More than 83%
I'm watching the news this morning and they're talking about some lady that got burned...the reporter (snicker) reports (snicker) that the woman got burned on MORE THAN 83% of her body.
Now that's a pretty precise measurement. 83%. Correct?
But then they go and add the MORE THAN.
More than 83%.
Why didn't they just give the actual percentage of her charred body?
Would 84% freak people out?
And how does one go about measuring burnt flesh anyhow?
Is it math?
SO TO SUM UP:
More than 83% of reporters are idiots.
More than 83% of us wish they got burnt up.
On at least 99% of their bodies. Possibly more.
