Does anyone else analyze adds?
Just this morning on the radio a young woman was bragging to her friend how she saved up to 25 cents a gallon on gas using an app. She said some months she got up to $300 back. .25 x 1200 gallons = $300. 1200 gallons in a car getting 30 MPG = 36,000 miles. So she is driving over 1000 miles a day for her statement to her friend to be true.
Another example is the zero turn add that says how many acres their mower will cut in an hour. Problem is if you multiply their stated top speed x their largest deck width you come up about 60% of their stated acres and my calculation was driving straight the whole time.
Is the general public really this gullible? Do we just accept anything we hear as fact and not do any research? What happened to truth in advertising?
