You will not have it your way. I have already given you an applet (https://www.filesanywhere.com/fs/v.aspx?v=8b6d668e5e5e74baa867) addressing this very topic. It was designed for you.

If you want to debate the topic, post your question or comment at my FB (http://facebook.com/thenewcalculus) link and I will debate it with you.
