It's scary how many have that impulse. My dad had to fight it.

And now there is a company in Holland selling them... http://www.uselessmachine.nl/

My father-in-law would LOVE one. We got him one of those coin-shrinking banks for Hanukkah, and he went around demonstrating the thing to absolutely everyone.

My mother-in-law would divorce us both if we gave him one, though. FIL still thinks "house with basement and attic" when it comes to acquiring such fun things. She holds him to answering "Where will we put it?" before adding tchotchkes since they're retired to an apartment-type condo.

It's actually rather fascinating to watch since the coin truly appears to shrink to about the size of a mosquito bite as it drops into the lower chamber.

Here's a link that shows the bank clearly.
