As a theoretical exercise I once produced mathematical evidence that the maximal
number of possible positions for intercourse cannot exceed the prime number
17.

I have come into possession of certain documents which not only invalidate everything
fundamental to our science of solid geometry but also undermine our whole canon
of physical laws and force one to redefine one’s place in nature’s
scheme. These papers outweigh in importance the combined works of Marx and Darwin.
They were the work of a fellow Scot, David Hunter. We met and became friends
in Vienna where, along with delegates from another dozen countries, we’d
been attending an international conference on mathematics. 14:54

Other maths people at the conference: That we must take the work the ?? work
that we have available to us and place it besides Euclid and between both positions
we can find the commonality of purpose….

Hunter: Gentlemen, gentlemen I must ask you to forgive this improper form of
address but I have something to tell you of the utmost importance. I have discovered
