I dunno if you guys have seen these ads for this new movie "The Number 23", but in it they refer to all these dates and "facts" that happen to add up to 23, and then they say, "and 2 divided by 3 is .666"

No it's not! It's .6 repeating, which, when rounded to the three digits they use, is .667. Of course this probably ruins their whole movie premise, but fuck them for not doing the math right!

yes, that is the sign for a repeating number, and, yes, if they'd done .666 with the dash overtop the last six it would have been mathematically accurate and held true to their stupid little concept of ZOMGSATIN!
