I Know I'm Not Good at Math, but ...

... isn't 100 percent of something all of it? For example, if I ate 100 percent of the chocolate chip/walnut cookies sitting on a plate in my kitchen*, I ate them all right?

Then what's up with this one hundred thousand percent crap that I keep hearing? Or one million percent? Or one quadrillion percent?

I get that people are saying it for effect, but knock it off. It annoys me.

* This is a purely hypothetical situation.
