A Floor Made Of 13,000 Pennies Is Proving People Can’t Math, It doesn’t matter how smooth and clever we are, but we find ourselves in a way where we seriously dumb things at certain points in our lives. Sometimes we can blame someone else for feeding us the wrong information, but it’s just as possible that our brains were on autopilot at the exact wrong moment.
Sometime, we spend an average of nearly half of our day in this mode, our brains often manage to keep things together pretty well while we’re drifting off. But sometimes our mental cruise control will end up hitting a bump in the road and we can find ourselves saying something we know isn’t true.
Today, we’re going to see how quickly and easily this can happen and how many people can get stuck in the same pitfall. All this happened because of a floor made of pennies.
Namely, that Tonya Tooners decorated the floor with pennies, not dollars.
I guess we’re making progress?
