Well, that was amusing.

I'm one of those people who tend to pick up coins I see while walking. I am also a scientist, so I tend to collect data. So--I made a coin log.

Between February 11 and May 31, inclusive, I picked up: 4 quarters, 24 dimes, 7 nickles, 133 pennies, 1 Canadian penny, and 2 $1.25 bus tickets.

Total value found over 3.5 months (111 days): $7.59.
Average per day: ~7 cents.
# days I found something: 73
Average per "lucky" day: ~10 cents.

I'm not sure which is funnier. That I tend to pick up coins (hey, free money is good), that I decided to start a coin log, or that I actually computed the statistics above.

Hi, my name is Verdant and I'm a dork.
