98% Huh! I had heard 97.874383% But I didn't really pay much attention since
it's extremely difficult to quantify complex processes with simple
percentages and associating non-scientific, unquantifiable ideas with the
idea of scientific precision is done primarily to impress others. I just use
words like "most," "some," "all," and "a little."
