Miscellaneous ponderings


With dentists universally recommending soft toothbrushes, why are hard toothbrushes still made?

When the EU made the new Euro money, why did they still go ahead and make a one cent coin, even though it apparently costs more than one cent to produce?

Why do people write checks at the grocery store? Doesn’t every bank offer a free Visa/Mastercard check card with their accounts nowadays?

    Maybe they’d rather get the couple-day float a paper check can give you?

    Also, a written check gives me more info because I use check stubs that I fill out right then, while I don’t always save receipts in an organized fashion.

What do you think?
