People have a delayed reaction? I'm not that smart about this stuff, but my reaction was instant and I'm not looking back. One's everyday vocation is going to have an effect on one's brain-wrinkles I suppose...

If bit 0 of signed or unsigned integer n is 0, then (n mod 2) is 0 and that number is even. Can't work any other way. Odd and even are mutually-exclusive, and if 0 were to be odd then it would upset the entire pattern, therefore the very fabric of the universe. What better argument could be expected?

That's why the Big Zero and the liberals cannot continue to give away trillions of dollars when we have zero money left in the treasury.

But like the mathematicians say, maybe they've found a different way around the universe.

I've been viewing this series for a few years now. I think Prof. Grimes [the young guy] is instrumental in making many of the female viewers might want him for a babydaddy. He's in a lot of the math videos.

I suspect he makes my wife moist, but she won't admit it.
