One of my pet peeves is people who say "I'm 110% in" (or any X > 100%).

I dislike it because the person thinks they're making a strong statement, but it's actually weaker.

While 100% means "I'll do the theoretical maximum", with 110% you no longer have an upper bound.

Why stop at 110%? Why not be 120% in? Or 200% in? Maybe someone else will be 1000% in!

When you say you're "110% in" you're implying you could be even more committed if you wanted.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
