After staring at the FFXIV Site
and watching the trailer
a few hundred times it reminds me of the old Vana'diel joke ...
"An Elvan, a Hume and a Galka walk into a chocobo stable!
An Elvan, a Hume and a Galka are headed out of Bastok and decide to rent a chocobo, they're shocked to find the rental fee to be 30gil. per chocobo, each only having 10gil. a piece decide to pitch in their share and they give the stable manager the 30gil.
sometime after leaving the manager notices that he's over charged the three by 5gil., so he sends the stable boy out to look for them to return the 5gil.
on his journey to find the three the stable boy starts to think to himself, how am I ever going to divide 5gil. between these three
, So he take 2gil. out of his satchel and sticks it in his trousers.
upon finding the three he returns 1gil. to each of the riders and heads back to town with a grin.
Now that each one of the riders has received 1gil. back this means
that they only paid 9gil. apiece for the chocobo. So three times the
9gil. equals 27gil. plus the 2gil. the stable boy kept comes to 29gil. -
Where is the other 1gil?
stable boy 2gil
Grand Total 29gil. Rental Fee 30
This actually isn’t as much a math problem, as a logic and semantics problem
Never Underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups
Fear fosters frustration; frustration grows into anger; anger leads to hatred;hatred generates violence and violence sometimes soothes.Enjoy the moment!
