Chefs for the Norwegian Olympic Team accidentally ordered 15,000 eggs instead of the 1,500 they had intended. Apparently the error was caused by translation software and a misunderstanding of the South Korean numbering system. 

I am completely sympathetic. Once at the end of a long road trip I ordered four chicken strips at a fast food place on the 401. The counter person gave me four orders of chicken strips, 16 all together. Fortunately the people I was travelling with were hungry.
