    Y'all heard about the constipated mathematician? He worked it out with a pencil. Any mistakes were easily erased.

    That joke is false. It was actually a chalk board.

    Mrs Sax, a mathematician, rules MY world. And she’s had my number since we first met, 20 years ago next week. She does NOT, however, know how many guns I have. That number is unknown except by me.

    Would that have been a yardstick or tape measure?

    Yep, you caught me, I was assuming.

    Just performed first annual yearly quiz. Nope, she doesn’t know. She guessed. Incorrectly.

    Perhaps, if the number of Christmas cards sent by OldVet is agreed to as an infinite, versus an unknown or undefined, number.
    If it were a larger number, to me it might seem more akin to infinite to me.
