I was at a Toastmasters event last week where the speaker commented he 'was paid well because there's lots of digits in the number; unfortunately there aren't any other digits." Kind of reminds me of here. Or volunteering in general.

Too bad he he wasn't using a unary number system: that way, a (very long) string of zeros could still amount to large number.

I make the joke that I'm paid a seven digit salary..however two digits are to the right of the decimal.

My first real job was factory work at $3.35 per hour. That's close to zero.
