People are Stupid

On Friday, I was looking at some bagels in a swanky Manhattan grocery. See I this sign:
$0.39 each

OK folks, do the math. 3*$0.39 is $1.17. So you lose two cents if you buy your bagels in groups of three.

Nu, not everyone has taken Calculus in college.

Some are misadvantaged. Or disadvantaged. Or both.

You don't need to take Calculus to learn basic arithmetic.

In, fact, you need to know basic arithmetic to take Calculus.
