2687: "Division Notation"

Post by ratammer »

Title text: Science tip: Scientists hardly ever use the two-dot division sign, and when they do it often doesn't even mean division, but they still get REALLY mad when you repurpose it to write stuff like SALE! ALL SHOES 30÷ OFF!

I didn't even think schoolchildren did long division that much any more.
