Re: EnglishYea, I never understood why you would want to "take" a dump. "When subtracted from 180, the sum of the squareroot of the two equal angles of an isocoles triangle squared will give the squareroot of the remaining angle squared." #4 20060724 02:11:53

Re: EnglishThere's a lot in there for only 3 minutes and 40 seconds. It's pretty cool how they've summed up a lot of the stuff in the English language that is pretty odd. Nice find. Last edited by Devanté (20060828 18:49:53)
