Honestly, what would you do if you found $1,000,000 in a bag... in nickels?

I would keep it. For sure. Just in my closet and spend it slowly so nobody would notice. Wait, what? Nickels? That’s got to weigh hundreds of pounds, I couldn’t get that out of here in secret.

If I knew I who it belonged to, I would give it in back. If I didn’t know who belonged to and I could spend it without any problems I would do that. In nickels? I’d take it a little at a time I guess.

Morality verses economy, oh boy. I would probably bank it and spend it as usual, pay taxes if I had to and just treat it as some extra income. Nickels, I’d just roll um’ up and exchange it for cash.

Keep it, keep it casual. I’d approach nickels slowly, it would take some effort to move it initially but I could call a couple of friends for help. I’m good for a ton myself but seriously, let’s think: a nickel is about 5g, times 20,000,000 is 100,000Kg or just over 100ish U.S. tons so it would take a half-ton pick-up 200 trips. I’m in.

Run the other way!

I'm very, very allergic to nickel(s).
