Desc:Had this program been around when I was in school, I wouldn't have failed math 4 years in a row.

This is the first thing to spark my interest in education sense high school made me loose it.

Because I am a dope I misunderstood the last question to be: in general, where should you position yourself so that you are statistically likely to be the recipient of the most kisses? The answer I came up with was 2 times the average interpersonal distance away from the wall. The advantage with that is, if there's anyone closer to the wall than you, odds are greater that you'll be the closest thing to them.

If you were enormously fat, like the size of a building, you could have hundreds of girls essentially touching you; provided they were spaced just far enough apart from each other that they weren't touching one another, they would all be closer to you. But that's sort of breaking the intent of the question, I guess.

Anyway, this is neat, but I found Dara's eagerness to show off how much he knows about math a bit awkward. Also I detest the use of the word "maths" with the "s" on the end.

I don't think I saw any math[s] on this show except some knowledge of very basic geometry.

Pretty easy but clever problems - but damn baleen fix your tags. Were you drunk?

That made me laugh! I didn't know that symbol was even possible in tags!

I didn't see anything weird but for some reason I am capable of doing magical things on this site without intending to.

It's all a matter of code pages. A code page determines the available characters in a document, and the pattern of 1's and 0's that represents each character. The problem is when you copy text from a document in one code page, and paste it into a document in another code page ... the 1's and 0's may end up meaning something different under the new code page. Or sometimes the 1's and 0's may not mean anything at all under the new code page.

In dealing with text in English or other Western European languages, the biggest culprit is that Windows uses a slightly different code page from what Linux does. (Code page ologists know I'm speaking very very loosely here, but I'm trying not to say "Windows-1252" and "ISO-8859-1" because that doesn't make things any clearer.) For most characters the 1's and 0's are the same between the two code pages, so there's not a problem most of the time. But when you get into smart quotes and other "beautified" Windows characters, you start bumping into code page inconsistencies, where Linux doesn't have a proper equivalent.

So are you telling me I'm the only person that uses a OS 10 mac on this website?
