Throwing money in the trash?

I had promised a post about Daring Fireball's John Gruber last week ...

I had a lot to plan for my October 31 costume party so I didn't have a lot of time to get anything posted (or written) ...

So, here's one more teaser.

Back in March 2008, Gruber posted this:



This kind of shocked me - that even if wealthy - Gruber was throwing money away.

Then, last week, I saw a post linking to a sponsorship page. Apparently, Gruber charges $2000 a week for sponsoring his feeds on his website. WOW! But, if he charged a penny less, his sponsorships would be $1999.99 - under $2000! All he would have to do is keep 52 of those pennies that he found ... or threw in the trash.
