This is from the plot summary of the Najica Blitz Tactics Manga:

Plot Summary: With 17% of the earth’s surface submerged in water, Najica lives a double life, as both a skilled perfumer and an operative for the secret intellegence organization CRI.

Erm. We’re currently at about 75% of the Earth’s surface underwater. If that went down to 17%, well… I don’t think it could. All that water would have to be someplace. Anyway, if it did, nobody would be funding super spy organizations, building robots, or even buying perfume. The way this reads, they make it sound like 17% is a lot.

17%? What the heck were they trying to say, anyway?

  1. I think what they mean is that 17% of what used to be land becomes submerged.

    If you’re into this kind of scenarios, check http://ykk.misago.org/ . It’s the most beautiful gem of post-apocalipsys.

    Maybe it was saying that 17% was the only remaining land on the surface. Like, they were saying that 83% of the earth is now completely covered in water. Just a thought.
