How many ? is the question.
Posted Feb 9, 2019
The chain is a unit of length equal to 66 feet (22 yards). It is subdivided into 100 links or 4 rods. There are 10 chains in a furlong, and 80 chains in one statute mile. In metric terms, it is 20.1168 m long.
We all know that a "usual" CHAIN consists of links
But! How many links does it take ? to count as a chain ?
2 links - 3 links ? more ? and has this poser been discussed at university and academic levels to determine, or even government levels ? to specify an answer ?
Open question to H2G2 Researchers (us lot)

Undress at anytime (bedtime or shower etc) and your denim jeans slide off dead easy, as you remove them the same way each and every time.
BUT! have a little drink and they stick to your legs and your having to od'on to something to keep your balance, while removing them.

If only this could be used as a simple template by countries, instead of warring against anything you don't agree with.
Had this passed to me...
Before a father passed away, he left in his will that 17 Camels be used as an Asset for his Three Sons.
On his passing, his sons opened up the will.
The will of the father stated that the eldest son should get half of 17 camels, the middle son should be given 1/3rd of 17 camels and the youngest son should be given 1/9th of the 17 camels.
As it is not possible to divide 17 into half or 17 by 3 or 17 by 9, the sons started to fight with each other.
So, they decided to go to a wise man.
The wise man listened patiently about the will. The wise man, pondered and then giving this thought, brought one camel of his own and added the same to 17. That increased the total to 18 camels.
Now, he started reading the deceased father’s will.
half of 18 = 9.
So he gave 9 camels
to the eldest son.
1/3rd of 18 = 6.
So he gave 6 camels
to the middle son.
1/9th of 18 = 2.
So he gave 2 camels
to the youngest son.
Now add this up:
9 + 6 + 2 = 17 &
This leaves 1 camel,
which the wise man took back.
MORAL: The attitude of negotiation & problem solving is to find the 18th camel i.e. the common ground.
Once a person is able to find the common ground, the issue is resolved. It is difficult at times.
However! To reach a solution, the first step is to believe that there is a solution.
If we think that there is no solution, we won’t be able to reach any!

Lost a good one, but not sad
Posted Jan 12, 2015
This morning around 11am (give or take an hour) I lost a friend to a brain tumour
I'm saddened at his passing, but I'm not down at heart, because he remains in my heart and memoryand will do while I breathe.
now he's not suffering
