Let's visualize this Foxconn square footage discrepancy

Foxconn's Terry Gou visits Milwaukee after Trump tells him to 'bring more jobs to Wisconsin'.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 12/7/2019)
Foxconn is building a million-square-foot structure that is to house a flat-screen factory, and recently filed plans for a 261,000-square-foot “smart manufacturing center,” and a computing data center that would include a 98-foot-high glass dome. A 120,000-square-foot multipurpose building was completed about a year ago.

Keep in mind that Gou is no longer chairman of Foxconn, "but still has a hand in company affairs" -- whatever that means -- according to J-S reporting.

"Rinky Dink", an instrumental by Dave 'Baby' Cortez, one of two of his singles to reach the top 10, debuted at #97 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending July 14, 1962.  It spent 14 weeks on the chart, peaking at #10.

According to Merriam-Webster, the first known use of 'rinky-dink' occurred in 1913. 

Other coinages from the same year include:
  1. blooey
  2. comfort station
  3. efficiency expert
  4. lunatic fringe
  5. roadblock
  6. sob story
  7. stooge
  8. wettability
