I know how to do that but this forum doesn't use HTML but its own formatting language that doesn't have a feature for rotating pictures.

I thought it was all quarters, or did you add some small change in?

What if someone is within $10?

I will settle for the change in the jug. I have an estimated guess already, but I have a few questions.

Mainly, was this change saving a natural occurrence from just buying stuff? I'm wondering if any rolls were ever bought for another reason and added to the mix? Perhaps a bucket of change was added from the old machines?

Yes, just random coins from change given from buying stuff. Often I leave pennies at the point of sale, so it may be a little light on the percentage of them.

I moved to Vegas May 8th last year, and save all my change except for using ten Quarters a month for a car wash.
Recently rolled my quarters and dimes. Came out to $140. Didn't bother with the nickels or pennies.
That's spare change for a year. Mikes jar has several times that.

I think the reason the kids don't take coins out is that the jug weighs 15 kgs. They can't lift it, and the guinea pig on a string wasn't strong enough to hang on to the quarters when they dipped him in.

Surely, you jest.

My old man had one, which I have now. It's the same thing, but back in my day they were made of glass. I took silver out of it daily for cookies at school despite it weighing 4 stone.

Still have that jug, it's about half full. 3/4's full used to mean a new gun. Probably have to fill it nowadays =/

Usees old chewing gum to get out the change.

Does anyone know how to truly rotate an image?


It's not truly rotating an image, but creating a new image: Just take a screenshot of the not-really rotated image, crop out the rest of screen, and ta-da.


Speaking of jugs of coins.....when my dad was in his early 20's or so, he had a jug like that, 3/4 full of change. One day someone broke into his place and stole it, along with a 12 gauge shotgun. He filed the police reports and all that, but nothing ever came of it. But then, a few years ago he got a knock on his front door by the police, asking if he was the owner of the gun (they gave a description), as it had been used in some robberies. He said yeah, sorta, but it was stolen from him many years ago. He got the gun back, but didn't get the jug full of change or any of the other stuff that had been stolen. He ended up restoring the shotgun since the bast*** who stole it didn't keep it in good shape.


EDIT: Unless there are some more recent developments, I know what I'm going to guess for this.


Pro-Tip, I think: Casinos will count your change for you. They'll throw 'em in the change-counter-machine-do-hicky. No need to go to the bank and/or hand-roll the change.
