lol now thats a lot of nickels... :lol: think about if it were the same amount of money but in pennies :haha: thatd be at least 100 tons right? :haha:

Ok... I got really bored in the office....

A penny weighs ~2.5 grams according to the U.S. Mint....

A nickel weighs 5 grams according to the same source....

3,600,000 nickels = 18,000,000 pennies

18,000,000 pennies = 45,000,000 grams = 45,000 Kilograms = ~99,000 lbs. (49.5 tons)

3,600,000 nickels = 18,000,000 grams = 18,000 Kilograms = ~39,600 lbs (almost 20 tons)

$180,000 takes alot of space if you think of it in those terms....

Geez... I need to go home, I'm entirely too bored.  :haha:
