I would like to make a proclamation that of all the people you are likely to meet nobody will be as hopeless at maths as I- even Saturn. :lol:

According to his biographers, he was always making extravagant statements, "rhodomontades," that he didn't necessarily fully believe in. I always thought this comment, made in high spirits at a party, probably fell somewhere in that category.


The "Unweave a rainbow" quote is actually from Lamia: Book Two, verses 234-237.
