#5369: Math is hard.

So, today I had a caller who was surprised that buying two new iPhone 7s on device payment--which totals $55 per month--would actually add $55 per month to his bill. "The saleswoman told me it would only add $7!"

Oh well.

In 100 years, apparently all English speakers will sound like they come from sub-Saharan Africa.

This story depressed the hell out of me. Particularly this bit:
With enormous gratitude to Advance Man Extraordinaire Haber, I am popping up again to share our excitement about the Reprise of Our Gang’s visit to the farm in Lovettsville. And I thought I’d share a couple more notes: We plan to heat the pool, so a swim is a possibility. Bonnie will be Uber Service to transport Ruby, Emerson, and Maeve Luzzatto (11, 9, and almost 7) so you’ll have some further entertainment, and they will be in that pool for sure.

We've been extremely busy.

So busy, in fact, that we haven't played any WoW for days and days. Friday and Saturday nights I was too busy even to blog. It's not going to get any better, either.

Well, I'd better get after me chores.
