I left one datum unreported. When I do make these, I'm making half a dozen, maybe a full dozen, at once. It's a small economy of scale, but I anticipate wanting that many on my games shelf eventually, anyway.

I don't suppose there's any hope you'll go back to selling the acrylic ones anytime soon? If you can't or won't, perhaps the volcano board makers could start making them for looney labs?

Thank you!

All numbers are equal.

Choose arbitrary a and b, and let t = a + b.
(a + b)(a - b) = t(a - b)
a^2 - b^2 = ta - tb
a^2 - ta = b^2 - tb
a^2 - ta + (t^2)/4 = b^2 - tb + (t^2)/4
(a - t/2)^2 = (b - t/2)^2
a - t/2 = b - t/2
a = b
