M: Mom, I counted to 850 Friday at school.
Me: Really? How long did it take you?
M: (with the are you crazy tone) 850 seconds!!
Me: Really, and why did you decide to do that?
M: The teacher told me that there are no A's in any number until you get to a thousand, I had to prove it to myself.
Me: (quickly counting in my head) Oh, you are right, I didn't know that! B (my high schooler), did you know that?
B: Nope! (on the phone) H, did you know there are no A's in the numbers until you get to a thousand? .... Eight is spelled EI, not A!!!
And this is how knowledge spreads!
