Today I spent the better part of my day sorting and rolling years of coins I’ve been saving in a “piggy bank”. My plan was always to use this change to pay for a flight to Europe or a flight to Asia.
Well I figured that money is probably better off in a real bank so I can start earning a little bit of interest, so I decided to roll it all up today. Here are the results:
Pennies (1 cent) – 2650 x $0.01 = $26.50
Nickels (5 cents) – 686 x $0.05 = $34.30
Dimes (10 cents) – 1268 x $0.10 = $126.80
Quarters (25 cents) – 1100 x $0.25 = $275.00
Loonies (1 dollar) – 217 x $1.00 = $217.00
Toonies (2 dollars) – 129 x $2.00 = $258.00
Grand total: $937.60 (If you’re thinking about robbing me on my way to work tomorrow, good luck. I’ll just whack you with the 50 pound bag of change) See below for some pictures.
On a separate note, I was playing paintball yesterday and as I was crawling on my stomach on the ground to avoid being hit, I accidentally pulled the trigger and unloaded 4 rounds of paint balls on Stu’s ass at point blank. He was only 8 feet in front of me, also laying on his stomach, so it must have hurt like a son of a bitch. I felt bad for the poor fellow; wish I could somehow make it up to him.
