    As for the menu, well, clearly they're serving NaN...

    Secnod justified by the frist post still being held for murderation.

    Anyway, not from NZ but is it possible that 100% is the safe level of the dam but it won't start overflowing until 105%?

    Nice set of Errod's today.

    If Isaac is in Australia, why would he be given a US phone number? VPN? And I do declare, that's a mighty curious desktop browser.

    The dam could be one of those things where originally x amount of water is 100% and they increased the capacity but kept it as x=100% so the old documentation wouldn't be confusing. Like with the Space Shuttle engines.

    Dam levels can be quite interesting. Where I live a dam registered a negative capacity some years ago. Zero was defined as the level which water cannot be taken out without pumps. In this dam's case, empty is -20%.

    Cheese NaN perhaps?

    Typically, the most common form of > 100% on a dam is when the incoming water is arriving faster than it can be spilled at the exit. This video will explain, and provide the nuances.

    On the question of regular contributors:

    Most people only seem normal until you get to know them. I am just easy to get to know.

    There’s a dam in Queensland, Australia that serves two purposes: water storage, and flood mitigation. 100% of capacity is defined as the point where it’s holding its intended amount of water for storage. It’s actually completely full at 200%: meaning half of its capacity is intended for flood mitigation. Once it goes over 100%, the excess is released in a controlled manner until the dam is back down to the defined 100% point.

    If there’s heavy rain forecast, the dam controller might even drop the dam below 100% to give more room for flood water to be retained.

    Isaac was viewing the Walmart US page. I don’t think Facebook allows pages to show different about details to consumers from different locations, and Walmart has no Australia branches anyway.
