As Ariock and Addlepated pointed out in my previous blog post, that guy’s math was out of whack to the tune of three decimal places. I’M supposed to be the mathy one! Why didn’t I catch that it should have been $425 and not $425,000?! Good catch, guys! (Not to mention Steve pointing out that an extra quarter-mil in people’s pockets would undoubtedly cause some kind of hyper-inflation.)
It’s nice to dream of possibilities, but it’s also nice to fact-check that those possibilities are, in fact, possible. Oops.
