I spotted this on a reply to a Facebook photo comment. The person wrote that something was “a perfectly acceptable way of getting someone’s attention when there are well over 30 decimals of sound raging around us!” I Googled ‘decimals of sound’ to find these further examples:
How can you find out the legal sound decimal for a 72 chevelle in Seattle Wa?
What is loud for decimals in sound? ChaCha Answer: 86 decibles is a loud but not dangerous level of sound…
We have WAR READY & GREEN windows that block up to .88 decimals of sound with an unmatched warranty.
Probably not an eggcorn, but an interesting misspelling I had never encountered.
