Can we please retire the  FEB 09 2000

Can we please retire the phrase "my two cents"? I really don't have a good reason....I just am tired of it and never liked it very much to begin with. Also annoying are the many variations on the theme: "my 1/50th of a buck", "my 1 cent" (presumably because their opinion counts for about half as much as anyone else's), and "my 10 cents" (used only by the self-righteous know-it-all). Make. It. Stop.
