fractions of a second

I implied the other day that watching Michael Phelps was getting a little old. But winning by 1/100 of a second just a few minutes ago in the 100m butterfly to win his record-tying 7th gold medal? Pretty cool.

I once lost something by hundredths of a second…well, tenths…three-tenths, to be exact. My fastest-finger time was 3.40, which was only second-best to the guy who did it in 3.10. Dammit. I’ll never get over that.
