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