You're right. Dunno what I was dividing earlier. Proves I should stay away from math I guess. Still that's almost &#8531;.

I crunched the numbers and came up with 32.5% as the number of states allowing gay marriage. I went with the 50 (fifty) figure as the total number of states with an margin of error of zero. I hope that clears that up.

Can't remember if I posted this here or on FB. I am not an official member of this organization, but they most closely align to my positions within the Republican Party. I love knowing that there are other non-crazies in the Party :)

math is not your strong suit. Didn't edogg already jump on you once for misreporting that %?

15 out of 50 is 30%

That's twice now she's made that mistake. I think Mimi just doesn't know how many states there are.

Ok guys…..I suck at math. Got it! Sheesh…. ;-)

Also, it was late, not sure what numbers I was calculating, I'd had a 15 hour day. Dudes…

Interestingly enough this is a really easy equation. I mean really simple: smaller number/larger number = percentage. Voila. I almost always get it right. IDK why I get it wrong HERE.

It's Friday morning. Moon, Pixx (Hi Pixx!) and Mimi all have the same avatar. Even with coffee I am confused.

Well, in your defense, if you only count the lower 48, then disregard Florida, and Missouri, then count Illinois twice, then yeah, that's pretty close to half.

Okay, this got a legitimate LOL.

Which I needed, after finding out this morning that a co-worker's husband passed away suddenly last night. The co-worker isn't someone I'm close to, but I see her every day. Bad news, please stop....
