The Orphanage of Cast-off Mascots. [Oh, these are truly classic.] This reminds me of some popular books I find in various design shops and ad agencies:
Holy cow! I’ve made another $75 at Epinions, even though I have written a review since last October. Come to think of it, I haven’t written a CamRant since last October, either. I wonder if there is any correlation.
I went to the Post Office today to buy stamps. From the stamp machine I received a handful of the new one dollar coins. This led me to start thinking about the penny. I generally don’t like the penny. It’s a nuisance. Too many of them tend to collect in great numbers in your pockets, your desk, your car ashtray, and elsewhere. I’m sure that many of you have entire containers full of pennies at home, waiting to be rolled. I know I do. As a child living overseas on American military bases, I learned that the military doesn’t use the penny in their American money transactions, and all prices are rounded up or down to the the nickel. When I asked why, I was told it was due to the expense of shipping heavy pennies overseas to every American military base in the world that uses American money (most do). What a clever idea! These days, the penny is almost worthless, yet there are entire groups of people petitioning the government to save the penny. I just don’t understand why. Of course, Coinstar is against the elimination of the penny. [Google-powered links]
