still produces pennies?
I stumbled upon the penny in this picture today. It felt fake. I thought it might have been some sort of foreign currency that had slipped through the cracks.
2012 and we are still making pennies?
Am I the only one that sees this as slightly absurd? I mean the days of penny candy and penny cartoons are long gone.
Shit, the value of a dollar ain't what it used to be. According to the US Inflation Calculator, an item purchased for $20 in 1978 today would cost $70.39.
It costs more to make a penny than a penny is worth.
So why do we still make them?
