Taxes Filed ... Despite Dead Batteries

I filed our taxes yesterday.  During the tax prep my trusty calculator, purchased while I was an Iowa State University (probably 1982 or 1983), died.  It's actually kind of amazing.  A calculator purchased thirty-seven years ago has only gone through two sets of batteries.  I realize it doesn't get used that often but eighteen years per set of tiny little button batteries is amazing.

As for the taxes, this year we are getting back a bigger refund than last year.  Over six times as much as last year.  I suppose I owe someone a thank you for the bigger refund but, at the risk of sounding ungrateful, like He11 will I thank that steaming pile of excrement.
