The shorthand should be smaller and more compact, but it is my first attempt. And the manual says I need 'a good fountain pen with a flexible nib' which I don't have yet. :huh:

Any recommendations you pen-lovers out there?

There are approx 5 million bubbles in a bubble bath, assuming the average bubble is 2mm in diameter.

Make that average bubble size 1mm, and you get approx 45 million bubbles in your bubblebath. :)

:huh:

The volume of each bubble is 4/3 π x r cubed.

1 cubed is eight times 0.5 cubed therefore 40 million bubbles.

In Texas, the bubbles average just under one meter in diameter. Ask Mister Skids, he'll tell that everything is bigger in Texas. :)

The justness of individual land right is not justifiable to those to whom the land by right of first claim collectively belonged.
