There are now 3 pennies in the pile.

I don't want to pay extra for disposal. I add all of my construction debris to the pile.

There are now three pennies at a few hundred pounds of ceramic debris in the pile.

I call a scrapper.  He takes the pennies, the tub, and the city notice so nobody thinks he stole it.

I see the homeless man in the toilet. Assuming he is working (I can’t understand a word he’s saying), I decide to pay him for his trouble.

There are now 5000 pennies and a homeless man stuck in a toilet in the pile.

I see what you did there...

 

As an engineer, I am morally opposed to unitless numbers so I assign an arbitrary set of units to the 5000.
