I said a proof, not a repeat of your babble. Do you even know what a proof
in math is????

Must be hard for you now. You're struggling to understand FLT, even though
Fermat's Last Theorm was proven over 20 years ago. You're still struggling
to understand the Dandelin Spheres proof, and along comes "me" with a proof
the ellipse is a conic section not involving Dandelin Spheres!

These seem to be pushing you over the edge. Alouatta notes your kook lists
are getting longer... Or perhaps that's just what happens with someone they
thought wasn't bolted down too tight in the first place.
