Remind me again why kickers don't get decimal scoring?

I feel like I see some version of this question every year, and I'm sure there's a logical reason for it (right?!). There has to be at this point.

I don't know what they do on Yahoo, but at least on ESPN, a 49-yarder still only counts as 4 points. Has anyone figured out why kickers don't get decimal scoring like everyone else?

Why do so many languages express their first twenty numbers with a decimal system basis?

Let's just take western European languages for simplicity's sake.

In English, French, German and Italian numbers from 0 to 10 have their own words to describe them. Up until 11 or 12, where they either become a variation of one of the first numbers or a combination of two words (generally number + ten)

I know that the decimal system was not universal during antiquity and ancient times. The Arabs, during the Islamic golden age, introduced to the known world a much more efficient and structured way of counting (the "Arab numbers" we still use to this day), replacing the Roman one.

So why is it that in so many languages the words for numbers above 10 or 12 switch to a compound of the first ten numbers (not counting 0, as the word "zero" itself comes from Arabic)?

[MILESTONE] The Decimal Plan - Phase II

##Investment Rounds - December 27th, 1968

&nbsp;

The next struggle is to acquire the funding and resources to achieve government objectives and support small farmers and communities in their transition to a modern agricultural economy. Fortunately, the chaos in Southeast Asia and establishment of less economically stable regimes in mainland Africa and elsewhere makes a strong argument that the Federation of Madagascar is the safest bet for providing high-demand spices and flavoring products.

&nbsp;

&nbsp;

&nbsp;

The principal financial instrument of the Decimal Plan and into the future will be the MFET, which will ensure the security of Federal exports. The MFETβs main budgetary source will be export tariffs and taxes on producers and those who engage in export trades, though international funding is expected to provide a significant initial boost. The MFET will ensure that export volume over time is maintained, acting to balance the interests of the government with the demands of the international market. MFET grants will go towards public projects for increasing export volume, issuing crop insurance, and other public measures for the increase in security of agricultural exports. MFET investments from foreign states will be partially paid back over time through lowering of export tariffs on export goods to those specific states until the reduction in revenues becomes equivalent to 50% of the investment total. Governments with a vested interest in a secure long-term supplier of agricultural products such as vanilla, coffee, bananas, sugar and various spices should consider investing.

&nbsp;

###Novel Resource Exploitation Trust

&nbsp;

A joint trust managed by the Natural Resources and Health Departments, the NRET will provide funding and oversight for the extraction of novel resources from Federal ecological βsecureβ zones, with a primary goal of providing valuable scientific data and benefiting the global pharmaceutical industry. Novel pharmaceutical and agricultural products will either be auctioned to the highest national or corporate bidder, or made available to the global market with 50-year royalties. NRET funds will largely be dedicated to fulfilling state budgetary requirements for the preservation of the unique ecological regions of the federation, as well as provide an additional source of revenue for expansion of the healthcare system. **Governments with a vested

[MILESTONE] The Decimal Plan - Phase III

##Leveraging Our Resources

&nbsp;

In order to achieve the funding requirements of the Decimal Plan, it has become clear that the federation will need to dig deeply in order to acquire the means for long-term food security. There are a few major mineral deposits in Madagascar that can provide significant funds for this purpose.

&nbsp;

###Ambatovy Project

&nbsp;

Just south of the major port city of Toamasina is a large proven deposit of nickel and cobalt ore, just waiting to be exploited. The location and mineral makeup of the Ambatovy deposit provide for a uniquely accessible opportunity for a country with otherwise poor infrastructure to produce high-quality exports with low overhead. In order to make this work, outside expertise and investment will be required. As such, consultation will begin with western bidders regarding a 50/50 joint venture between the new Madagascan state mining company Kraomita Malagasy SA and a suitable corporation. The expectation is that Ambatovy will achieve moderate output over several decades, during which it is expected that training programs will allow a sizable portion of job positions to be filled by locals.

&nbsp;

###Manantenina Project

&nbsp;

In the southeastern Anosy region of the country, a significant bauxite reserve estimated at 84 million tons at 40% aluminum oxide was uncovered shortly before independence. Interest in exploiting the Manantenina deposit has increased as the demand for aluminum in civilian and especially aviation industries has grown. The federation will fund surveying from a viable bidder to outline the true extent and quality of the local bauxite reserve, as well as the best method to bring the product to overseas export markets.

&nbsp;

###Farafangana and Ankaizina Projects

&nbsp;

Two other major bauxite deposits that are better mapped and recorded are ripe for exploitation - Farafangana and Ankaizina. Farafangana is a significant town on the coast of the country with easy access to shipping lanes, and Ankaizina is upstream from Ambanja on the northwestern coast, with the Sambirano River able to carry a significant shipping capacity. Each reserve deposit is of roughly 100 million tons at 37% purity and 61 million tons at 40.5% purity respectively. In order to better connect the federation with the countries on whom national export interests already rely, the Canadian company Noranda Inc. will be given first dibs at the contracts, with an offer of a 50/50 j

###Against Hunger

&nbsp;

With the institutions of the federation in the process of establishing themselves, the budding Ministry of Research and the Agriculture Department have been granted their first true task: determining how to feed the people. All available avenues must be explored, regardless of ideological scruples; there will be time for such matters once there is enough on the table.

&nbsp;

###The Country Explored

&nbsp;

The long march begins within the federation itself. Surveys and measurements must be conducted of all such factors as are directly relevant to agriculture, and even many factors which are not necessarily known to be. A survey of geological formations, soil composition, measurements of rainfall and weather patterns, tracking of the monsoon season over multiple years, study of the interplay between wild habitats and cultivated land, cataloging of freshwater resources, measurement of productivity and yield of crops in different regions, and determination of best land use will all prove essential in the mapping of the countryβs capacity to feed itself. French assistance will be sought in the course of the initial year-long land survey and subsequent monitoring, as they would stand to gain from the potential increase in export products such as vanilla and coffee.

&nbsp;

###Overseas Expertise

&nbsp;

We have as much to learn from others as we do from ourselves. Developments in agriculture, aquaculture and more across the globe could prove essential keys to unlock the homelandβs potential. Special agricultural delegations will be assembled to visit foreign lands, with a special focus on those with similar climates and/or highly developed agricultural efficiency. Said expeditions shall seek to study and record hands-on how production of staple and export crops takes place in mainland France, Algeria, China, the United States, Brazil, Indonesia, India, Canada, Norway, the Soviet Union, Australia, Finland and Israel. Objectives are to acquire a wide-ranging, holistic view of world agricultural systems in order to bring these concepts and - potentially - crop products home to enrich the federationβs capacity for growth in the agricultural sector.

&nbsp;

###Applied Knowledge

&nbsp;

With the knowledge gained from the first two aspects of agricultural development, experimentation will determine which knowledge is useful and viable, and how to go about implementing it. Trials on different methods of meas
