Strange facts that you never wanted to know

Here is a fantastic trick to help you with your calculations.

 

x% of y = y% of x
So, for example, if you needed to work out 4% of 75 in your head, (which sounds very hard)  just flip it and and do 75% of 4, which is easier.

 

18% of 50 is hard to calculate.  But 50% of 18 is simple!   7% of 50 (difficult)  50% of 7 = 3.5

 

You're welcome.

Thought I would share this...

 

DHL/Deutsche Post  address recognition machines can not read "White text"...

 

So, if you have your own printed labels wit lets say a blue background and white address printed on it... The machine will reject it, then a worker will need to enter it correctly into the system!

 

How Bizare!

Oh man I love Oingo Boingo, and yes, it does always surprise me so many people don't know about Danny Elfman's history with them. 

 

I saw them at the Ritz in NYC in the 80s.  One of the greatest shows I ever attended - just an amazing band, especially live

 

could have even been this show?
