Is anyone else here reminded of that priceless scene in "This Is Spinal Tap," where the band member is explaining why he taped an "11" onto his stereo volume control?

<British accent>
"See, I turn the volume up to 10, like this, but then if I want just a little bit more, I go up to 11."
</British accent>

I always think of that scene when people yapper on about giving "110%." And they wonder why I start to giggle!
