I've often been through a checker at a store to have the total of a long list of items sum out to a whole number, like $80.00. The cashier should most of the time disclaim something like "wow, that something. What are the chances of that happening?"
I would say to her, or him, that the odds are the same as for it to sum to any other number like $82.57. Which, if it did, she wouldn't have thought anything about it.
It's just a number
That's my thinking.
Okay Mr Math. So I went to the grocery tonight, below is my receipt. What are the chances of you mentioning an $80.00 checkout total, me reading about it, and getting the same amount the same day.
Our magnetic fields have melded for a brief moment.
Yes, in Japan, as in many places I expect. It is reversed, to be read in descending order, which makes more sense if you think about it. 13/11/12 or since they still use the reigning emperor's years in "office" for many official documents, it would be 25/11/12
