    In Asia, bowing to each other is used as a way to greet one another. That's where the name comes from.

    I believe it is because it looks like a salutation in many cultures.

    Lol I always thought it was because you were getting up like you just got out of bed but the greeting makes more sense.

    What do I know ... I thought it was because Arnold love them and he worked out in the morning.

    The bowing makes a lot of sense.

    If you have 3 quarters, 4 dimes, and 4 pennies, you have $1.19. You also have the largest amount of money in coins without being able to make change for a dollar.
