    Buy in bulk, that’s the secret.

    Over the years, I’ve never understood why the starving children in the US of A can’t be helped first?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if some teens and, sadly, some adults thought the same thing when reading about feeding starving children for 49¢ a day.

    Unfortunately, they charge by the MONTH, not by the DAY. Thus, considering a monthly average of approximately 30.4375 days (taking into account a leap year every 4 years), they’d actually be paying approximately $14.91 a month, which the company would actually round up to about $14.99 or so, which assumes a monthly average of approximately 30.5918 days, which actually means they charge for an extra 3.7032 hours.

    (Too confusing for you? No worries — the most important numbers are in boldface.)

    Nice math!!!!! The average American school doesn’t teach much of anything anymore, so I doubt that most anyone could understand your figures!! Many teens, if they even HAVE a summer job, can’t make change even if it shows up on the register!!! That’s SAD!!!!!!

    I wish I could grab something from McDonald’s for 49¢. (Catruled has a point, unfortunately. I also don’t think fast food joints are ubiquitous in developing countries.)

    I was one of those kids. We didn’t have math textbooks at my public school, for any of the math classes. Without textbooks the teachers didn’t feel compelled to teach, and they didn’t. I had a nice game day football uniform though, even though I was shanghaied onto the team, and only stood on the sidelines during games.

    I wonder why that is too. I think that would involve the teaching of nutrition, which would go against the big corporate food companies who sell junk food. If it conflicts with any interests, Americans give up quickly.

    My dad was in a prison camp in Germany during WWII. He had math textbooks there, that he could study from and math teachers helping him learn math. I didn’t have math textbooks or anyone teaching math to me here.

    When I was a kid they used to advertise that for 2c you could give a cup of milk to a starving child. Therefore I thought we were being ripped off at school as the milk was 4c. And I was only in first grade.

    Agree that our country looks to help everyone but its citizens, especially children. Local heart hospital has photos of Nancy Reagan children from some other country that they had done heart surgery on. I wonder how many children in our local area could not get the same surgery because they could not pay.

    I am a colonial era reenactor and interact in first person (a person of the period) and in third person (myself) with a lot of people. Children know nothing of history, not even the basics of the American Revolution, their parents do not know much either. A group of us were at a middle school with the 8th graders coming through during their social studies period. They went to 3 different areas for 15 min an area. Husband and I were talking about life, clothing etc. varying it to what each group of childrenseemed interested in (we were in first person). They had recently studied the American Revolution – they did not even seem to have heard of Lexington and Concord or the Continental Congress. Patriotic holidays are no longer taught either, even in the lowest grades. These holidays were an introduction to history when I was a kid.

    Interesting! I am just now reading about colonial history. I was greatly inspired by the newly discovered fact that George Washington’s mother didn’t like him and was generally a very difficult person. A lot of new info is just coming to light about George Washington as his papers are read at U of Virginia.
