Too many coins?

Well I never knew that, you can refuse too many coins as settlement of a debt. Who in their right mind would, I don't know.

I learned of that many, many years ago while still in school (before you
were even born) - along with many other useful things!

Perhaps you should have gone to school too?

I learnt much more useful stuff than what you did.

if I offered you a million penny coins in settlement of a 10,000 bill, how
the heck would you carry them away?

Three and a half tonnes is nothing to Uncle Peter, he would carry that
in one hand.

The same way as you delivered them to me.

You could get it in a car in a few loads. Worth three trips for £10K.

I wouldn't fancy having to count it, and I certainly doubt you'd physically
be able to move it in just three car loads.

Clearly not how to properly compose a sentence.
I can't believe you said that. I believe I now say the word "whoosh" and get a free beer.

You can get a tonne in a car in one go.

I remeber years ago Blue Peter (I think) showed a pile of rice which they
claimed contained approximately 1,000,000 grains. That alone would have
pretty much filled a car. I suspect a million pennies would create rather a
bigger pile.

A penny is 20mm x 20mm x 1.5mm. If they're stacked fairly nicely, they'd use up that in a square shape, ie. 600 cubic mm each. 1,000,000 pennies would therefore take up 600,000,000 cubic mm = 0.6 cubic metres. Not very much at all.

If you did, it would be heavily overloaded. The payload of my large
estate car is 595kgs, which includes the driver. A small car based van I
used to own had a payload of 310kgs.

You only learned the "useful stuff" that is likely to put you in the 'dock'
or behind bars for a while - or is it probable that's where you did learn
it? ;-)

But I suppose that is the fate of all gobby idiots who have a vacant space
between their ears.
