Why is it that they say 'put your two cents in' but they say 'a penny for your thoughts'..?
Where has that extra penny gone to?
I believe you have uncovered the scam of the century! If 100 million people put their two cents in, yet are only given back a penny for their thoughts... why "they" just got a nice vacation to the Caiman Islands!
Maybe because it's in human nature to offer more thoughts than to be awfully interested in getting anyone's thoughts.
Much of the time, people say they put their two cents in - and have actually put in a dollar-and-a-half's worth (or five-dollars' worth).
Just a question: What is the worth of these thoughts that I've offered here? (Nothing, I'm guessing...).

Someone told me of a fairly new writing site called Two Cents Worth. It was started by two women and I think it is being patterned after Bubblews from what I have read. I checked out their site, but didn't spend a lot of time there.
