no no you understood prfectly *but* the thing is i am a regular in an 
italian language math ng which is haunted by a crackpot who insists that 
1/2 * 1/2 cannot be 1/4, "because multiplication means getting bigger", 
so i took a semi-serious stance and made a few posts as a statistical 
tentative to "convince" said crackpot that the world is not going crazy 
(but maybe he is)


ps: note that my nickname is not unique, and there are a few people 
whith the same one... and i didn't ever post using googlegroups
