Memorize “$19.05” and Outsmart the MTA

Yes, you need $2.50 to ride the subway, and you have $2.45 on your MetroCard.  Sure enough you miss that train all because of that nickel.

How did you end up in that situation any way?   It turns out the MTA has designed it that way.  Imagine how many tourists come to NYC and leave with balances that never get used.  Imagine how many people lose metro cards with those balances that never get used.  And even if it gets used on a later refill, the MTA gets to collect the cash earlier this way!  Win win for them, right?

But now, with some simple math, you can fight back!

Why titanium? It’s lighter, but stronger than steel. Titanium is also rustproof, hypoallergenic, and bacteria-resistant.

The handle also contains a bottle opener, an oxygen bottle key, a 0.325 inch hex nut key, and a 0.25 inch hex nut key.
