New Math

Posted in General at 6:01 pm by Ian

After experiencing the cash bar at the company Christmas party, I decided to invest in a flask, which I purchased from Linens <letter> Things.

It’s a five piece flask set. If you count the box. It comes with a flask, two little metal cups, a funnel. And, of course, the box. To bring it up to five. The box has a little pronged key that opens it. So, that takes it up to six pieces.

But, I checked further, and there are actually two copies of the key, so that’s seven pieces. And they came in a little zip lock bag: eight pieces. That lock mechanism probably has a few movable pieces, so I bet we could get it up to an even 10.

The marketing department really phoned that one in, I think.
