I can not seem to fathom why people always ask me what the 10% penalty amount will be on their account.

They are mostly teachers and they are telling me they are really that stupid that they can't calculate 10% of a value. God help us all. No wonder or country is falling to poo if the general public can 't seem to know simple math!

Ok I got it, so a typo happens when you are pissed and going too quickly. It has been fixed.

But still there is no excuse for not being able to do basic math.

I saw a lady on that smarter than a 5th grader show who was freakin retarded. I can't remember all of them now except these two:

The battle of "X" was fought in which state. (can't remember the battle)

she says, "well, that was the revolutionary war, and I know all rev war battles were in the east. I'm going to say Washington"

Next question, "Hanoi is the capital of what country?"

Lady says, "I'm thinking of......Japan, but that's not right. i'm also thinking of.....China. But I know the capital of China, and it's not Hanoi...so it has to be North Korea!"

They had her father, uncle, and husband on site. They were all cracking up. Foxworthy said, "how do you all feel about her answer" They said, "Terrible, absolutely terrible". The only good part about the whole thing, was that each time she said something dumb (and she did for the first 3 questions) they would crack up before Foxworthy even gave the right answer.
