Got me thinking...

Hi;

This was recently posted

Bobbym, Your site has an opportunity to become famous for the whole world. Order article in the magazine or the newspaper that your site was the first where new sensations are published!

as everybody on the planet already knows this site belongs to MIF. It did get me thinking though about that fame he mentions. Everyone knows I am a modest sort of chap but mixing with the Hollywood crowd seemed long overdue.

What the heck, called my PR man, spent the last of my savings and did this,

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Hi Bob;

I never thought of that. It is too late now, I am out of funds. I will have to use the old reappearing dollar trick.

Took them thousands of years to pick out of Italy. I would guess they would pick predominantly Catholic countries. America is predominantly Protestant.

Re: Got me thinking...

It is a social network, like Facebook, except things go quite differently there. All the celebrities have a Twitter account, but, of course, everyone can have one.

But, I am guessing you already knew all this.
