Hi this is a beautiful step forward in clarifying it. Luis was being very fuzzy. But his intuition prompted you to make a nice clarification for folks with a math IQ under 125. Now that you have been reminded, I assume you will never let Luis manipulate you again in this way.

Well, that is certainly good news.
With your highly detailed methodology,
can the bean counters 'lay off' the assembly workers and the engineers ... without any loss in production? This allows everyone but the bean counters to take a well deserved vacation, but places an unfair burden on the bean counters to support the whole economy.

Oh... wait... you "quantified it!" --
"just about" anything.
That's less than the original anything.

I could have said more but I'm not paid enough...
I'm not paid 'just about anything' at all !

Warm regards,
