That's it? That's your contribution to this whole discussion of
whether the human orbital mechanics formulas can be placed side by side
with human gravity formulas? YOU'RE QUIBBLING ABOUT A ROUNDED NUMBER
WHEN THE ISSUE IS A FUNDAMENTAL INABILITY TO BRING YOUR MATH TOGETHER
ON ONE PAGE!!!!! Come on, Dave, I knew you sliced stuff into small bits
in order to deal with it, but this is kind of .. well .. embarrassing!

That's it? You can't address the serious assertion that YOUR ORBITAL
MECHANICS AND GRAVITY FORMULAS CAN'T BE PLACED SIDE BY SIDE but you can
joke around? So, Paul the clown, you're admitting what the Zetas say
about your math, being incapable of being put on the same page as true?
I'll accept that. Please note, world, Paul has capitulated.
