Bad Math Day

I've always been fond of the quote "the lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math." It's sort of like "There are 10 types of people in the world - those who understand binary and those who do not," but without the geeky overtones.

But The Register today has a news story that really drives home someone having a bad math day:

My favorite quote from the story:

"I phoned Camelot and they fobbed me off with some story that -6 is higher, not lower, than -8, but I'm not having it."
