First I googled for "there are always other variables" (including quotation marks, which constrains searches to those that contain that exact phrase), but when that returned umpteen pages of stuff that wasn't hitting the spot I tried adding the word "maths" after my initial entry:

"there are always other variables" maths

And hey presto!, there was my answer, near the bottom of the first search page.

I searched for its author but drew a blank. It's unlikely that the poster is the author, though, as it appears on other forums...albeit with some differences.

, because I'm pretty sure that is the exact one I remembered. As for my signature, I picked that, and another one I really liked (from the first page out of bob bundy's suggestions). Thank you all, more satisfied about my signature now.

]]>Life isnt a simple Math: there are always other variables.

In maths, as in life, there exist many unforeseen and unaccounted-for variables that can change an expected outcome.

I did a 'google' on that and got loads of hits, mostly with a serious, statistical theme.

Best offer: "There are always other variables. Especially the object between the chair and the keyboard."

If that's not the one, you'll have to say something about the context.

Alternatively, you might find something here:

And some good ones here:

I particularly liked "If two wrongs don't make a right, try three."

Books that I am reading usually supply me with the quotes I use. You can also google for millions more. I change mine every once in a while, get tired of them.
