That's some impressive data collation Phil! I'd definitely have had a serious go if I wasn't tied down with marking and collating grades - sorry.

Current headline on BBC Sport: "Manchester United expected to sign Fred this week".

I hope we can be grown up about this GJ!

But just to put an end to the matter:

https://language-boutique.com/lost-in-translation-full-reader/writing-numbers-points-or-commas.html

1. Symbol for the “decimal separator”
In German: „EUR 999,50“ or „EUR 2,5 Millionen“
In English: “EUR 999.50” or “EUR 2.5 million”

Notice how in UK/US English a decimal point, and not a comma, is placed as separator before the cents (the fractional part of the decimal number).

2. Symbol for the “thousands separator”
In German: „US-$ 400.456,50“
In English: “US-$ 400,456.50”

Confused!  ???

Probably not the place to discuss decimal places anyway!

I get the same situation from my 'continental' students - how do you show something as thirty thousand and one half? Is it 30.000.5?

Question 4 = 30,000 or 30.0?

You 'continentals' and your crazy use of decimal points!

Sorry, just a bit of stress-busting between marking. No time to be 21 to do it properly at the moment I'm afraid...

TV Quiz? I've never seen any of those shows!


1)  What are the top 3 songs that TV has played?

Easy - Atlantic Tunnel, The Lion and the Lamb and Television's Over. Or did you mean most played?


2)  How many countries has TV played in?

I've only ever seen him in England - I suspect Interpol have been alerted...


3)  How many gigs has TV played?

One fewer than his band!


4)  How many songs has TV sung? 

Just his, or are we including Kylie's? (Big fan. BIG fan!)


5)  There are 8 "covers" on the list, I could be nasty and ask you to name them.   oh sod-it..  name them?

Duvet, stretch, ironing board, cushion, pillow (or is that a case?), bicycle, car and caravan - easy!


6)  There are 2 songs listed, but they are neither songs nor "spoken word" (so 1 is not Punk Rock Poem) any idea?

Two "songs" that aren't songs? Have you been drinking Phil?


7)  How may different TV songs are listed?

Trick question - they are all different. We aren't talking Status Quo or Big Country here!


Do I win £5?

But you're not going to see that on a newsstand unless you're looking through X-ray eyes!
