apparent "attraction" of air bubbles to the penny probably has to do with the
dirt on the penney. Air bubbles on a dust or "dirt" nucleus, so anything
that is not scrubbed clean will have air bubbles. That is only one lesson I
learned from bartending!

Subject: Tossing a penny
in the waterbath. . .
I'm wondering if anyone has heard that putting a clean
penny in the bottom of your waterbath will attract air bubbles resulting in no
bubbles under your ribbons. Someone at work did it, and the next day it
seemed that everyone had a penny in their waterbath. I've heard it works
because it's a copper coin, but I simply do not understand how this could
work(although it seems that it does). I would be interested in hearing
from anyone that has done this or anyone whom might be able to offer an
explanation as to why it would work. Maybe they're just making a wish
for no bubbles when they throw it in? I don't know.
