    why were the old ones broken and not working properly? Ive heard machines started thinking they were really worht 4 cents and the lose of that one cent compounded was putting us in the hole big time.


    still think the new one is ugly.

    ^I heard that too. Like if you put 20 of them together, you can spend them like a dollar or some shit like that.

    They do look ugly, but I've been listening to so much hiphop lately, I looked at Thom's face and was like, "Dude is so focused right now."

    Also, I've been sleeping on croissants.

    I actually like then now. when compared side by side he new nickles appear bigger, so pyschologically i now feel like my 5cents spends bigger then the old five cents

    its also nice that its not centered.

    FYI i took a 6 week course lead by john kerry on "flip-floppery"
