People are really good at dealing with cognitive dissonance.

It lets them easily smoke cigarettes even after being told they are so bad for you.

Anyway as for making sense, my dad always had trouble with zero multiplied by anything.

The rule is, anything X zero = zero.

Dad said he could see 0 x 3 = 0 because you have nothing three times.
But 3 x 0 troubled him, because if you have 3... how can you have it zero times. I tried to explain that was the point. You have three no times, which is nothing. Didn't make sense to him.

Sometimes science is not logical. Helium is not logical!!!!! That thing about helium balloons in your car... crazy!
