raiding is generally extremely monotonous unless you're playing with very good players, and then it's usually autistic unless you have the amazing fortune to be playing somewhere that's managed to put together a large number of people who aren't autistic or bad at the game, and convinced them to let you join in.>it could've been in the presidents suit or in an ISIS bomb factory.
I was thinking more along the lines of being used as an improvised screwdriver to get into something in a pinch, the last bit of change scraped together and used to by some little single sweet by an exuberant youngster, or maybe just picked up by someone having a bad day and being the thing that inspires them to take a more positive outlook - "Find a penny, pick it up, and all the day, you'll have good luck"
