Thanks for playing the game Essie Mae.  You are my hero.

All those other number derelicts will have to wonder what the hell game we were playing.........

Here's another..........Have a non believer ( math non enthusiast) use his/her calculator to do this little game....Have them choose any three numbers that comes to mind  now repeat the number  ...such as  123 123...........Have them divide the number by 13, now have them divide that quotient number by 11, finally divide by 7 and the original number will be the result.   Try it ....247247/13 = 19019  divide by 11 to get 1729 and then divide by 7 to get the original number 247.    Fun with numbers......You could short circuit all that division by dividing the number by the product of 13, 11, 7 which is 10001......247247/1001 = 247  .....elementary.

I suspect that our glorious guru and math whiz,  The Asmo,  can think of some more fun stuff with numbers....or may choose not to.

Has this become painfully boring yet?   Hey,  we gotta keep this forum active even if we have to resort to mental games

931 931

931931/1001 = 931

Off out but did do the long way too!

Is Etomology a science?  Here is a big ass bee that hides out in remote places....https://www.npr.org/2019/02/21/696626918/worlds-largest-bee-is-spotted-for-first-time-in-decades

I think that many etymologists consider their work to be at least based on scientific principles. On the other hand entomology certainly is a science. Etomology though . . .  ;)

I read about that Indonesian bee. Great to hear that it's still with us--it sounds like an amazing animal.

Scary how much we've changed this little planet. Hope something survives.

Here is the tale of a survival experiment that eventually included Steve Bannon.

I remember the fanfare, but never heard the whole story. Good one, Icarus.

This place has been quiet for a while.  I will give it a little boost. 

Here is a different kind of science that is both evil and good.

We can imagine The Asmo being involved in this business.  :-X
