Water bottles

No, your eyes do not deceive you. Otha Anders has kept his change in 15 large water bottles all these years. Next time you hang out by the water cooler, try imagining that the entire tank is full of pennies. How many of them would fit in there, do you think? And how much money would that amount to?

To really understand exactly how many pennies were in Anders’ collection, we have to go back to the beginning of his special collection. It started with a single penny. One day, Anders had found a shiny coin like that somewhere on the floor. And where most of us shrug our shoulders and put the change into a wallet somewhere, he decided to do things differently. An obsession had begun: from then on, every penny he encountered ended up in his collection.
