Don't use the letter I

"What is the square root of 2? 1.4141592653589793238" Seriously, I thought it was that. Too round?

I'm not sure how good an idea posting a thread like this is...

Hypocrisy: pretending to have virtues that you don't. I was telling people what to do by telling them to stop. I also think it is wrong to go on and on explaining things. I mean really it is something you shouldn't do. Why do people need long explanations anyway? They don't, see? Shall I go on?

Are you asking to have the thread closed?

I don't think I should ask anyone! Isn't that right, bobbym?

I agree, asking is a sign of weakness. Who needs his advice anyway?

I find it difficult to be hypocritical on demand. It is much easier for me when I am not thinking about it.
