    Fi we take away pennies then you can't keep massive jars of pennies to play rummicube with... we used to take a cup of pennies each and use them in family betting games

    If you're arguing in favour of the status quo you should always reinforce this point.

    Getting rid the the penny would just add confusion to the public. There would be problems in calculation with taxes. It can get very messy. I can picture prices going up as through every stages of "goods" you are rounding up the values... cost of material, labour, transportation and market values.... everything will get more expansive. It may not seem a lot... but it adds up over time and as it progresses. Besides... is ALL coinage at face value??? So pennies cost more to make than actual cost.... but does that mean your nickels, dime, quarters, dollars - both coin and papers... are actually worth their face value. Not at all. So pay the amount it costs to make pennies... and leave things alone.

    You can speak fluent Japanese right!

    I'm completely rubbish and can't get the grammar right and also might be going to Fukuoka in the summer with a friend for 'an intensive lanaguge course'

    ^ Wow, you get that excited by a New Zealander living in Japan? How would you react if you were confronted by a real Japanese person?

    What, you thought that Location thing was just a joke? That's ... not really funny, though, is it??

    My Japanese is pretty far from fluent, but I can usually get around daily life OK.
    Good luck with that Intensive Course thing. I've got a friend in Fukuoka and it's a nice place. But I'll tell you, in case you don't know, this whole "ppl can go to a diff country n pick up teh langage real easy jst by being there" thing is a load of shit. If you wanna learn, be prepared to study your ass off. I know plenty of people who have been here 3, 4, 10 years and still can't speak shit.

    P.S. MDM: heheh

    Haaaa nooo I just never noticed it before! And I can guess that thing isn't true- Japanese is so damn hard. I've self taught since September '07 using the Internet and damn magazine translations and dramas.
    Oh and MDMike- YES I go crazy whenever I see a real Japanese person. Which leads to stalking them throughout town until I can finally pluck up the courage to pretend I'm not from England and say 'すみません、今何時ですか?'
