Some of the manufacturing plants that produce most of the world's RAM were destroyed recently. Don't have a link to the article, but it was legit.


That actually turned out to be much less awful than they thought and didn't actually affect much. And it was 15%, not most. >_>


I didn't say that most of the plants were destroyed. I said that some of them were.

Either way, your sentence was so misleading it was worthy of being in a sensationalist article.

How is it misleading? It's absolutely true. 'Some' is not synonymous with 'most.'

Well, when you say that "some of most of something" is gone, the first thing you'd think is not "up to 10% of something."
