"It's Just a penny!"

I recently have run into people who just throw away their pennies..

Not that I care it is their money they are wasting.. but eventually it add's up!

Well then I found this site online.. And I had to share this..

This is what 1000 pennies looks like.. 


1,000
[5 pennies wide x 5 pennies high x 40 pennies tall]
 


A thousand pennies is only $10.00 worth of pennies, yet it weighs over six pounds.


And this is what one million pennies lookes like.. Just saying..
 
One Million Pennies


1,003,776
One million, three thousand, seven hundred and seventy-six Pennies
[ A wall five by four by one feet thick with a 9-inch cube stepstool ]
 

Say hello to our friend Graham. Now that the pennies have really begun to pile up,
he'll be standing in for scale. Graham is about 5 feet, 10 inches tall, and he weighs
about 180 pounds, or about 35 times less than the 1 million pennies stacked beside
him.

THE VALUE OF ONE MILLION PENNIES.. IF YOU SOLD THE COPPER AND THE OTHER MINERALS..=$10,037.76

Ten million Pennies:


10,017,024
Ten million, seventeen thousand and twenty-four Pennies
[ A cube 6 x 6 x 6 feet ]
 
Ten Million cents. If you laid these all out flat, side-by-side, like a
huge carpet of pennies, it would nearly cover one acre. Click here
for a look at 100,000,000 copper disks

 
value $100,170.24
(One hundred thousand, one hundred

seventy dollars and twenty-four cents)

One Hundred Million Pennies=


100,016,640
One hundred million, sixteen thousand, six hundred and forty Pennies
[ Two cubes, one 12x12x12 feet, the other 7x7x7 feet ]
 
Since these cubes are mostly dense metal, their weight is impressive. One
hundred million pennies weighs over 300 tons. For comparison, the largest living
animal, the Blue Whale, weighs less than 150 tons as an adult.

When you hear talk of "billions" of something (dollars, miles, people, etc), it's
hard to visualize. But up next, we have a visual for you - one billion pennies

 

value $1,000,166.40
(One million, one hundred sixty-six
dollars and forty cents)

My son won't let me throw out pennies since they stopped making them.  But I used to since most people won't take them anyhow.

Toronto, I haven't seen anywhere that takes them anymore, they don't make them anymore, they are obsolete
