    The surprise explanation behind the U.S. government's sensational but false warnings about mysterious Canadian spy coins is the harmless poppy quarter, the world's first colourized coin.
    Sensational? I doubt anyone here even heard of this.

    On the news they said that the US government went through inspecting 30,000 coins before giving up. That's where your tax dollars are going

    I hope they kept the coins for use when the US dollar finally gets below the loonie

    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein
