Calling all artists and designers! Need a break from building new Marathon levels? (Well forget it! Back to work! Heh heh, just kidding.) Take your favorite internet meme, put a Marathon spin on it, and post it here.

That's not possible. Health is stored as an integer (i.e. no decimal places) ranging from 0 to 450. 150 is "100%" health, so 150 x .999 = 149.85 - not an integer. The closest you can get is 149/150 = 99.3 where the .3 is repeating.

I already KNEW when I posted that someone was going to give me a smart response about floats vs integers. It was written for humor. I should have just gone for the 99.99999% as I was going to do, or kept it at 99%, but noooo, I wanted to make it slightly more outrageous. Bad Zott, bad.

Don't be an idiot, irons. 149.85 is Tan, the constant integer.

99% would have been mathematically accurate, by virtue of being less precise. If you only allow two significant figures in your percentage, 149/150 = 99%.

99.99999% would have been even worse, both because it's even further from the closest possible true value, and because it's including more significant figures than is warranted.


Oh and what the hell, here's my entry that I'm too lazy to photoshop into something pretty:
