 100 Girls (2000)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
But, although 100 GIRLS doesn't approach greatness, it doesn't try to, and that's what makes this movie such a pleasantly innocuous comedy.
The plot of 100 GIRLS is negligible, and not worth repeating.
But such inconsistencies don't really distract the viewer from enjoying what is, essentially, an innocent romp with flashes of intelligence (and kink; are college students familiar with ben wa balls and penile enlargers?).

Subsequent numbers are: 8, 75, 96, 68, 36, 39, 28, 35, 76, 59, 88, 15, 16, 79, 48.
Of course one may want random numbers not as integers in a given range, but for example as uniformly distributed real numbers in a certain interval, or perhaps as real numbers of (almost) arbitrary size, but clustered around the origin.
One reason for the seemingly peculiar choice of N is that that particular number is the largest integer than can be represented on a Unix machine or in Java.

 PHP: number_format - Manual
This is because the numbers generated by performing math are double precision (which means pretty darn accurate) and not perfect precision (which would be what you get when you do the math on paper).
Since number_format() returns a string, numbers returned that DO NOT have a comma in them will still be added but numbers that DO have a comma will not be added because PHP considers them a string and ignores them.
// $total cost is: 100 (not 1100 as you would expect) because $ext_mag is ignored because php interprets its value (1,000) as a string so it won't add it to $ext_ffr.

This is a numeral system like binary, octal, decimal, and hexadecimal numeral systems and not an encoding like the base64 encoding we use to email attachements to each other.
You convert a sequence of three bytes into a 24-bit number (that is to say, a number between 0 and 2^24-1).
You have to throw a few extra rules in there for files whose length isn’t a multiple of three bytes, but it’s really no different than your base 100 number system (you say that name is “half joking”, but it’s actually a perfectly correct description).

There is another one of those "Top 100"/"Bottom 100" music countdown programmes that is being run by VH1 (and in association with 'The Sun' tabloid newspaper) in the UK.
The programme is based on viewers voting for the worst 100 singles of all time in the UK charts.
Basically, whoever decided the 175 songs on the "100 Worst Number 1 Songs" shortlist for nomination have definitely something against Shaky, as he has four entries in the shortlist, which is a 'feat' only matched by Cliff Richard with 4 nominations, and B*Witched with 4 also.

 Volume 100, Number 1, July 2002
In 1992, for every 100 US hospitalizations involving a birth, an estimated 18.1 nondelivery hospitalizations occurred for complications: 13.7 for antenatal complications and 4.4 for pregnancy loss.
We used administrative data from a large managed care organization to examine the prevalence of hospitalizations during pregnancy, factors associated with hospitalizations during pregnancy, the distribution of the number of hospital visits during pregnancy, and the reasons, length of stay, and associated costs of inpatient care.
Of the women with a pregnancy loss outcome, 2.9% (29 of 1013) were prior to the pregnancy loss (2.3 antenatal admissions per 100 pregnancy losses, 1043 of 46,179).

A US senate committee has been told that up to 100 "ghost detainees" could have been held at the notorious Abu Ghraib jail in Iraq because the CIA did not register all prisoners, it was reported today.
General George Fay put the figure at "two dozen or so", but both officers said they could not give a precise number because no records were kept on most of the CIA detainees.
Under the Geneva conventions, the temporary failure to disclose the identities of prisoners to the Red Cross is permitted under an exemption for military necessity.

 Volume 100, Number 4, October 2002
We also tested whether the number of patients seen per week (an index of patient load) was correlated with screening for any of the three STDs, because it is plausible that a high patient load might preclude adequate time for optional measures such as screening.
Neither the proportion of 13- to 25-year-old patients in a practice nor the absolute number of patients seen in a week correlated significantly with screening for chlamydia, gonorrhea, or syphilis (all P >.05).
Nevertheless, these results underscore that there are many missed opportunities for STD screening and that the number of physicians who are screening both pregnant and nonpregnant women for STDs is below optimal levels regardless of their practice specialty.
