There is one MAJOR flaw. In the Appalacian mountains, there existed a
collection of tales called "Jacks Tales"
(maybe these also came from Ireland)
in one somebody put "death" in a sack and hung him/her in a tree. No one
died as a result of this. People kept getting older and more miserable
until Jack let Death
free again. Then they statred falling like ripe apples. Was Death locked
up in this arithmetic? Dan ---mule sense
