It is usually good to calculate the number of cubic yards based on 25 cubic
feet per yard, this avoids running short due to spillage and/or for extra
deep spots that need more material. Running short can be quite a problem
when trying to get it finished before it starts to set, so some overage is
always better, unless you are buying from a truck that mixes it as you take
it and you pay according to a meter on the truck.
Remember, Ed. We now live in the liberal era. Whether you are stupid or

the urge to euthenise the poor stupid bastard on the spot.

If the people at McDonalds can rationally discuss relativity,
then it's time to look to your hedge fund...
