I will ask him when I see him but he is unpredictable. He does not take a compliment well.

He said he thinks you will be a fine adult and a great mathematician. He puts you in his top 5 of the best he has seen.

Re: no. of divisers

I'm not sure if that is a good measure, considering how much sunlight he sees.

Top 5 what?

And, either way, he is probably not correct.

5 or so people that are amazing to him.

And, either way, he is probably not correct.

So when a person is headed for greatness and misses the mark by falling short, that person will still shine.

Re: no. of divisers

Amazing can also be in a negative way. I sure hope you don't mean that!

Re: no. of divisers

Hmmm, the negative attributes of people do not amaze me, except at how stupid such people are to act that way.

I meant people of great ability.

It was a statement of course.

I am off to go shopping see you.

Re: no. of divisers

How is a person meant for greatness supposed to shine if he doesn't do something great?

See you later. Please do not forget anything like you did last time.

What? I am constant as the northern star. Forget? Impossible!

Dorothy: Your Majesty, if you were king, you wouldn't be afraid of anything?

Cowardly Lion: Not nobody! Not nohow!

Tin Woodsman: Not even a rhinoceros?

Cowardly Lion: Imposerous!

Cowardly Lion: Why, I'd thrash him from top to bottomus!

Dorothy: Supposing you met an elephant?

Cowardly Lion: I'd wrap him up in cellephant!

Scarecrow: What if it were a brontosaurus?

Cowardly Lion: I'd show him who was king of the forest!
