Cheryl, a general conversation in public view. Cheryl are you any good at math? I am not. I hate math. Cosines, formulas, quarks, long division, multiplication and fractions. Especially fractions. Fractions are scarry things. The only thing I hate worse than math is physics.


I am gonna give ya some math. If I thump my Ugly stick on the ground, once every twenty in a cycle of twenty four, divided equally between three/fifths, not counting the 6th plus an equal amount to others at 15,000 a crack, how long would it take in seconds before the cows came home to be milked?

I'm not trying to show off my math skills here or beat Cheryl to the answer but I believe it would take the same amount of time that it takes a monkey with boxing gloves on to get a fly out of a barrel of treacle, the square of which is six men digging a six mile trench in six days given that the fog is equivalent to a bag on the head of a blind man on a galloping horse in the dark.

Dave. (La Tourneau- is that Canadian or Southern Louisiana?) Mr Dave the 3/5 th's is the primer, licking the cork is the hammer.

When on a cobbled bumpy road, fit the neck of the bottle tightly to the lips when raising the bottle.

John, without certain information, you are creating a circular reference. First, we need to know what measure of time you are using when you say twenty in a cycle of 24. Are you talking equal increments, seconds to seconds, or minutes to hours, hours to hours, etc...

Next you cannot divide equalyy between 3/5's you can divide equally by, but not between.

Now if I interpret your mesurements correctly and if you begin at 3 am during the second cycle of the moon phase, it would take exactly 7200 seconds for the lead cow with the last cow, given a herd of 382, coming in at 9000 seconds or 30 minutes after the 1st.

Good Luck,

Shawn

Cheryl, don't touch it- I think the answer was to lure out the ingenious's of the group so he can send them a computorial hicup.
