It must be one of those days. You know - one of those days where you're waiting in line for coffee, counting your change, and ask yourself, "Why is it that the value of US coins doesn't increase with size?" I'm sure others have thought about it, maybe written about it, but I'm still standing in line pondering this little mystery... Was it designed this way to thwart some kind of money laundering scheme? Or maybe it's just plain bureaucracy? Who knows... maybe it has something to do with the time period in which each coin was introduced? Damn you little mysteries of life!

And then, after hitting the Internet, all is set right.
