price.  What is his profit?

Teaching Math in 1960:  A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the
price, or $80.  What is his profit?

Teaching Math in 1970:  A logger exchanges a set "L" of lumber for a set  "M" of money.  The cardinality of set
"M" is 100.  Each element is worth one dollar.  Make 100 dots representing the
elements of the set "M".   The set "C", the cost of production, contains 20 fewer points than set  "M."  
Represent the set "C" as a subset of set "M" and answer the following question:  What
is the cardinality of the set "P" for profits?

TOP 8 MORONS OF 2005...

AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership. He received a
$26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.
Police in Oakland, CA spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home.
After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police
line, shouting, "Please come out and give yourself up."
An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different
automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.
A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the  money in the cash drawer.
Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself
for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.
Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself
during a lineup.  When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words:

Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA,
some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their
brand new 22 foot boat, going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter
how much power they applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina,
thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong.  A thorough topside check revealed
everything in perfect working condition. The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down,
and the propeller was the correct size and pitch.  So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water
to check underneath.  He came up choking on water,  he was laughing so hard.
NOW REMEMBER...THIS IS TRUE. Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer.

when the man felt a drop hit his nose. "I think it's raining" he
said to his wife.

"No, that felt more like snow to me" she replied.

"No, I'm sure it was just rain" he said.

Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument

minor communist party official walking toward them.  "Let's not
fight about it", the man said, "Let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether
it's officially raining or snowing."

As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us, Comrade Rudolph, is it
officially raining or snowing?"

"It's raining, of course!" he replied, and walked on.

The man quietly replied: "Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear...
