27% More Colourful

I ventured through two home improvement centers, yesterday, and took some pictures. I had not noticed, until I looked at the photos, that Home Depot is 27% more colourful than Lowes. Can anyone tell why this is?

I think the same thing. The "27% more colourful" was only a guess, though, because 68% of statisticians also guess about their percentages.

I think home depot is more recognized between the 2. I would suspect they are probably more adept and have more resources to concintraite on aesthetics and design.

I make purchases in Lowes almost every day. Home Depot is a last resort to get what we need, but I prefer HD because the quality of their materials leaves Lowes out in the cold. For instance, last month I bought four bags of ready-mixed mortar to plaster a foundation. It was hard and lumpy. Yesterday, I went back to Lowes to get some more and they were down to four bags, all of which were torn and hard. It seems they won't stock any more until their crap is sold. So down to Home Depot I went, and what a difference! The only reason we shop at Lowes is because my boss has an account with them. I think I'll talk him into getting an account with HD. Anyway, that's why I was in both places, yesterday, and decided to get some pics with a little point and shoot. I was going to do the men's room, too, but it might have raised some eyebrows.

Now, prof, were you having a REALLY quiet day?? Well, since I'm number phobic, I wouldn't have even known how to do the percentage thing, I think you have very finely tuned observational powers and I'm suitably impressed.... I'm even more impressed with your sense of humour. You're always good for a giggle or two.

Like Pink Floyd said on their "Wall" album: "I've got amazing powers of observation."

As for the numbers thing, anyone can do it. You just think of a number, add the percent thingy, and spout it out as though you know what you're talking about. People are impressed when you tell them facts such as "Fourteen percent of the rutabaga crop, in Honduras, goes for animal fodder." And if you integrate big names like "The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta" into your speech, it throws more weight behind your pontificating.

Utilizing promiscuous superfluous terminology conjointly is another exemplary technique to illude the unsophisticated and gratuitously classification of commonality.

Professor Chuckabutty suffers the human equivalent of the Windows "Fatal Error" screen. No amount of "three-finger saluting" (Ctrl-Alt-Del) will help him, now. Unplug is the only solution.

I can simplify it for you...... Big words will fool the "stupid" to agree or remain silent.
