You're just picking the easy examples. What about literally anything to do with scientific observation, or just plain maths?

— Easy/commonly cited

— Use dedicated types or convert to a pair of integers

— So you mean not to use IEEE floating point arithmetic. Got it.

— Not when the decimals matter

— Like in a lot of real life situations

— Few

— Tell me where a 0.36 of a nanosecond matter?
Because that's how far IEEE representation failed to represent that .4

— It was minutes

— Why would it be anything but ms
