See, if the $2 coins had the property of never being called into question by anyone then that would be the way to go. I mean look at this: I can't exchange the coins for bills. I can't resell things for bills. I can't possess bills basically. If I want to keep my money in the bank and withdraw it I have to get them to give it to me in coins. There's no good way to launder it so I hope there's a spell protecting me from the IRS.

I'd 3D print a plastic piece to line my pockets, and then sit with my knees pointed upwards. The plastic lining will act as a slide for the coins to roll endlessly out of. I'd sit on a ladder and go to coinstar once the pile of coins reach the height of the ladder.

lets see call it 3s to take a coin out of your pocket and deposit it in a pile 3s*20*$2=$40/min now you probably can't keep up this rate of repetitive motion for an entire hour, so let's be somewhat conservative and say that while you are 'working', you are pulling coins out of your pocket for 15 minutes out of the hour. 15*40=$600/hr. multiplying by 2000 hours for a 40 hour a week job with 2 weeks off during the year, you'd be making $1.2M/year so that is a very high cutoff to where your job would be worth more than this power. however pulling coins out of your pocket all day is likely to get really boring, really fast. so if you have a job you like that is somewhat high paying, it is likely to be worth more than this power and you are better off with the 300k. alternatively however there is the possibility of settling for less money, that is, only do it for maybe 500 hours over the year and earn $300k p.a. and use the rest of your free time for something more interesting. so the 300k is a vastly inferior option, it is strictly inferior for an income level of up to around 150-300k, at that point it is superior only if the utility of doing your job rather than pulling out money part time and doing whatever for the remainder is positive, at around $1.2M it becomes superior only if doing your job full time is preferable to pulling out money 40 hours a week, at around $2-2.5M you are reaching the maximum physical limit of how much money you could pull out in a year, and the 300k becomes superior as long as you are indifferent or prefer pulling out money over your job less than you prefer making more money. also of note are the physical effects. pulling out money all day is going to make your arm pretty ripped. since 'pocket' is singular presumably it only works for one pocket, youd need reversible pants and switch off pulling arms every few hours or ruin your physique. even doing this your arms are likely to grow out of proportion to the rest of your body.

>>6795166 Besides, you don't even know if the $2 coins are legal tender, is there a magical wizard treasury that authorizes these coins? Eventually someone is going to get suspicious that my only source of income is $2 magical coins, and the IRS will buttfuck me.

>>6795170 You can't convert to bills according to the rules. You could: >take coins to bank for credit >buy gold, take gold to bank or convert to cash >buy shit and return it for cash Even if they stipulate that your hand must grasp the coin in your pocket in order for it to duplicate when you pull it out, you'd still make bank just taking coins out all day.

$2 coins, all the way. Only 150,000 pulls 'til you make up the difference. Plus, you never have to worry amount carrying around money again! It would be so convenient. Also, it's magic! $300,000 is not as exciting as a magic power!

>>6795052 Well, except that it's not actually infinite. It's clearly limited by the maximum lifespan of a human being, times the value of the coin you get, times the rate at which you draw coins from your pockets. Being generous, like drawing $2 per second 24/7 for 100 years, that's only like 6 billion dollars. Being more realistic, like working at it only 40h a week with some vacations (because let's be honest, you can take vacations), that's around a billion dollars. If option 1. was getting 10 billion dollars, it would be by far a much much better option than option 2 regardless of how you use option 2. Being realistic, I'd take option 1 even if it was only like 10 million dollars, because it's maybe only a percent of what I'd get by working my ass off for option 2 but with no constraint.
