Good thread!

I always thought that cooks/chefs eat everything but I was wrong.

Fractal is the term used for that percentage of interest, etc., that is dropped and not paid out to the recipient. Banks make a lot of money on fractals.

I hear that! Every month, I put a bunch of money in the bank, only to watch as it's pulled right back out by all my creditors. At the end of the month, I'm right back where I started!

I too was referring to the partial dimensional numbers such as related to Mandelbrot. I had never heard of any financial meaning of the word.
