I don't use pennies myself that often. I might keep all mine though, in case their value somehow rises.

I'll keep a few pennies for keepsakes but otherwise, good riddance. They weigh down the wallet so much. :( Wouldn't mind seeing nickels go either but I'm probably in a bit of a minority with that opinion.

Everything should just end cleanly so we can use full dollar amounts

I'm keeping my eyes open for a 2012 penny. I gave one that I had to my grandfather (he collects coins), but I want one too XD

I agree with getting rid of the nickel, but the whole dollar thing I'm not so sure about, lol. That'll probably never happen.

I don't know if I could get behind everything rounded to full dollar amounts, but I'd be more than okay with getting rid of the nickel, too. If we did that, prices would look so much nicer, with everything ending in a 0. And I didn't think that 2012 pennies were all that rare (in fact, I'm looking at 5 of them on my desk right now).

I went through my small jar of coins earlier, and I got sidetracked counting how many pennies I had when I found a few old ones. I found at least 8 pre-centennial pennies, a couple of which had King George VI on the back (the oldest I could find was 1947). I know my dad has some coins that are even older, with the oldest going back to somewhere around 1922, but I can't recall if they were pennies or not.

I got a snow day! I haven't had one since high school which was forever ago. \o/ It came on a great day, too, since I had an assignment due and didn't want to leave the house early to hand it in. Now i don't have to leave the house at all! (Although I couldn't fall back asleep so no sleeping in baaw.)

I've had plenty of snow here, and now it's melting and becoming really icy :c

Oh and I really want a 2013 penny tbh. Those will be hard to find now.

They stopped production of the penny in 2012, I don't think they have any 2013 ones =/

That was some snowstorm that came by. Man, people around the neighbourhood were sliding all around the place because they didn't have snow tires. We didn't have a whole lot of snow before the storm, so I guess I can't entirely blame them.

But yeah, with the penny stopping, I'm thinking of just keeping all the pennies I can find. Maybe they'll be worth something it the future, though I kinda doubt that myself.
And I guess "a lucky penny" won't exist any more, because they are practically useless. >.>

Where do you live pokemanmdj? You guys don't have a law where you're obligated to put winter tires at some point before winter?

That's a Québec law. I'm not aware of it being anywhere else. It really should be implemented elsewhere though. We live in Canada, we get snow. And if it doesn't snow it gets cold. You need winter tires. Its about how the compound reacts to cold temperatures. "All" seasons or using chains just doesn't cut it.

Wow, I thought they had that law everywhere in Canada =S

But they really should put up that law everywhere don't you think? I mean.. we live in Canada, this ain't really the warmest place you could find in winter. And the amount of snow we get? Don't get me started on that lol.

I could see it making sense if each individual province decided to make winter tires mandatory, based on how much snow you get overall. However, Greater Vancouver and Vancouver Island saw maybe 5-10 cm of snow total this year, and that really isn't too far out of the normal, so it wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to have mandatory snow tires here (the interior and Northern BC is a whole different story, though). Granted, it's always a good idea to be prepared and have them, but I'm sure many wouldn't want to spend a few hundred bucks on tires that would get very limited use.

Also, I know the response to hockey in this thread was lukewarm at best, but I hope everyone enjoyed our unofficial holiday of Hockey Day in Canada.

Don't even get me started. We got four feet of snow, lost power and heat for two days and trees started falling down from the wind and weight of snow combined. :(
Almost everyone here has snow tires despite them not being mandatory.
And the Bruins are off to a great start. :)

Don't think of them as snow tires. More accurately, they're winter tires. When it gets cold, snow or not, you want them on.

They're not only for snow. Because in winter, it gets slippery and hard to navigate. We don't really do it for the snow, it's more of a safety precaution.

Sorry, made it confusing, I just use the name snow tires and winter tires interchangeably. I know they're used for slick and icy roads too, but just like the snow, we see very little ice on our roads around here, either. Like I said, it would be a good idea to have mandatory winter tires in some places, but I don't know if it'd make sense across the board.
