Last month, Imgur user TonyaTooners shared an incredible DIY project in which they "tiled" 13,000 pennies to create a new, one-of-a-kind floor for their bedroom.

The user said they single-handedly glued the pennies down in a tile-like pattern and with alternating heads and tails facing up.

You should definitely take the time to read through this mind-blowing project they documented step-by-step.

BuzzFeed News has reached out to the user to learn more.

But it wasn't until this past weekend when the project really started trending on Twitter. People were stunned all over again.

But then...the conversation shifted. People tried to get smart and said that the DIY-er spent an exorbitant $13,000 on their floor.

Or was it $1,300 they "wasted"...?

Hmmm...

But exactly what could they buy?!

People who saw the ~calculations~ for $13,000 were seriously confused.

"I want you to try that math one more time big fella," someone said in response to a quote for $1,300.

People were dying laughing over the struggle on Twitter.

And calling out the handful of men ("your man crush Monday") for coming to this conclusion.

They're now confused, too.

So some people had to assist in breaking it down: 13,000 pennies equals 130 dollars. The person spent $130, at least on pennies alone, for their home project.

BuzzFeed News has verified with math.

But never do change, Twitter.
