BLUE PLACIDOLA
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who would lose in a head-to-head race with a glacier. Family and friends use you either as a paperweight or boundary marker. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time waiting for visits from door-to-door solicitors wanting to buy either a coffee cup commemorating the 2000 Olympics or a birthday gift for your grandmother. Be on the lookout for strangers with large satchels of used undergarments. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter I, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 008465. Your preferred shopping venue is department stores. Your special symbol is the at sign (@).

You are a happy shopper and you seldom fret over trivial details of a market exchange, in part because you are astute enough to get moderately low prices and relatively good deals.


This isn't me! What am I?

The average fixed cost curve is one of three average curves. The other two are average total cost curve and average variable cost curve. A related curve is the marginal cost curve.

Learning All About EDUCATION

It's a bright spring morning, the sort of day that makes poets and pedestrians pontificate profusely about our wondrous world. But, wait... IT'S TEST DAY! You're late for an exam! You hurriedly roam the school halls, opening door after endless door along an infinite hallway, in search of your exam. All you discover, though, is Maurice Finklestein who smirks knowingly while ridiculing your tardiness. Why do we do it? Why do we put ourselves through 12 to 20 years of oppression in the halls of academia, learning stuff of questionable value? Why? Why? WHY?
