bǎifēn zhī liùshí’èr 百分之六十二

Magical measurement of the national rejuvenation.

On August 3, 2012, Yang Yiyong, Chair of the National Development and Reform Commission Academy of Macroeconomic Research, announced that "the Chinese national rejuvenation was 62% complete as of 2010" according to his "quantitative measures." Rejuvenation slowed from 3.34% per year between 2005 and 2010 to 1.3% from 2011 to 2012, reaching 65.3% by 2012, according to Yang.

Netizens proceeded to crack jokes and wondered if Yang had been compensated coming up with this fantastic number. Yang told the Fujian news site Dongnanwang that he hadn't spent any government funds on the research, but also that in 2005 he had reported a 46% completion rate for the national rejuvenation to his superiors, which they deemed "too low."

Yang's quantification of national rejuvenation has inspired netizens to draw comparisons to installing software and charging batteries:
