When you create something, you store power within it.

Destruction is merely unleashing the power someone stored.

So, in many ways, the act of creating implies a greater capacity for power than destruction.

We really need to look into revoking your license to handle uranium.

I know very little about the NFL, but I know they're only trying to copy Detroit.

And it sounds like something from science fiction.  If it's an alien from another part of the universe who has that problem while visiting Earth, it's intergalactic galactorrhea.

Oh, wouldn't that be grand!

The Galactorrites, known for extreme cases of galactorrhea. A messy species to work with.

I saw what I presume was a spelling mistake, but it has me wondering...

Can you have less than 0 percent of something?

If you are holding a wheel of cheese, and you want to give someone less than 0 percent of it, what does that really mean? Are you wanting that person to contribute to the wheel of cheese, or are we slipping into some weird theoretical mathematics where this model doesn't quite hold up... a case where a negative percentage has a meaning that doesn't quite fit into the idea of a part of something?

Yes it is possible using Swiss cheese. If you cut out the holes in Swiss cheese and give only the holes to
someone you are giving them less than 0%.

Less than 0% of something, eh.
What is this, Obamanomics?

In statistics this is a common thing; you can speak of a figure going up or down by a certain percentage; i.e. a +xx% or -xx% change. The wheel of cheese makes it a difficult, but delicious, analogy. "Giving someone less than 0% of" the cheese does seem to imply that you are mandating them to give *you* cheese.

I recently came across something similar, were two companies had 107% of all market profits. It was explained, that this is possible, because the other companies combined lost 7% of their money on this market.

When the space shuttle was being launched the announcer would say that engines are at 106%, it was explained
that the measuring standard never changed but with design and technology improvements the engines operated more
efficiently. The newer engines operated 6% better than the old standard.
