in case anyone wondered, one thing that is worse than having to do long division is HAVING TO WATCH SOMEONE DO LONG DIVISION.

i wish i was being hypothetical.
don't ask.

i don't actually mind doing long division. converting decimals. reducing fractions. it appeals to my orderly nature. but watching someone doing such things, in a much  s l  o   w    e     r  manner than my synapses compute, was quite possibly the most displeasurable thing i have ever had to do. at first it felt like my skin was melting off, ever so slowly, into an impatient puddle of fleshy mush. i wanted to claw my eyes out horror movie style, and near the end my internal organs began fighting each other over who would voluntarily shut down first and begin putting all systems out of our collective misery.

i need a nap.

the question is, why were you observing some divide?

that should be 'someone'
obviously my proofreading skills turn themselves off on the weekend (kindof like blogging on the weekend) on the otherhand, my hacking skills & cake-building skills become more enhanced of a weekend. ;)
