The Remainder of 50% + 50%

It’s not particularly the story in general that I’m pointing to—rather a boneheaded statement within the story.

Nebraska Man May Have Rare Coin

Man gets 1804 silver dollar, worth millions, as retirement gift.

[via Fark]

Note how the lucky recipient said he’ll divvy up the earnings. “…he’ll split the sale of the coin 50-50 with the man who gave it to him. He’ll spread the rest around to charities, his wife, and five children.”

Hmm, if I fit into one of those three categories that qualify for receiving “the rest,” I’m not sure I’d be too thrilled.
