Not trying to tell a sob story, just thought it might help you understand your friend.


Glad to hear you say this Angus..as long as I can remember I have counted things..everything !!! Birds flying over in a group, people standing in a group, cars in a parking lot. If there is more than one I'm going to count it. No idea why. :???:
i count the yellow passing zone lines (dots)

You need to get into a more comfortable zone. Obviously, you're driving too slow.

I work out the math in my head when I am driving anywhere. I will see a sign say a certain number of miles to something and I spend the next several minutes breaking it down to how many seconds it will take to get there, then start over by thinking, if I changed my speed to 1 mile an hour faster.....
One thing you will never hear a southern boy say....Duct tape won't fix that, except, even duct tape can't fix stupid. It can, however, muffle it.

Similar ... when filling up, I pre-pay for a fixed amount of gas / diesel and then try to figure out, to the nearest 100th, the number of gallons I'll be getting when I hit my pre-paid amount.

When I am mowing one of the bigger fields, I will time my mowing for once around and then try to figure out how long it will take for the 4th or 5th round coming up. Once in a great while I get close.

What a waste of time, I thought this thread was supposed to be about dinosaurs?

It is, the dinosaurs were also very meticulous about counting their heads exploded and that's what killed the dinosaurs
