So do I.  Several of them, in fact -- basically one for each desktop
where I am likely to want to do some arithmetic.  I could just use one
bc -l window and "sticky" it so that it appears in all desktops, but
I've found that the calculations I do in a given desktop depend on
which browser games I've got going in that particular desktop.  So I
don't share a single calculator session with them all.
