We may be so blessed, but I'm not aware of it as a problem in Central
Florida. Of course, if it's like the air potato vine, I may wake up
tomorrow and find my house engulfed.
I wonder about a kudzu plant and an air potato plant fighting over the
same tree. Which would win, and would the winner strangle the loser?

But I don't agree with your 90% reasoning. 90% of a mile could be
described as "nearly a mile", but I don't think 90% of 36 inches
could be described as "nearly 36 inches". "Nearly", to me, implies
that the actual measurement is close to the stated measurement AND
closer than to the next convenient division either way.
In other words, "nearly a yard", "nearly three feet", and "nearly 36
inches" are not the same measurement to me. They admit of
progressively less deviation from the exact measurement.
