I did not say he is a bad guy, I am saying he does not know me.

Fanclubs are for famous people, I am not famous.

You were wise not to talk about that kaboobly doo.

I asked the two math teachers about whether there is a function with uncountable maximas.

Have you looked at some wild ones?

Wild math teachers? Yes, they were dancing with the loud music today.

Does that make them wild?

No, it just means they will suffer from back spasms when they get older.

I was talking about wild , pathological functions.

It is a slang term here and has dozens of meanings. For some reason when guys call a girl, "baby" it implies she is voluptuous, well endowed, a handful, a lot of woman, DDG etc...

So using it on this integral means it is a handful...

That too has many meanings. Sometimes it means a little as in a handful of money.

Sometimes it means too much.

Handful: : as much as one can manage <the kids are quite a handful>

For this integral it means too much.

On which of the following conversations should I be using the word handful:

a. A conversation with a shopkeeper

b. with Calvin

c. with Amrita

d. a japaneese person who I've never spoken to before
