I think you need to clarify the difference between your bunch of numbers and her bunch of numbers. Probibly a couple orders of magnitude difference.

Ahh...yeah, I apologize for the ambiguity. How about "plethora" ?

3. Hey, some people have had traumatic childhood experiences with "new" math!

...go calculate everything in base 8. Don't worry about what the "right" answer to the equation is, as long as you know why it works...

AAAARGH!

In the Algebra preface of his book "Precalculus Mathematics in a Nutshell," Professor George F. Simmons wrote that the New Math produced students who had "heard of the commutative law, but did not know the multiplication table."

Hawkeye, to answer your question, my directions are for making your own BlackCat. There are currently three fully constructed "official" BlackCats in existence, so if you want to buy one, I guess you can talk to one of the other two guys who have them. Or come to my house and try to talk me out of mine or the one I'm currently sewing Good luck!

Y'know, now that I think about it....yep! Exactly that look! We'll just tell everybody you were helping me out by showing me what to look for...keeping me out of trouble with the wife...

8. I can induce the blank stare too, just ask me about how the Excel Macro works. I would be happy to explain it. lol
