    I think you have rocket science confused with brain surgery? Both very complex subjects of course and may be worthy of further discussions such as 'Are there more rocket scientists than brains surgeons?' and 'Should rocket science be classed as a business and if so, whose business is it to classify it as a business and how should they quantify that business?' :) Also 'Should brain surgery be a secondary business to rocket science' plus of course, which is the best business?' Also, 'Are the numbers of rocket scientists and and brain surgeons dropping and if so why?' :D

    You get my meaning or should we just go back to our abacus' (is the plural of abacus 'Abaci' and if not why not?

    Hmm! I could get used to talking nonsense too! :w00t:

    Math Mojo with the Abacus

    abaci, pronounced 'aB-buh-see', is the preferred, but 'abacuses' is accepted by Webster's. ;)

    I think you`ll find that abacoddles (the correct term in Lithuanian) are a sub species of Piffle, which is closely linked, linguistically speaking, to Tosh.

    ps Loose members need rounding up for their own safety, surely?

    Now you see, I would have thought it was pronounced 'aba-ky ?


    Define 'nonsensical'? How did you come to your conclusion? Please extrapolate.
    (ex·trap·o·late -
    1. Extend the application of (a method or conclusion, esp. one based on statistics) to an unknown situation by assuming that existing trends will continue or similar methods will be applicable. ) :)


    Hmmm. I like your way of thinking. In fact, I think you ought to take this degree in Piffology that I am writing then you can join the League of Piffologists.:D

    But is that really so? How did you arrive at that conclusion and what proof have you got?

    Ah but is papalbullility commercializable? Can we create a business out of it? Have you configured the figures on the abacuses? If so, what system of deducement did you use and CAN YOU PROVE IT?

    papal-bull is infallible - also IMO & IME, inflexible and insidious. i think the Vatican owns the patent. :confused:
    ergo, no profit potential...

    ordinary everyday garden-variety bull is unpatentable, but also unprofitable IME so far - altho others seem to make
    considerable mattress-stuffing greenery out of various bull-products & bull-theories, i have not done likewise -
    maybe i just haven't found the right bull?... but milking a bull for profit can, i understand, be rather hazardous.

    :lol: Ohhhh I don't know? There's some who seem to manage that with ease! :001_tongue: Not sure what formula they use for it though?

    <puts on wellies just in case> :blink: We do have a Masters Degree in BullPoop you might be interested in? I am quite happy to lob it over to you in bucket sized portions and give you a week to stare at it, poke it about a bit and then lob it back to me for marking. Not worked out the formula for marking it though so maybe I should consult the rocks and pebbles to find out how?

    Unlikely to work, due to the forum limit on post size, not hard to skip over the lists... of course if ppl didn't post nonsense, the facts would not be required in rebuttal.
