I'm not saying that Wikipedia isn't a credible source, because that would be a ridiculous implication, but check out rule # 8 here www.grammarbook.com/numbers/numbers.asp

Personally, I'm more inclined to not give words ambiguous meaning, so I follow the "and means decimal" rule, because the alternative is "and means whatever I choose". Additionally, the fact that banks treat an "and" as a decimal marker should be a strong supportive point.

"One hundred point one" is not literately correct. The only grammatically correct way to say the number 100.1 is to either say "one hundred and one" or some variation of "one hundred and one-tenth". The "and" is necessary as a decimal marker.

There also seems to be a disparity between American English, where "and" primarily should be understood as a decimal marker, and European English, where the use of "and" is less consequential.

Furthering on that, using "and" between "one hundred" and "one" is allowed in spoken language, but is not the formal way of writing out the number 101.

It appears both are correct terms, even though I was always taught one hundred one. When writing a check, one hundred and one would imply 100 and one cent. eh.

The and implies that the one is a decimal. I'm not sure if that matters though

Nope, that would be 'one hundred point one' (as 100.1). Check the below link in response to the anon.

Fair play for putting up a list, but I have some objections:

Firstly, how are these countries doing now that they've embraced capitalism? From what I can see, they're still riddled with severe economic and social problems. Furthermore, isn't it a bit forward to say the sole reason these governments collapsed was down to socialism? Or not down to most, if not all, being riddled with said social (autocratic leaders, corrupt governments, rebel militia) and economic problems, as well as being victim of larger nations' social policies (such as Burkina Faso)?

Yugoslavia again suffered from the same problems, plus the fact that Yugoslavia was very diverse and they all hated each other. Of course after the fall of an authoritarian leader, there will be a gruesome war between groups. The same is seen today in capitalist nations such as Egypt, Syria, Libya, South Sudan, Myanmar to name but a few. Genocide solely down to socialism? Slippery slope argument there.

USSR was never socialist. Wasn't even "true" communism. I don't really know what that point was supposed to say, but ethnic Russians aphave lived in Ukraine for decades and the Ukrainian government treat a large proportion of its people like shit.

China was never socialist, they're "communist" and are governed by the communist party...

Vietnam, okay fair play, but is it more capitalist or more materialistic? There's a difference. Also, I would wonder TNCs effects in Vietnam.

Finally, if socialism is too rigid for today's society, how is it some of the most successful countries in the world have socialist tendencies/are basically socialist (Norway, Sweden, Finland etc)?

Also I'd like to add that, just because a nation says they're socialist doesn't mean there are actually socialist.

If you hate ponies so much, skip GLORIOUS FAGGOT content. The site isn't made only for you.
User avatar #9 to #8 - Rockaman (08/28/2011) [-]
problem is is that I wasn't expecting anything to do with ponies so I watched it and now the matrix feels ruined. Thats why I say **** PONIES.

2. ?????
3. Discover the internet
User avatar #13 to #12 - Rockaman (08/28/2011) [-]
like most people, I look at the content b4 the comments section. I normally skip MLP crap but this snuck up on me. Also every comments section has stupid ponies on it so that won't exactly work.
User avatar #14 to #13 - spior (08/28/2011) [-]
All you haters say that.
I, on the other hand, hardly ever see any ponies in the comments.
Also since I'm not a gigantic faggot, here's a list of the things to look out for:
Gay Pony
pinkie poo
Flutter Shy
Rarity
Luna
Equestria
Celestia
Twilight

^ see any of these, skip.
