I have never encountered any person or creature that was crazier than I.

Nothing truer could ever be said than that

I am trying to convince the 14 year old who is 15 of that.

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

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

Sadly that is now true. When you get old you can no longer be the best. My brother and EVW are crazier than I.

I told that to your brother and he agrees with me. No one anywhere is crazier than you. But we all keep trying

That is very kind, it warms my heart to hear such sentiment. Have you heard of 10 / 1. Been following it any?
