What's the Big Deal About Copper?
Why are all these Hawaiians digging up utility lines or chopping down telephone poles to steal copper wiring?
A 47-year-old man accused chopping down a utility pole to steal its copper wiring was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass. He also faces several felony charges.
Is there some huge black market demand for copper wiring that i didn't know about? If they want copper, i think typer195's got tons of pennies he hates to carry around. We could just steal them.

Except that since 1982, pennies are mostly zinc.
