I was supposed to shut up. It was my way of saying: I can see that I have been saying too much; unbalanced in context of the whole. The Magic Number being what any group 'tends' towards. With even 5000, perhaps, a fluxuating 145 will always speak up, and the rest, not. So as hard as I will try, I will leave again now for awhile, just in response perhaps to this, though as always, my intent is for something I believe: See here how all humans have problems and they come out QUITE CLEARLY in text, often more-so than in video! Look here I am again talking when I know its time to shut up. We all (150 at any time) do have these problems, Cheryl Shuman, I'm also talking to you. So take the cue from Ro, and get back here and lets stop all this nonsense and I look forward to seeing what everyone says about VIDEO! Over, [static] Maybe its been at 145 for a long time and will stay at 145 for a long time.
