This gives me a long-awaited opportunity to ask a mathematician: we use “quartile” and “decile.” Would “centile” ever be preferred over “percentile?” Anyway, thanks for all your work! Reply ↓

Huh. That’s a good point. Never heard “centile” but it’s a sensible coinage. And while we’re at it, I guess everyone can claim that they are in the top unile. Reply ↓

Surely by taking half a measure theory class, they would know that, a measure theory class has a finite measure? Or am I mistaken? Reply ↓

LMAO…!!!
