Useful object of the day: The Penny

Our little guy is learning to count coins in school, which is slightly tricky, because who the heck uses coins these days? While he is wrestling with telling a Nickle from a Quarter, I tripped over this discussion thread on what to use pennies for, and it got me wondering -- what could they be used for?

Turns out, plenty. Like...

OK, not exactly as useful as say dental floss or tin foil, but still surprisingly handy.

Got any uses to add?
