Piizzadude: Heroin is a hell of a drug
Jeng: As an "Art Project", or really to prove how worthless pennies are, I would love to put about $5,000 worth of pennies in a big open box on a street corner to see peoples reactions and to see how long it takes those 500,000 pennies to disappear.Btw, when we got rid of half-cents, they had the buying power of the modern dime, and the economy did not collapse from people unable to make change.
Piizzadude: Man I saw Middletown before the state and I figured if it was PA I knew exactly who it wasHeroin is a hell of a drug..
433: Piizzadude: Heroin is a hell of a drugIt's one of the greatest cop-outs known to man. I feel that there is much out there that we practice as methods of escapism, but climbing the ladder and reaching heroin is damned near the pinnacle. Even as a recovered/recovering addict, it pains me to know that the greatest pleasures I can know in life can be hoodwinked and substituted for another one of the greatest pleasures I know. Good god, the taste of forbidden fruit never leaves the mouth.Heroin turned me into a newt. But I got bettwe.
Igor Jakovsky: Did they at least put the pennies in their asses before they put them in the change machine?
No Line For Beer: If I could only do more than barely tolerate winter I'd happily become one of America's hats.

And to literally throw away money in the face of some junkies who were serious problems for the whole neighborhood.I only did it to a few of them who I had previous encounters with (two I'd caught breaking into my car, one I caught shiatting in the parking lot for my apartment, one was caught peeping on my neighbor) but they were so farking spun out they didn't even remember that I had them arrested previously.Other than that I can't think of any good reason to keep the penny.
