Disney Count support may be spotty from here. We apologize for the inconvenience.

I misread the headline whale dies in Thames

and thought of fluffy bunnies.
Cower before my devastating wit muppet.

18 = moron
19 = fucking moron
42 = The Babel Fish <proves non-existence of god etc>

The rest will be reinstated when I get home and forward the two text files to FlasherT. 

Do please keep up.

No I just wanted to see if the forum would stick on a floating point.  :-)

I imagine 19.00 is a fucking moron about a fixed point.

Ever watch the show "Good Eats"? Caught a dubious episode recently (one where he made granola bars with sunflower seeds STILL IN THE SHELL. Yummy!) where after he made home-made power bars he detailed the nutritional content. Well apparently he had some confusion between precision and accuracy, because his nutritional breakdown was like

"Sodium 42.76 mg
Carbohydrates 13.92 g
..."

When you're haphazardly tossing together varying organic goods in a flexible way, are you _sure_ that it's 42.76mg of sodium? Geesh, that brought Flashbacks of grade 9 science class, carefully documenting measurements to the 4th decimal place, only to have the teacher rightfully berate us for being idiots.

It seems that if a post consists of nothing but a number followed by a full stop, it gets padded to 2 decimal places...  We need a code review! :)

Is that the `benefit' of a weakly typed system showing through?
