Re: 7 D in the W


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.

Great puzzle, but tough for me.  Only got 9 so far!  Not worth hiding yet.

later:  17, half way.

Re: 7 D in the W

Sorry for peaking but I think 4 H of the A is only partially correct,Bob.

But you did all of them!!! Congrats!

I had a little help from my friends.

Apart from the obvious that I wouldn't like to meet them.  smile

I almost forgot what that phrase means.

Ok,then. I think the others are ok,too. This is interesting. Wonder if MIF has more of these he would like to post.

I hope you get them all, because I've forgotten what one of the answers is.  Oh dear!  shame

Oh OK.  Don't cry.
