One thing I don't understand is why being a committed Christian is a source of comfort. I don't imagine God has changed his views much in the last couple of thousand years, so pretty much everyone in this country is going to hell.

Agreed, pretty amusing. All I can speculate is that she must have remembered that 9 9s are 81 and "spoonerised" that.

There are severe penalties for selling underweight bread. Your scales are not consistent.

With these averages, his score would convert to 1048.15 in the old 15 format (still over 131 per game) and 636.9 in the 9-round format (about 79.6 per game).
