Good morning, Rusty;

Well, for the engineering types here among the group, I think it goes out to something like:


Twelve (12) significant digits is usually considered adequate, but there are some exceptions.

Precision and accuracy are important to many people who seem to many others to be just a little bit different, or even weird or odd. Hey, we just like numbers, and precision, and accuracy, and mathematics, and standards, and knowing how things work and even why they work.

And I did not know that you have an interest in such things. I do know about your penchant for astronomy.
