This has been a talking point for a long time now, Ryan's not the first.

How is this spam? The guys had a long conversation on the bombcast about pennies and I thought that this was a weird coincidence.

I've been having "no-more-pennies" conversations since my first semester of '09, before I even joined Giant Bomb.

The no-more-pennies thing has been going on since the 90s at least.

Interestingly, the guy who wrote this article did a study whose data disproves Jeff's "Just give me what's mine" argument, finding that the amount that would be rounded off in the customer's favor was higher on average than the amount being rounded off in the store's favor. But it's behind a paywall so I can't see the methodology, boo.

Uh, yeah for this video game we are using the Ryan physics engine, just watch how the pennies fall after they've been hit with scorn and derision.

I remember my dad talking about getting rid of pennies, and that was 15 years ago.

Think about it: Davis is the only candidate that can resist total assimilation by Gerstmann. He has to be the first one to board Jeff's M. Slingshot.

Canceling the penny is something that has been tallied about for decades now. Spam thread.

You is bad speller.

No offense to Ryan, but outside of the occasional amazing quicklook, I don't know how often he is actually physic.

This, but for year! I hate the penny. It should die a horrible horrible death. I want cellphone wireless money transfers.
