Bits Of One


People talk about “the lowest common denominator of society”, but what about “the highest common denominator of society”?

It must be populated with the same people, but they use bigger numbers … or something.

“The lowest common denominator” find it easier to multiply for some reason.


note: a fraction is like a million dollars: I’m sure I could do a lot with it, but I haven’t gotten it yet.

double note: I think 20 percent of people understand fractions and the other 3/4 understand percentages.

triple note: I hate to say it, but decimals usually have a point.

quadruple note: my head isn’t proportional to the size of my brain … I think it’s a case of excessive packaging.

quintuple note: why do builders use fractions and business people percentages?

  1. I am a decimal, for sure. 🙂 Where a cap, it makes your head look smaller. lol 🙂

  2. No fractions here either… in fact, this whole business of fractions, decimals and percentages is confusing. But now the rabbit thingy– that I get!

  3. Don’t make me get on my soapbox. The lowest common denominator not only multiplies faster than any other denominator on earth, they are also increasing in criminal aptitude where they subtract from others’ possessions in order to add to their own. I call it Social BODMAS. Remember that? Both my boss AND one of my best friends have recently been burgled overnight. While. They. Were. In. Bed. And no, they don’t cohabit. London is seriously losing the plot. Too much of the LCD (gettit?) and not enough of the rest of us.

  4. Is it a powerful bunny, or a bishop with two hats?

    I like decimals. Go decimals.

  5. I think I am in the percentage of your readers that are now fractionally confused.

    Denominator 2 Judgement Day: Come with me if you want to multiply. Hasta la math baby, I’ll count back

  6. I’m guessing a bishop with 2 hats

  7. Thanks for all the comments.

    Doraz: at work I watched an 11 year old doing math homework … and had to have them explain how to add fractions to me. Math is a foreign language which I don’t speak.

    Donald Diddams: I like my numbers like I like my milk: whole. hee hee!

    epicurienne: the only crime I see being committed where I live is bad driving … and people putting their garbage out early on garbage day.

    writerdood: a powerful bunny bishop with 2 hats??

    Tony: Denominator 2 Judgement Day: in the future aftermath.
