1 post mod? If you can be mod without a post, why can i be one? :O


This is "random mod week". Every day, we choose one completely random user to be a mod and see how they do.

Seriously, though, I'll let you figure out who Fluffy is for yourself :P

The reason this problem has stumped some people is because whoever told it to you is...let's just say, mathematically challenged. Hours worked is a different unit than dollars...just as $2 + 2h does not equal $4 or 4 hours or 4 dollar-hours.

Another explanation is that centip3de told us the problem incorrectly. Perhaps we will never know.

Perhaps. I don't think he even read the replies. If he did, he's ignoring the fact that we're asking for the context of the problem. I think I'm beginning to see what Goatboy means.

I think I know who it is. Has it something to do with an admin that loves manboobies? :P

My mantitties are pink, soft and hard. I breastfeed little boys like a BAUSS.

I do it better than M.J.
Yes, I am Monica, so you should STFU. Get ready to be MANTittieRolled.

Sorry to go off topic here, but why use two handles? This seems to become more and more common in HTS.

It's nothing to do with that. IIRC, she forgot her password.

random user mod week :!: . Hope I get picked since I sent an application but got rejected...not even a letter or denial or anything of the such.... :cry:

And to the original post. Repost the question. I looked at this post too late [disappointed smiley].

You haven't been rejected. We haven't made any official responses to your application (I think). For the record, application discussion should be done privately.

Yes. How'd you figure that out? The biggest clue for me was the sig. /chuckles

She should hack her way back in? That would be cool. 8-)
