I have been waiting for this one. Mars has the best shots, sometimes it looks like Vegas so I feel I know the place.

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.

### Re: Mars

Some people say that Mars is the second planet where life exists.

And our teacher was showing about the solar system in multimedia. She said,"Neptune is so blue. I think it the second planet with water."
Is that true?

There's a Futurama episode called "Viva Mars Vegas".

Hi;

In Bengali, "Tuesday" is called "Mangal Baar"("Baar" means day in Bengali). And "Mangal" means Mars.
And similarly "Tues" is called Mars?
