You'd get wet and the water isn't necessarily sanitary.

It's a lot of effort for not a lot of money.

Local security would probably stop you.

You'd appear mentally ill.

You could potentially be fined more money than you could potentially gain.

No, but I need books that my parents won't buy, and I'm too lazy to sell stuff or mow people's lawns.

If it seemed like a decent amount, fvck yeah. But if it's just like a few pennies or something, then no. It's october and it's cold out, it's just not worth sticking my arm in a bunch of water.

I'm much more the type to throw the cans and bottles I find on the side of the road into my backpack on the way home. I can take them back to be recycled and get the money! So yeah. Money, recycling, and less ugly litter. No bad reason to do that, really.

I'll take you to a lucrative fountain during Summer then... we'll see how you feel when you're put on the spot.

I just don't think the average sane person who isn't desperate for money is going to do such a thing, but after a few drinks who knows...

No, but I need books that my parents won't buy, and I'm too lazy to sell stuff or mow people's lawns.

You're considering weighing through water (or is it "waying" I'm too lazy to search, even though a google search would take less time than this insert explaining my laziness) in the middle of the night for coinage, most of which is pennies, nickles, and some quarters. But not mowing a lawn or hawking something on craigslist or ebay?

I mean, really, any fountain that is shallow enough for you to just wade in at the shins is going to be slim pickings, most of the good stuff has hard access, and is deep (those are the ones that build up a ton of coins over a long period of time, the rest are routinely emptied), so it would take much longer and be far more uncomfortable. Plus, you couldn't quickly leave if cops show up.

Man, I sure wish we had those kind of fountains where I live! lol Seriously, though . . . I think I'd be too embarrassed to be wading out there in the water in front of a bunch of people, and planning a nighttime heist of "fountain coins" just seems too petty. . .
