Oh! Not fair! It comes out here on Thursday! & Why midnight?

I don't normally go to the theater. It's expensive and usually annoying. I have a nice home theater setup. So, my test weather to go to a theater is if it's worth the hassle of going to the midnight showing. Usually the first one at a given theater.

Last one I went to was the last Indiana Jones movie.

I've seen quite a few midnight showings ... The re-worked Star Wars Movies in the late '90's before the new ones came out, all the new ones, Mars Attacks, Just to name a few.

I have my tickets for the midnight ( 12:10 am Friday ) showing at a local digital theater. It should be great!

For what it's worth, both the UNIX 'bc' program, and the basic on the C-64 interpret 0^0 as 1.

I've not 1, but *** 2 *** of my son's teachers claim 1 is a prime number. The first one, his second grade teacher actually argued with me about it claiming I didn't know what I was talking about - AFTER I had supplied here with numerous printouts from Ask Dr Math, Mathworld and even the first page of a math reference I have that includes the first 1000 prime numbers ( clearly showing 2 as the first one ).

What's next, teaching him that pi=3.0? And everyone wonders what's wrong with the math and science education in this country today.

ERRR!!!
