    The other 8 could be from the other goose that "lends a hand" as the article describes.

    a large number of these geese probably won't make it to adulthood.
    Not with how hungry I'm feeling, no.

    As much as I'd like to agree unfortunately you get this in a lot of places, 'cos if something is say 24.27% they'll round it down to 24% to make it more readable, and sometimes a lot of these segments mean it won't be exactly 100% unless you're rather lucky.
    Yeah, +/- 1% is somewhat acceptable, if you have an odd set of rounded percentages, but I won't forgive a 2% margin of error >_>

    Then again, I suppose it could always be worse...

    He said round *down* to the nearest ten, not up, so 40 would be correct. This would still be wrong though because if you have like 48, why on earth would you round down to 40 and not up to 50...
    Exactly, so surely, if the Mail had any common sense, they'd do that?! But we all know that Daily Mail and Common Sense do not belong in the same sentence.
