I concur.


I’m thinking a full set of NIAD teapots for pigfender in addition to his chapter cups. Oh, and the teapots could all be yellow! :wink:

Wait a bleedin' minute!
229,582,512 distinct versions of Butterfly Dawn? :shock:
So, maybe I'm rotten at maths, but really?
53 participants and 19 chapters equate to 229,582,512?!!!!!!!

Could someone please explain, because crooning politely to my phone's AI doesn't get me close to that. Doesn't get me anywhere, really.


15 books have 2 versions, and 4 books have 2 versions. So 3^15*2^4.

Of course, that should be 15 books have **3** versions, and 4 books have 2 versions.

It *should* have been 19 chapters with 3 versions but four people didn’t submit! :/

But given the number of typos I've made in setting that out, nobody will believe me.

Mystery? I suppose.

Can someone work out the length of shelving required for the 229,582,512 versions. Also, some sort of cataloguing might be useful, given the identical covers. :D

Am I speaking to you? What with your yellow 15 and steaming white mug. Oh purlease! Why and how? And has Mr Fender enough blood for the whole set?

Now, children, just do your homework assignment and don’t complain. I’m sure your teacher had a very good reason for assigning you those 229,582,512 novels. You can have your pudding when you’re finished with that.


Only a supply teacher like my "boyfriend" can think of something like that. Might want to show this to him some day; he loves maths to bits.

The answer to all four of your questions is Yes, definitely yes. (We don’t know where he gets all the blood from, but some say he goes on some kind of 24-hour spree each year. I would look there for answers.)

Sad about the Suds n’ Duds.

The “boyfriend” teaches supplies? Or about supplies? Or about “supplies”? I mean, we know from previous that he works hard to earn his quote marks, but why do none of these sound like an actual job one could have. Perhaps those scare quotes go deeper than we ever imagined.
