Re: Well there is a point to this

"// don't change this part

And wonder, "What the hell was I thinking?""

I have written in the past, to myself

/* Don't change this. You think it isn't right, but it is.

I've thought about it a lot recently, and it is right.

I know what you are thinking: you're thinking it should

be n+1 rather than n, but it shouldn't be, it should be n.

I mean it. If you do, you will get the wrong answer. */
