What does this sign mean?

I'm sure you've seen this...

This sign is often seen when you're going down a mountain. If you don't already know what it means, you may be wondering what it represents. Obviously it has something to do with the slope of the road going down the hill, but what does the 8% in this picture actually represent?


Although Monster Island is a real place, the proprietors do not want the location to become too well known, fearing that twould then be overrun by the greatest monster of all: man. So my trip there was planned in secret and I had to remain blindfolded during my flight. But it was all worth it, Monster Island was the best vacation I've ever had. Being able to walk up to a 20 foot high bug was just about the coolest thing in the world. I thought the giant ape and other "Monsters" on the island would be in cages, or inaccessible, but tare quite friendly and accessible.
