I have a similar collection for which I referred to the container as "The Unpurple Bag." Even though I do not own any purple bags. I am adopting your Looney Bin nomenclature, if the old habit dies easily enough. Dennis D Duquette ============================================ Theorem: All numbers are equal. Proof: 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 ____________________________________________________________________________________ Pinpoint customers who are looking for what you sell. http://searchmarketing.yahoo.com/
