Oh boy! I could give a bigger list, that way no one is left out who deserves to be there.

I would bet your list would include every single person you have had a conversation with. Just name the top 3.

1. Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh

2.Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh

3.Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh

4.Bobbym/MIF/Bob/Ganesh

5. Stefy

I would leave one of those persons out. Oh, he has some abilities but mostly he is all smoke and mirrors.

Bobbym, stop offending me. You don't even think I deserve a mention on the list.

Hey, that is pretty good. Funny in a warped sort of way. No, I was not planning on excluding you.

I know. I posted it. But really, I would place you even above MIF (with all due respect to him).

That is not correct. That guy is like a genius.

Pappym and Grandpappyd always told me to hang around with smarter people. That is one of the reasons why I am here.

So, you know who it is?

Well, I think I know who of those mentioned there is probably the person you are referring to...

Btw, how's pottym (or was it plantym)?

The plant you were going to get. It was mentioned in noemi's thread "Under the fig tree...".

Too bad.

I think the person you were talking about excluding is you. I have known you for a long time and I know about your modesty. I also know that you would be wrong in excluding yourself from that list and that Shivamcoder3013 is wrong in putting himself so for down the list.

That is why I did not make the list. I have definite opinions who belongs where, even to my own position in the list.

Of course, posting such opinions will lead to endless debate and probably some hurt feelings.

I do not want you to post your opinions. I know what could happen.

So why the m suffix? It is hard to believe a 92 year old, indulged in mathematics so deeply, can be so hilarious.

The m stands for different things, depending on whom you ask.
