I’m still not quite sure why everyone’s so overly jubilant about the anniversary of a disaster, but it seems the world has gone Titanic crazy, including the Royal Mint. It’s pumped out a fancy looking commemorative £5 coin to mark the occasion, which you can buy for a whole £82.50, plus shipping of course.
Sure, the penny CGP Grey is talking about might be the American one cent coin, but the same goes for our pretty much useless 1p coin. When was the last time you saw a vending machine take less than a 5p coin? And all those crummy £0.99 sales tactics -- that's £1 whichever way you carve it up -- who cares about that 1p you're potentially saving?
I don't know how this guy managed to build a 3,118 coin coin tower on top of a single coin on the corner of a table but boy did he do it. It took him seven hours, over $200 (£125) in change plus some presumably insane weed smoking to pull it off.
