99. I said it and in the words of JK, I apologize to no one!
I freely admit I posted my fears about Karl's Math, but never in such a way or with intention to 'depress our optimism.' Can't say whether I ever posted it would be a certainty versus that they would be trying to steal. And frankly, it looks like they did try using the same tactics as before.

They just miscalculated the margin.
