re My two cents (idiom)[edit]

We need sources for material in the Wikipedia, see WP:RS and WP:V. Sorry, but common sense doesn't come into play here; if we allowed that we'd have every different person's idea of what is true by common sense competing and it'd be bedlam.

I also rather doubt that you can actually mail a letter for two cents and have it delivered. It'd be interesting to see a reliable source showing that this has been successfully accomplished. I have no idea of "my two cents" actually comes from postage rates. It might. I personally doubt it. If it does we'd need some evidence of that. Herostratus (talk) 21:33, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
