Sum of Security tends to zero as the Number of Idiots tends to infinity @ 10:21 pm

I just had a bag of 94% fat free popcorn. Now the logical part of my brain says, "well if it's 94% fat free, that must mean that there is 6% fat." So I check the nutruition information and there is zero fat. So I don't get it. Where did that other six percent go? And if it really has zero fat why don't they say that instead of 94% fat free? That doesn't make any sense to me.

On another unrelated note I spent far too much time trying to get my media machine back up and running after I swapped out a noisy harddrive. Nooooooooooooooo, of course the new hard drive couldn't just ghost over and work. And of course it couldn't be repaired. Instead I spent a while reformatting and installing Fedora Core 1. I guess it needed to be updated anyway, that was just NOT the way I wanted to spend my evening. Way too much effort for little gain.

I'm guessing it was 0g/serving, meaning it's really like .4g/serving that they rounded down. Either that or it's a huge government fat hiding conspiracy...
