The rather gay city next to Palm Springs’ mayor says it’s his priority to get an In-And-Out Burger joint (that’s restaurant not marijuana) in the section on the main highway where they dumped so much money into redevelopment and business 40 years ago which never really came. How he puts it made me wonder…..

“On a scale of 1 to 10, there is about a seven or eight chance the iconic burger restaurant comes to Cathedral City [1].

Why do people talk like this especially in the AOA (Age Of Acronyms)?

What he just said above could be said simpler like, “There is about a 75% chance…” instead of all this nonsense “On a scale of 1 to 10 and not a scale of 1 to 100 or a scale of 1 to 5 as is done in the movie review sites which even use scale of 1 to 4, there is a bout a seven or eight chance…”

I don’t understand why people have such issues with using percentages. They often do this “On a sale of…..” thing. Maybe time to change the scale, I’m going to start using one that’s 1000 instead of 100 or 5.

Even better, let’s also acronymize it like the QGBT community does, he simply could say, “There is a S maybe E chance TIBR comes to CC when looking at this on a scale of OTT”.

Of course this would take time for people to be educated what these acronyms stood for, like with the edercation that was needed to teach humans that humans can have immune deficiencies (as if they didn’t have them before).

Note: I am not going to provide what OTT and CC and TIBR and E and S means, you should know that by now. If you don’t maybe it’s time to do what certain “gay community leaders” did, demand your tax money to be spent on edercation.
