Very Important Checkmarks for a DXer

And Now For Something Completely Different

This is a little plastic badge Toyota sent to me "celebrating one million Prius vehicles in America," along with some statistics:
  • "Since the vehicle's introduction IN 2000, Prius People like you have saved an estimated 941,012,817 gallons of gas in the U.S. - that's $2,361,752,182 in saved fuel costs."
  • "You've also saved enough CO2 to equal the weight of six million SUVs!"

Yes, the letter was addressed Greetings, Prius Person!
Yes, they somehow calculated the number of gallons and dollars to 9-10 decimal places. 
Yes, that is their superscript in CO2, not mine.

What is interesting about the badge itself is that it apparently is "completely different."  The green insert was computer generated, not serially printed.  You will never see another one just like this. 


NP:
"Survival"
Yes
