Used to make it seem like there's an extremely small chance that what you say is wrong, when in reality it may be as large or larger.
I'm 99% sure / (I have no fucking idea)
Our hand sanitizer kills 99% of germs / (It kills a few germs)
Example of those super rich in 1% no one wants protest:
Michael Jordan, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Oprah, 50 cent, Barry Manilow, Katie Couric, Kobe Bryant, Dr. Phil, Dr. House, Jeff Gordon, Sam Waterston, Barbara Walters, IMUS, Adam Sandler, Seth Macfarlane, Tiger Woods, Ted Danson and hundreds more.
Dr. Phil spent 500k on his son's wedding. Then put an ad out needing a assistant from the 99%. Pay? 8 dollars an hour.
