Hey, this is 1%o so far. A really good estimation for "end of March" - and btw. they didn't mention the year, right?

It's not 1% it's 0.07%. :)

I assume from the context it's a percent with an extra "divide by ten" - but never seen it before.

Try drinking a bit of water from the opposite side of the glass.

One of thousand. It's also used as unit for your amount of alcohol in your blood. If a cop stops you with 0,5 %o , you loose your driving license.

I tried this two times in my life: The first and the last time. I nearly died. It's a kind of chinese water torture.

Aren't there any alcohol tests for car drivers in UK? Vincent likes them. You have to blow!

A true geek would use the unicode character and probably know the numeric shortcut as well.

This is a real thing and not some whacked out Germansim?! :eek:

Yes. It's not that common, but it's used in population studies I think.

ah yes, and its your superior non-geek credibility that allows you to debate maths symbols with impunity. :rolleyes: :D

Sorry, I must be deluded. Even ignoring my vast knowledge of mathematics :lol: I thought a percentage sign was a pretty normal everyday non-geeky thing.

Are they going to have one of those big thermometers like they have for church roof appeals? Or will it be in the shape of a tricorder, whatever one of those is shaped like :D
