Falsehoods programmers believe about prices: https://gist.github.com/rgs/6509585





Interesting list, though I'm not sure what do they mean by n. 7

For a brief time in 2008, 1 Zimbabwe dollar was very roughly equivalent to one TRILLIONTH of a United State penny. So technically a value of “1” did exist, but it was meaningless. I have some of the 100 Trillion Dollar notes from Zimbabwe from that time period.

I also have a few. You could buy a stack of 100 trillion dollar bills few a few bucks then. They are now selling for $50-$60 on eBay.

Investing in ZWL, bold move!
