With laboratory work you deal with a lot of numbers, so every now and then when one of us is feeling whimiscal we like to have a quick game of "The Price is Right." You give a couple of people some numbers and the result is between those. Easy!

Today I did a weak acid sample, got the result and found the guy who wanted the result talking to Crusty. I was in a playful mood, so I went in and said

"Gentlemen, the number is between (dramtic pause) 28.9 and 29.0. Crusty you may begin."

Crusty clapped (I swear he's seven) and said "28.4" I looked dramatically at my hand as though I have a piece of paper in my hand with the number on it, shook my head and said "Higher."

Guy said "29.7"

I shook my head and said "I repeat - the result is between 28.0 and 29.0"

"He's turn is gone! It's mine again!" Crusty butted in. We take our "Price is Right" very seriously. Very.

I nod - dramatically, of course - and Crusty thinks for a moment. "28.6" he says.

I look at my hand once more, took a breath dramtically and said "Higher."

Guy thinks for a moment and says "28.1"

Hmmm, now I don't know about you but I'm pretty sure that a) 29.7 is higher than 29.0 and 28.1 is lower than 28.6.

People scare me. I hope this guy doesn't breed.
