QotD: Pop Tabs

Question: Have you ever collected pop tabs? For what purpose?

My Answer: When I was in college, a local beer distributor offered a free keg for a gallon jug full of pop tabs. Rob and I collected them, then didn't have time to drink a keg (or throw the party), so we figured they must be worth something if you could get $60 in free beer out of it. So I collected darn near 10,000 over the next few years. I never really cared about the value (and I learned a few months ago that they really have none beyond their weight as aluminum), but it did help me visualize how much Coke I drank for a number of years.
