    Also, dammit, it`s just a stupid ad for stupid glue.

    At first I thought it said Super Boner. That would have been really funny, especially with the shape around it.

    I used to work at a Chevron a number of years ago.... I worked the Graveyard shift, in sheer boredom, I glued a quarter to the sidewalk, where I could watch people try to pick it up. 8 years later, it`s still there. >:)

    @pinkflyd: Loonies are all gold-coloured. Maybe you thought toonie, but even then a toonie is gold on the inside and silver-coloured around it.

    I`m pretty sure that`s a Euro.

    Neagle, you might`ve found your super mutant power: finding the perfect tool for any job. It looks like it was built to remove coins glued to sidewalks.

    I thought the idea was a good one (a take on the kid`s/teen`s/bored clerk`s trick of gluing a single quarter... or whatever... to the sidewalk). The execution was poor, though. He ran the video too fast and should`ve kept a camera on the area until finally, somehow, somebody (like Neagle) was able to remove those coins.

    "What a waste of 4$. Lol.

    Actually it would be a waste of US$ 176.05, plus the price of the glue (a lot of glue). Maybe it will be more tomorrow, since this week the dollar has been losing value in comparison to real, after your subprime crisis threw dollar`s value from almost 1-1 to this 2,40 (before this week), value paid 2 years ago.

    If they`re 400 Euros, that`s $546.
    If they`re 400 Canadian (they`re not), then it would be $336.
    If they`re 400 Reals that`s $180.

    P.S. For a while, each Canadian Dollar was worth more than the American Dollar. It doesn`t mean all that much, it just means they use more pieces of paper to buy stuff than you do. It doesn`t mean they have less wealth.


    All countries ranked by per capita GDP

    someone did something like this here once, me and a buddy found it, was a bunch of 2 euro pieces glued to the ground, about 60 euro worth.
    he had me throw my coat over it and sit on the spot while he ran into a store down the street and got glue solvent for like 5 euro.

    At first I saw "Super Boner" and thought maybe he just wasn`t a very good artist, seeing as how it looked nothing like a super boner.
    More like a regular one, if you ask me.

    Other comments said they`re Brazilian coins, and also a bus has Sao Paulo written on the side. The British (not just English) `penny` is the smallest denomination we have, and we also have coins that look a lot like the one in the video which are each worth 200 pennies.
