    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> The size of your slice can be the inverse of 104348 / 33215 of the whole thing</span hide>

    Re: A mystery

    I am not sure if this is an answer or a question. Either way it is "No you can't" <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: A mystery

    Just looking at it sends me pie-eyed. I can't see a consistent patern - it just seems to go on forever. All seems quite irrational to me.

    Very clever, you can now see why I am no good at word puzzles. Sir, your question is an answer

    Please note that my reply was both a play on the word <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">pi / pie</span hide> and a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">mnemonic for pi</span hide>.

    Re: A mystery

    Can I have a ration? ...<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">mnemonically</span hide> more accurate -

    How I want a drink, alcoholic of course, after the heavy chapters involving quantum mechanics. One is, yes, adequate even enough to induce some fun and pleasure for an instant, miserably brief. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
