    Default Bored? Try This - Which Coin is Correct

    Only one of these images of a penny is correct. Which one is it? Check your answer and find out "what's going on" by clicking on a coin.

    That's pretty neat...something you look at every day, but you really have to think about it for a while.

My dream and I hope you don't find this too crazy is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    I can see how this would have been difficult for you.

    A dime would have been tough, too, right?

    I got it right on the first try too.

    But it was mostly fluke. I'm thrown off by the right facing image too.

    I got it right which isn't surprising, I used to collect coins in high school. But what is pretty cool is I was correct person 1010101. That's cool!
