Cyclotomic Polynomials eh? by MisterQueue (2.00 / 0) #1 Wed Dec 27, 2006 at 01:27:16 PM EST
I had one of those once... the doctor had to wrestle it out of my chest with two hands after he cut open my ribcage to remove it.

Said it fought like a bear, but stung like a bee.

It skittered across the floor and down the hall where it started a small family in the rafters of the creaky old Hospital of Guadalupe where I had chosen to have the procedure done (it was cheaper there.)

True story.

Do you have the ICBM co-ordinates of the hospital? We need to nuke the site from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

I used to yes, by MisterQueue (4.00 / 1) #3 Wed Dec 27, 2006 at 02:11:02 PM EST
but this cantankerous old man accosted me one day whilst selling my wares on the streets of Pompeii. Needless to say, I was none too happy.

At this point I'm sure it's best we simply accept our fate.

Also, you forgot to carry the two.
