    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.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

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

    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!

    More: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Math

    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!
