We have a huge plastic container in our pantry thet we keep our change in and didn't realize how full it was until it SPILLED all over the pantry the other day. What astonished me was the sheer number of pennies that were in there in fact, it was mostly pennies because we had pilfered all of the quarters. It dawned on me that pennies are a nuisance and when we need change we rarely reach for pennies. What good are they and what useful purpose do they serve? The below video illustrates why the penny is economically inefficient and should be abolished. This video is brilliant and well done.
