CALCULATED AFFECTION: Oh, the lengths that textbook publishers will go in order to provide stories and contexts for math problems, health tips, and driver safety. Check out this Tumblr blog, "Thanks, Textbooks," from textbook vendor Karl, who sells textbooks for a living but seems a tad jaded with the job.

If there were 148 hugs, how many kisses were there?” Fellow EdSurgents will surely sympathize. Got more examples? Do share!
