&gt; &gt;In any event, remember a while back I said that I didn't think my
&gt; &gt;relation was new, and asked for a citation.
&gt;
&gt; a citation for an utter triviality.
&gt;
&gt; -i- just proved that
&gt;
&gt; 9767654654 + 90867531496 = 100635186150.
&gt;
&gt; i'm certain that this -is- new! anyone who says otherwise
&gt; should give a citation.
&gt;

As for the proof, I checked that the last digit is correct,
i.e., 0. By a basic principle of Harristotelian logic, if
something is true for m = 0 then it is true for all other
values also. So it checks out! Plus it is 'neat' and
of course 'fascinating'.
