    rofl copter... cha cha cha


    How true is this...


    Last week I purchased an item at Burger King for $1.58. The counter
    girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8
    cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the
    nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried.

    Why do I tell you this?

    Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s:

    Teaching Math In 1950

    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit?

    Teaching Math In 1960

    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is 4/5 of the price, or $80. What is his profit?

    Teaching Math In 1970

    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is $80. Did he make a profit?

    Teaching Math In 1980

    A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production
    is $80 and his profit is $20. Your assignment: Underline the
    number 20.

    Teaching Math In 1990

    A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and
    inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the
    preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit
    of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for
    class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes? (There are no
    wrong answers.)

    Teaching Math In 2005

    Un hachero vende una carretada de madera para $100. El costo de la
    producción es $80 ....

    Spatch - I worked at a Chick-fil-A for about 3 years in high school.

    I have always been good at math (ended up being a chemical engineer) but didn't usually work the cash registers - the chicks do that.
    I made the orders behind the registers (this was in a mall).

    Anyway, I can't tell you how many times I was summoned to the register to help out some dumbass that couldn't do simple math in their teeny heads.
    Some of the managers couldn't even help out in those situations.

    Yes, there has been an erosion of math skills in today's youth.

    That hilarious.
    The Wendy's by my house (though i rarely go there) is so bad (english skills) that i avoid that particular store all together. In the last ten times I have been there I seriously doubt they got my order right once.

    Odd. In reflection; the US military has begun to pull its percentile base for its ASVAB test from 1997 scores now; changes went into effect just last July... because people were scoring higher than they used to.
    AFQT (the percentile score) had been going up steadily and so the base for percentile had to be changed from its old 1980 scores. And in direct effect, AFQT scores dropped by an average of about 4-5 points. Scores on the subtests never changed; but summarily: people score more points on the exam now than they used to; particularly in math and reading.

    Maybe just that there's more stupid people working these types of jobs now

    Funny joke tho

    "A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two dogs. One of the dogs is mean and evil. The other dog is good. The mean dog fights the good dog all the time. When asked which dog wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most." -George Bernard Shaw
