Go back and read the footnote... :)

But the humor made me wonder too, is one in ten *always* by definition =
equal to *the top* ten percent? It can be ambiguous, right? When 100 =
people take an exam, and none of them score over ninety, the prof can =
justifiably say "there is no one in the top ten percent", can't he? =
What about when 20 of them score perfect one hundreds?

-iban (who should have been paying more attention to the prof's words =
and less attention to her bod (she had the most gorgeous ass that =
wiggled so wonderful when she wrote on the board) in stats class)
