I know it well, that terrible stage of revision avoidance where you start counting ducks in Daily Mail articles.

It's because all the immigrants have given them a brain tumour and affected their numerical skills... cough

You think that's bad? Y'know how The Sun constantly has these polls that supposedly reflect "public opinion", and how they'd been having a lot of them in the run up to the General Election? One of their pie charts added up to 98%, while another added up to 101% >_>

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.

Hmmm, time to gain acceptance and popularity amongst my student peers by despising and criticising the Daily Mail, despite having never read it, and also saying that the Liberal Democrats rock my rocks.

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...

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.

You have to be lenient with the Daily Mail though, there's only one single brain cell between all the editors.
