There's no arguing with devastating logic ;-)

It's conceivable that _someone_ on the planet might believe I was lying,
since the example I gave is tedious to verify without aid of symbolic-math
software.

But Rick? LOL -- the explanation he gave was easy to verify in your head.
Yes, _your_ head: you're perfectly capable of following the explanation he
gave. I did so without even bothering to pick up a pencil: you can't use
your lack of mathematical software as a credible excuse for this one. So
one explanation for your failure to follow Rick's easy demonstration is that
you're even dumber than me :-) Have another one?

I was wondering when you'd trot out "proof by revenge fantasy including
Death to the Infidels". Sometimes you're able to see the patterns you fall
into. I saw this one coming about two weeks ago.

Do you know what you'll do next? Here's a hint: revenge fantasies occur
twice in your cycle. "Death to the Infidels" appears in the second phase
(the first phase is just about public humiliation of your imagined enemies).
It was behind schedule this time around -- perhaps you're just slowing as
you age ;-)

In any case, no, this rounding of Surrogate Factoring doesn't lead to
anything useful either. It would be a nice change if you skipped the last
phases remaining in this cycle and leaped straight to the start of the next
one. Hey, _you'd_ find that refreshing too! Try it.
