Of course not! Think anyone wants to see my face?

Yes. I found a person over there who matches your description.

You should not use facebook because it uses proprietary javascript

You did? Must be another clone.

I am not on facebook for an entirely different reason.

The only reason I know that hampers you is privacy.

There are other reasons why I am not there. Take a look at the logo on the bottom.

It is more than privacy. Have you forgotten our conversation in the PM's?

I do not remember anything about facebook that was there

Hmmm, the men, they are brothers! They are the same!

I have to go cook for my brother, he is ill. See you in a bit.

Yes, your school is wise not to appoint me to do anything. I am a difficult employee. I have difficulty relating to younger people. Some are intimidated and call me sir, this is annoying. Others call me gramps, which makes me violent. Others try to mug me which also makes me violent.

You should send Angela. We call all the female teachers 'aunty'

There can not be a female counterpart. m stands for male.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

by counterpart I mean something like 'Edition' or 'Version' or 'Flavor'. It is the same person under a different gender

Angela was your female version. Why are you forgetting?

What is the difference between counterpart and a version?

counterpart: someone or something that has the same job or purpose as another.

version: A particular form or variation of an earlier or original type.

Agnishom can have counterparts but not versions.

Because that would not make him Agnishom? Why can I have counterparts?

Will you send your Angela here?
