    Photurus pennsylvanica is the official state insect of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. However, Pennsylvanians call them “lightning bugs.”

    the mortgage final payment couldn’t happen in Australia or a lot of other countries. Even when Aussie land still used 1c coins, it was only legal tender to use a max of $10 worth at a time

    The IRS has taken the same stand. When a taxpayer tried to pay off his owed taxes with a wheelbarrow full of pennies, they said they weren’t legal tender and made him return with bills. Take a look at our coins. Nowhere does it say that it’s legal tender. Now, the bank may have been more lenient in accepting his final payment of $620 in pennies.

    Years ago I took a bag of pennies to the bank (back when they would count them for you) for them to deposit to my account. They later sent me a letter stating that two of the pennies stuck together and were counted as a nickel, resulting in a three cent error, for which they were debiting my account. The postage on the letter (as I recall) was 22 cents. Go figure.

    I’m going to Bleaklow Moorlands to bury my enemies. Y’know, if I ever have any.

    That’s just dumb, and the banks are legally not required to take a large payment in pennies. However money is money.

    The bank I deal with has a coin sorter/counter. It could handle a bushel of pennies in minutes.

    Since he lived in Massachusetts, pennies are probably all he had left after Romney kept raising the taxes there.

    What ‘cents’ does it make to pay off the mortgage in pennies?
