    The percentage of the rate is going up by 13% or so, not the rate percentage.  So 35% to 39.6% is an increase of 4.6 percentage points, but a percentage increase of the rate of 13.1%.  

    Yeah, I often screw up on that kind of distinction in my solar system diaries doing mass and gravity comparisons too.

    In Roviet Union, money spends YOU!
