"The any of the some"?  Is that like the crossing of the Delaware?

No. Multivariable calculus.

No, it's a verbal description of a Venn diagram. I'm pretty sure it's sort of math, but definitely not multivariable calculus...

And since I don't get the Washington and the Delaware joke, I am forced to conclude that history is harder than either math or science.

Science is just another belief system, I thought.

Fair enough. It beats WebMD, but an actual physician is always better.

Great question! If only there were some sort of apparatus one could set up on a desk, and it would have a way to type letters of the alphabet onto a big TV screen-thing, and it would all be connected to a massive warehouse of information somewhere, and one could

No, that was for me.  I'd throw it back in his face -- but I've been doing that for years, and it's gotten a bit old.

Good lord. I don't care what any y'all believe. I can't believe y'all care what everybody else believes.

I don't even know why I read that annoying thread.
