Hi benice;

I am having trouble spotting the third one.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Hi;

I guess it is my old war injury. Got hit in the eyeballs with a mortar shell back in 43. Looks like two eyes staring upward with a big nose between them.

No, that was after it. The aforementioned combat was Melrose street hill in the first Battle of Brooklyn.

But that is getting off topic. The artist sees the 3rd finger, whilst I see heavenly glancing eyeballs and a large proboscis.

Quite clever, young fellow. I am quite sure that many of todays young people can subtract. Heck, some of them can even divide! If I tell you my age then you might be one of them subtractors. You would be able to know my age! As you know that is forbidden.

The big nose is the third middle finger. Just Kidding.

I'm sorry to hear that. Mortars are dangerous. I have some experience with 81mm mortars.

My friend anonimnystefy will get by without knowing my age. Incidentally, I have already told him, he refused to believe it.

Hi benice;

I got off the topic here, thanks for submitting the image so we could look at it.

Hi anonimnystefy;

I believe it is a good policy to always listen to bobbym. Most of the time him and I agree on the right way to do things.

hi all,

I believe it is a good policy to always listen to bobbym.

But I remember, just a week or so ago, you told us never to take any notice of what he says!

Benice:  Nice pic but surely it's a woman not a man.  That looks like a bra to me and a very narrow waist!
