    50 Dollars

    Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter". Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars". One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old.

  9. How does mortality differ across countries? One of the most important ways to measure the burden of COVID-19 is mortality. Countries throughout the world have reported very different case fatality ratios – the number of deaths divided by the number of confirmed cases. Differences in mortality numbers can be caused by: Differences in the number of people tested: With more testing, more people with milder cases are identified. This lowers the case-fatality ratio. Demographics: For example, mortality tends to be higher in older populations. Characteristics of the healthcare

The purpose was to demonstrate that unregulated monopolies ru
  12. Monopoly's first creator is almost impossible to know because it was informally played by many people with their own boards and rules, until a lady patented it under "The Landlord's Game". But later on Parker Bros claimed it as their own and began suing anyone else who had any resemblance to the game, which everyone knew wasn't true. There were a few people who stood against them, but many gave in to the lawsuits and quit. Ultimately, if I remember correctly, the courts ruled that The Landlord's Game was the original, but Parkers had become a powerhouse at that point and dominated the competit
