I love statistics and figures.
The old 100% figure – 100% of us who are living will die.
The old 80% – 20% – This goes for just about any volunteer organization. 20% of the people will do 80% of the work.
2/3 vs. 1/3 – Generally the number of people needed to give permission for change is 2/3 or a group (the 50% concensus is usually problematic – the more the merrier!)
50% – The amount of weight needed on each side of a teeter totter to keep things balanced (also goes for life in general)
7% – Good for GST, PST but quite movable depending on the will and whim of politician!
Got any other figures you would like to pass along??
