Hi MIF;

Really nice animation there!

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.****If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.**** Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.**

Think about this, if Earth were a bag of 100 M&M's:

97 pieces would be extremely salty and not fit for you to eat,

2 pieces are edible, but they are stuck in the bag where you can't get them,

there is only 1 piece of candy left in the bag that you can eat.

MIF is surely very witty.

Because the speeds are constant and never change

Nope. They are almost constant.

A wonderful page though

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

So that's where the words "pratiwi" and "pertiwi" come from.

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away.

May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
