That yields a BMI of 13.6. The guy is disturbingly lanky.

Why am I getting a sudden urge to go on a diet?

0^0 is 1 in combinatronics but undefined in real analysis.

It depends what context you're using it in.

Telling everyone to be abstinent isn't a solution at all, since people who swear to be abstinent have just as much pre-martial sex as those who don't swear to be abstinent on average. A vast majority won't do it even if you tell them to, which is why abstinence-only sex education is a remarkable fai...

Old earth creationism I can empathize with, at least.
