Top maths whizz genius

Monday night in a restaurant I told everyone that when we split the bill, it came to 70.09.

Actual amount splitting the bill was 40.42.

The best thing was that I spent AGES working out the nine pence bit at the end and thought I was super smart to not round it up or down but to work out the exact amount. Ha!

But there be method in my madness -- this time at least. I was working out 210 divided by three, but the bill was 120. So it does make sense. But I still have no logical explanation for turning on a tap and wondering why it didn't make the light come on.

My boss was saying he'd heard someone on the radio who was "apolectic". Sigh. At least I can do the English somewhat, if not the maths.
