on the street or just somewhere out and about on the ground, do you pick it up?




I honestly don't always pick them up.



What got me thinking about this was I just walked my trash over to my dumpster at my apt complex. I noticed when I got over there a nickel right by the dumpster. I picked it up of course as I will never not pick up "silver" change. However upon picking it up i noticed like 20 pennies also on the ground too. I picked those up as well. I walked back to my apt thinking to myself, "man I live in a country where MONEY is just laying randomly throughout our environment and no one really gives it a second thought"

yeah its just pennies, or a nickel, but its still money. It has a set value that will never appreciate nor depreciate (and don't bring up inflation, blah blah. I'm not trying to go that deep with this. I am already an economics major. so spare me the hypotheticals)



Just a question i thought i would ask y'all guys

There should have been a 'sometimes' option. I pick it up sometimes but it all depends on the situation and where I'm at..

Almost always, unless it's in the middle of a cross walk or is going to be an inconvenience to people. I also look inside the change return on soda machines when walking by because you'll occasionally find several dollars worth of change in there.

Me too! I keep a change jar and if I find change anywhere penny or other wise it's mine and it goes to the jar. That stuff adds up fast.

I usually don't because I'm such a charitable guy I figure someone else could use it more than me.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I welded a nail to a NZD $2 coin and hammered it into the pavement across the road from my
Shop, people would try so hard to get it off, breaking fingernails and huffing and puffing, thinking it was just glued.
Someone must have come back with some tools because eventually it wasnt there any more. But overall good prank, would do again.

I would pick it up. Pennies no matter how small their value is, they are still money and are usable.

A bit off topic, but an interesting factoid. Dimes, quarters, and half-dollars all have the same value to weight ratio. Meaning a pound of quarters has the same value as a pound of dimes, which has the same value as a pound of half-dollars. Coincidentally, a pound of any combination of dimes, quarters, and half-dollars equals twenty dollars. No matter how you mix it up, one pound will always be equal to twenty dollars.

In Canada, we dont use pennies anymore. As crazy as it sounds they dont distribute them anymore.
I do pick up change as long as its not in a crowded area or full of liquids or piss on it. Money is money.

Few years ago and i was golfing and found a $20 in the rough, was a great moment. :)
Wish it happened more often in public.

When I was a kid and when those boston baked beans and lemon heads only cost 10 cents each, my buddy and I would ride to the playground area and search the sandy area for change. Change is always laying around.

Here's another question for you guys. If you're willing to pick up a penny, are you also willing to pick up a can or a bottle which is worth much more?
