Alyss:
You forgot one:
Teaching Math in 2004:
A logger sells a load of lumber for \$100. His profit is \$20. As he's
driving
through Miami to deliver it, his rig gets hijacked and he's shot in the
stomach.
How much of a net operating loss can he be expected to incur, if
A) no hospital will take out of state insurance
B) the police suspect him as the one setting up the crime
C) he gets fired for this being the third time it has happened in a month.
Be sure to factor in the costs associated with lost time and wages
identifying the
thugs from a lineup of thousands, and the associated cleanup costs when his
rig
is found in a week, stripped, in a canal.
