    My father once told me that you can never be certain about anything and any statement should be qualified.

    I suggest an amendment to 'I have 100% more ink than I have penguins as far as I know'.
    I think that maybe your father's statement itself should be subject to qualification.
    As Tom Stoppard said "From principles is derived probability, but truth or certainty is obtained only from facts."

    I could also say that I have 100% more ink than I have penguins. This is a fact I know because I know I have ink and I know I don't have any penguins.
    At the risk of being pedantic and being called a maths genius, 100% of nothing is still nothing.
    To have humorous asides dissected is so dispiriting.

    In my small existence, the amount of space (in all manifestations of that term) that is allotted for ink is completely full. It is at capacity, and I consider it 100% completed with no room to expand. I have, precisely , ZERO penguins. As I desire, seek and expect to have not even one more penguin than I currently have, I strongly believe that the ratio between inks and penguins will not change. 100% ink, 0% penguins. I'm sticking with this assessment and statement.

    (P.S. I'm just having fun here, I'm not upset or anything!)
