Counting coppers? Pah. I feed them into one of those counting machines they have in supermarkets, and gladly pay their commission.

Drokked if I'd give the bank any commission, so bring your next load of coppers up to Hi-Ex! and I'll give you a better rate.
At the last count we had a couple of hundred in bags, as I keep forgetting to take them to the bank  ::)

can't remember how much the machine takes but its not a lot and probably less the the fuel used to cart that lot 400 miles  ;)
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

You can't really call them coppers any more as they are mainly steel.

CF's got the idea. Those machines are going to have a significant margin of error - whose favour do you think that's weighted in? Plus the commission. Fuck that.

Coppers are slow going though. I chuck everything under a quid in a sweety jar each night. Last time it filled up I cashed in £195! Even without the 50p coins that'd be £95. I genuinely pulled a muscle in my back lugging it to the bank though, shouldn't have run for that bus!

I also quite like the counting and stacking up of loads of little piles of coins like Scrooge McDuck. It's not up there with rolling in big piles of banknotes. but it's the next best currency-based amusement.

I hope you realise that all this coin hoarding is devaluing the pound.

Yeah, right. That's why i spent 15 minutes at the beginning, crafting a coin counting tool out of a cardboard box.

Too much time indeed... :-\
You ever notice that everyone who believes in creationism looks really unevolved? Eyes real close together, big furry hands and feet. "I believe God created me in one day." Yeah, looks like he rushed it.

My redundancy payment came through today, and I wasnt expecting it for months! Awesome!
Now if I didn't feel half dead I'd be off to the shop to pick up the latest prog. Hopefully I can still get my hands on the birthday edition.
Money really does make everything seem better. Even shingles.
