No, you have several thousand more than that.  And how do you get .222 of a post, anyway?

I love/hate that many Europeans use a "." when they're supposed to (USA! USA! USA!) use a "," and vice versa.

Actually the correct way of writing that number would be: '22 222'. No unnecessary comma or point.

But 22 and 222 add up to 244, and Tender has 22,229.

Silly Europeans.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Inserting a decimal point typically suggests that the next sequence of numbers is a decimal; 22.222 would be twenty-two and two-hundred and twenty-two thousandths, while 22,222 would be twenty-two thousand, two hundred and twenty-two.

Blue countries are morally superior. Stuff like 20 000 or 20,00% or 22.000 is stupid. Smiley

Love how the countries who use "non-Arabic numerals" are Saudi Arabia, the rest of the GCC, Iraq, Syria, etc. (ie: Arabic-speaking countries).

I know Iran is not an Arabic-speaking country...

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Using decimals as 1000 seperators and commas for decimals is stupid.

"." implies a full stop while "," a continuation, making 2,409.35 more appropriate.

The world is becoming globalized, but cosmopolitanism is being hijacked by the Davos Man. What choice is left besides nationalism? The thought is terrifying, to be honest.

I just hope Trump doesn't turn into some kind of Berlusconi-esque Teflon man.

I just feel that the period ends the number prematurely. It is a full stop.

In German, yes. In English, no.
22,222 and 22.222 have this in common, that they are not formulated in a language. Tongue

The only correct way to write the number in English is clearly "twenty-two thousand two hundred and twenty-two".
