Man Pays Fine in Pennies. Was it really worth it?

A man who tried to get even by paying a traffic ticket with $120 in pennies got upstaged by a North Dakota judge who made him stay until they were counted. Robert John Zukowski brought a garbage can full of about 12,000 pennies to Clay County District Court to pay his fine for speeding, the Fargo Forum reported. Court Administrator Jan Crossette lugged the bucket of change to a bank, which used a machine to count the money and gave her $120 in bills. Zukowski got a few pennies back in overpayment. Judge John Pearson told the newspaper he thought Zukowski's anger was misdirected. "If the person is mad at the cop, why take it out on court administration?" Pearson asked. "They're punishing the wrong people."

Josh came over today to learn how to take care of the house (he's housesitting for us). I had to walk around Wal-Mart for like three hours (literally) to shop for snacks and headphones. lol. it wasn't much fun. I think that I'm going to pack all day tomorrow... it sounds fine to me, it's better than doing school, I guess. lol Still not looking forward to getting up at 2 though.

You can also write a "check" on any form of material of any size. As long as the "check" has all of the appropriate data you can chisel it in stone. How'd the IRS like that? :)
