I found, however, a flaw in my sentence above... Holding a box does
not mean its speed is zero==0. Should have writ.

Let me think, you Sam Worm Lie found a flaw in my thinking, yet leave
me to tell you what it is. Now that I rethink it, the artistic font
and sunrise backdrop are entirely wrong. Should've known, thanks!

Sam, you remind me of this "idiot professor" I had in senior year. He
assigned a eigenvalues mathematical problem to the entire class, to
solve a complicated beam vibrations issue. So then he calls me in to
his ofice, I sat across his vast desk, and he politely compliments me
for getting the proper answer. He asks me "How did you do it?!" and I
just sat there. Awe struck. You mean you professor don't know how to
solve the problem you assigned?

I guess he needed some text explanation to forward to whoever he was
going to present the solution to. Oy.
