You do the Math...s

Sometimes, I have to wonder if the ordering of the punctuation on a keyboard is specifically designed to make you think just one step further than you were going to. There are so many times my poor typing leads me to construct a list and then find I've used the + symbol instead of the = symbol. And then I look at the still-open equation and realise A + B + C = D would have been much less interesting than A + B + C + D.

I reckon it could just be another of those obscure lessons one has to learn. Go a bit further.

Although, apparently, this doesn't apply to jokes about paedophiles, gynaecology or famous dead people. There, the line exists for a reason.
