    I hadn't thought about it but now that you mention it.....I think I know exactly who you are referring to....

    Permanent magnets or electromagnets?

    If you learned calculus some time in the past, it comes back to you pretty fast if you review it. I don't use integrals or derivatives in my line of work so it's been a few decades since I did them. I know of a young lady who is currently taking high school calculus and she's been calling me when she's stuck, so I'm having to relearn it. It's been coming back very fast so I've been able to get her unstuck on all her questions so far.

    I'm not a biologist, but a long time ago I was a chemist with a heavy dose of biology thrown in.

    With close to 1/2 million members on beesource I wouldn't have time to read all their posts to argue, maybe you do.
    Oh that's right you are one of those engineer types that don't understand logic. Sorry, I can't communicate with you.

    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?

    Please explain, I went to the members list and found 30 listed on a page and 16332 pages. About 489960 members was close enough to 1/2 million. Do you come up with a different number?

    But they do tend to think about things too hard.

    Did you stop to consider that a lot of those people are no longer active on Beesource and that there are currently many more lurkers than posters, IMHO.

    IOW (In other words), only active posters since about March 2011 are arguing with you Ace.

    Your number is way off (FACT) probably by a couple of orders of magnitude (IMHO).

    I havent had a chance to use this yet, but....

    And then I must ask....

    Would you rather fight 1 horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses?

    I went to school for engineering. However that's not the direction my career took after college. I guess I got weeded out by Ace's standards :/ ... but I'm glad my communication skills and my logic skills are balanced enough to get cg3's joke.

    There are 16332 registered user names.

    You're very careless with reading or math, or something....

    Now we just need an English major to point out differences between your and you're and we'll have ourselves a 5 star thread.

    I don't have all the grammars either.
    I wouldn't have had the guts to use effected in a sentence.
