    I never understand why its not "the 1 percent"

    I mean doesn't the 99 percentile infer everyone can accomplish it?

    As with all statistics, they mean what you need them to mean.

    Haha right? I mean I get it...

    But when we talk money why don't we say the top earners in the country are the 99th percentile? We say they are the top 1%.

    Anyways he's cemented himself as the top WR which I think everyone already knew.

    BayBuck Buckeyes are best

    Well, because percentile is its own word (which denotes the percentage of a total which are below it).

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percentile

    But yes, you can also correctly translate that as “top 1 percent.”

    sparcboxbuck What happened to my ¤cash?

    I would have thrown you out of my class if you asked questions like that. You probably didn’t include y=0 in your bar charts as well.

    Two trains leave at the same time 30 miles apart. One going 60 mph and the other 40 mph when will they cross? Haha

    All seriousness though Flemming is in the top 1% for his abilities across the board which is insane.

    We don’t know which way the trains are traveling to begin with.

    Ha! One's going north and one's going south.

    Oh and the training heading north is the one going 60mph. Southern speed afterall.

    Well in that case, the two will cross on January 13th, 2020 and the train going 40 mph will out physical the 60 mph train in roughly 60 minutes. Does that answer the question?

    Top 1% in the standardized testing. More importantly he is also in the top 1% of running routes, getting open and most importantly catching the ball. We gonna have a fun 4 years.
