it can't be proven mathematically that a bumblebee can't fly. it doesn't matter what you've heard about it. im not saying nobody's tried to prove it, im saying any such proof is obviously lacking. if you just KNOW when to call a certain thing, especially with a certain partner, consider whether your...
