Don't worry, I didn't expect my comment to end the discussion. I fully expect this to go on for days (at least).
If the government tax us 5.03% GST instead of 5% every time you and I buy something, would you be okay with it?
I will be a bit unhappy.
Because they are charging us
more than 5%
, which is an increase of an extra .03% we have to pay.
If Eberle got 11.97%, i doubt BBO can argue about rounding up to 12%.
The bet is all for fun
It is what it is. 12.03 is bigger than 12.
I don't expect jadeddog to be a bad enough sport to not honor something that is so clear cut.
