Stopping production of pennies won't stop lazy customers taking them out of circuation. So without a supply of new coins coming into circulation shopkeepers will quickly run out.

People expect to be able to go into a shop, pay for something and be given change. So the shop owners will be forced to come up with a new policy on how they give change in the absense of any supply of pennies.

Driving a car isn't hard millions do it.

I've waited until I was 37-years-old to learn how to drive. My father wasn't going to teach me as a teenager to drive stick on his one-ton flatbed that he put a million miles on in ten years. Since Silicon Valley has a well-developed transit system, I got around just fine without having a need for a vehicle. One day my father abandoned his old car in my carport. I had not choice but to get my driver license and take possession of the car. Took me three years to find out about all the repairs that he didn't tell me about. It's easier to own a car when you're more mature and financially responsible, especially if your father is DIYer who doesn't believe in mechanics.

I've already told you that I'm not a moderator. I don't have mod points to waste.

I'm sorry to see that you have a bump on your head. Yes, that would explain a lot.

Also - do yourself a favor before you play "SiDeWaLk-ShRiNk of /.' - get a psychiatric sciences degree, a formal examination of myself given in a professional psychiatric environs & a license to practice it 1st before you make a BIGGER FOOL OF YOURSELF showing your "delusions of grandeur" @ being a psychiatric pro with WEAK off topic illogical ad hominem attacks that fail vs. me (just like your downmods ALWAYS do).

There is no uni degree in Germany that requires english or proper english, why should it?

Out of the three or four languages Europeans are supposed to learn English isn't one of them? No wonder the Brits left the European Union in a huff. ;)

On the other hand, what do you find wrong in his sentence?

How it was written contradicts the statement that the OP graduated from a university. He came across as being a graduate of American public schools, which is what a university education is supposed to fix. If you run the text through a readability measurement, it comes out at the fourth grade level. I never went to high school, I got an A.A. degree in General Education, transferred and got kicked out of the university in my junior year, and I later went back to get an A.S. in Computer Programming with a 4.0 GPA. Despite not graduating from high school or the university, I write at the 11th grade level. The average American reads at the seventh grade level.

Doing unjustifiable downmods to hide truth on YOUR PART is weak & you know it

I don't moderate on Slashdot. That makes your statement FALSE.

You need to something about your anger issues. Venting in public is not healthy.

P.S.=> ANYTHING I wrote is easily substantiatable fact - which just KILLS "your kind" doesn't it? Yes & that's why you tried to "hide it" w/ downmods (which I can post in UNLIMITED FASHION easily to get you to "run dry" of those unjustifiable downmodpoints - lol, you can't even WIN AN ELECTION - do you think you can win vs. me? NO way)... apk

I'm a moderate conservative. We're difficult to kill.

Serious question: is any of the money used to pay for the lawsuits and recounts actually taxpayer money? I thought it all came from Stein's campaign (donations).

From what I've been reading, there are direct costs and indirect costs. The donations are paying for the direct costs. The taxpayers are paying for the indirect costs of the extra people that the counties may need to hire to get the recount done in a timely fashion, especially if the ballots are being counted by hand. The recounts have to be done before the electors meet in two weeks.
