Nope. That's my point exactly. I NEVER couched my arguments in terms of 'mathematically possible'. My context was actually possible in the real world -- not in a mathematical formula. I've...

OK, I'll try my best below to help you understand two things: 1) how these statements came across to me; and 2) that I do understand the meaning of the words "impossible" and "not possible" vs....

Again, Mr. Mono, I understand the difference between impossible and highly unlikely. I am not an idiot, sir, so please stop the patronizing. By the way, DNA science can definitively determine...

If said SINGLE HOLE existed (as Steve W says it might) that's all well and good. But I said a COURSE. No such course exists. Not one on which this ratings system has validity and internal...
