"Multiply in your head" (ordered the compassionate Dr. Adams)
"365,365,365,365,365,365 by 365,365,365,365,365,365. He [ten-year-old
Truman Henry Safford] flew around the room like a top, pulled his
pantaloons over the tops of his boots, bit his hands, rolled his eyes
in their sockets, sometimes smiling and talking, and then seeming to be
in an agony, until, in not more than one minute, said he,
133,491,850,208,566,925,016,658,299,941,583,255!" An electronic
computer might do the job a little faster but it wouldn't be as much
fun to watch.
-- James R. Newman (The World of Mathematics)

Paranoid schizophrenics outnumber
their enemies at least two to one.

Thought for Thursday, Feb 8, 2007

The first thing to realize is that English,
especially American English, is a mongrel tongue
that often as not defies all logic. It's also
changing and evolving, which infuriates
sticks-in-the-mud like me, who would prefer
rigid rules that never vary.

owner of Smithcraft Press

Golden Oldie

"The point I have been patiently trying to make," Godwin
said impatiently, "is that you expect far too much of a
first sentence. Think of it as analogous to a good country
breakfast: what we want is something simple, but nourishing
to the imagination. Hold the philosophy, hold the adjectives,
just give us a plain subject and perhaps a wholesome,
nonfattening adverb or two."

-Godwin to Danny Deck

And speaking of writing, Larry Joseph Galvin will have a book signing at
the Bryan Hastings (Texas and Villa Maria) on Saturday February 3, 2007
from 10am-2pm. The title of the book is _The Number Sheet Puzzle:
The Mason Trio Math Mysteries_. For those of you not in the
Brazos Valley you can try www.publishamerica.com/shopping/ and
search for Galvin.

Why am I promoting this book? I would like for him to sell many
books and support his uncle in the manner to which I would
like to become accustomed.

If any on the list are offended by the blatant commercialism I will
cheerfully refund your subscription fee for this one day only.
Oh what the Hay- for the entire month-
