not so special


Dan saw this in Dunkin Donuts. I wonder how much that coffee actually weighs.

And it is apparently quite ordinary coffee.

I think this also qualifies for the *Blog* of *Unnecessary* Asterisks and the Ω Blog Ω of Ω Unnecessary Ω Muffins (those are supposed to be muffins).

This is quite a good deal as a pound of this is $8.50 at the grocery store... And Brian, those look like Indianapolis Colts symbols! How'd you make them?

Does this mean I could get 83 pounds for $14.998?

"I wonder how much that coffee actually weighs."

A "pound of coffee" weighs 3 pounds, of course. It says so right there on the sign.

That may actually be sufficient to qualify it as special, though it's more of a short-bus kind of special.

@ eilbeback

That's an Omega. You can make special characters in HTML with the right code. For this one, I used:
& Omega ;

Only without the spaces. Try it. It's ς ω ε ε τ
