Re: 2.4 children?
How do you get 2.4 children? How do you get half a child?
Reminds me of an amusing incident.
An incredibly intelligent friend of mine (who used to be a programmer on mainframes for the banking sector) is currently out of work. The job centre sent him on a basic maths course. Now, I should mention that this friend has a very dry sense of humour, is very quick witted, and gets bored very easily... Not a good combination in this instance.
Not far into this course, they were doing fractions. One sum came out at 13.5. The tutor explained that you needed to use your common sense in applying the results.
"For example, you couldn't have half a child," she said.
My friend's immediate response: "Tell that to Jamie Bulger's parents."
Unsurprisingly, he was asked to leave the training facility and never return.
