Suppose cfunny takes six hot water enemas as follows:
1. One cup (4 oz) short of 6 quarts of water at 105.6 degrees F, with soapy water
2. 6 quarts of water at 115.3 degrees F, with soapy water
3. 6 quarts of water at 114.7 degrees F, with clear water
4. 6 quarts of water at 108.3 degrees F, with clear water
5. 8 quarts of water at 117.9 degrees F, with clear water
Do you think the cfunny will care if the average temperature was 112.7131964809 degrees F or will about about 112.7 degrees F or 113 degrees F be an adequate average?
Will he think of it as significant that one of the enemas was almost 118 degrees F? Or will he insist that it was only 117.9 degrees F.
In reality numbers are often rounded in arbitrary ways. You can't even tell unless you study the numbers.
A recent study says that about 3.8% of the US population is LGBT, or about 9 million people.
If one figures that the US population is about 305 million then:
305 million * 0.038 = 11.59 million gays. Which should properly be rounded up to 12 million.
You have to dig around to find they applied their percentage to the presumed adult population above age 18. I looked this up and it works out to like 8.8 million adult gays, which they round up to 9 million.
Do we assume there are no gay children? Or that they don't count? Or maybe that we can "cure" them?
