Three alternative uses for pennies
A new way to use your spare change
1. Pennies can be used for measuring things without a ruler. The coins are exactly .15 centimeters thick and .75 of an inch in diameter. Memorize this, and with some quick math, you'll be able to give measurements on the go.
2. Pennies can also be used to make an old glass of wine taste fresh again. If your wine smells stale and even a bit rubbery, that means it has sulfur and compounds called thiols. Find a penny that was created before 1982, properly sanitize it, and swirl it in the glass of wine. The copper in the penny binds to the sulfur compounds and removes the smell.
3. The third way to use pennies is to stack them up to stable a wobbly chair or table. Stack as many as needed, then glue a piece of felt material to the bottom to prevent any scratches on the floor.
