Reminds me of the old joke:

Q: Who put the last seven bullets in Mussolini?

A: A thousand Italian sharpshooters.

On the comfort scale for humans as temperatures, regardless of units, F or C.
Desirability as a BMI.
Fixed point representation with implied decimal point right of the leftmost digit.
As fractions 1/11 < 9/9.
As negative values -111 < -99.
As scientific notation 1.1E1 << 9.E9
As repdigits d.. in base d+1. And their respective factor counts, and factor sums.
Desirability as a finishing time for a 100 meter sprint, in tenths of a second. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Men%27...rd_progression

 2021-03-11, 14:03 #1100 rogue     "Mark" Apr 2003 Between here and the 142258 Posts BREAKING: Teacher Arrested At Pearson Airport A high school teacher was arrested today at Toronto's Pearson Airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator. At a press conference, Premier Kathleen Wynne said she believes the man is a member of the notorious extremist Al-Gebra movement. She did not identify the man, who has been charged by the OPP with carrying weapons of maths instruction. 'Al-Gebra is a problem for us', the Premier said. 'They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.' They use secret code names like "X" and "Y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns"; but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, "There are three sides to every triangle." When asked to comment on the arrest, Prime Minister Trudeau said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of maths instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes."
