    Default Are you as smart as a third-grader?

    Can you answer this math problem?

    ”Janell had 15 marbles. Then she lost some of them. How many marbles does Janell have now?”

    Many adults allegedly struggle to give the answer.

    Less than 15.
    Walmart has replacements.


    Keep calm, persistence beats resistance.

    Really. The marble police will impounded Janell's remaining marbles for being an unfit marbler, so none. And is she steamed!

    Or, she called Amazon and said the shipment arrived short of marbles and then they just ship another fifteen and with a sincere apology. That's I how I cornered the market in tiddlywinks. So Janell's friends gathered in support and the ones with many marbles all donated one marble each, and since Janell is very popular she became endowed with a magnitude of marbles and so you'd have to just say, many. Janell now is fat on marbles and starting to give back and hire marblers with issues, to help spread the word. Janell has become a power-hungry MINO. She is marbillionaire.

    And since that thing with Gary, she has been troit.
