if they produce pennies at all
5 years ago
you have value confused with my balls ..which are on your face right now..you chipmunk
5 years ago
it's not like canada is the first country to get rid of the penny
5 years ago
true, but it's relevant to discuss as to why we (us down here.... Hi :3 *waves) haven't followed suit to better our own struggling economy
