Conversations on this list are anything but ordinary. Here is another word =
that
you might like, if your taste is perverted the same way as mine: "corollary=
".
You may also enjoy dirty words like "theorem", "proof", "Q.E.D" phrases lik=
e=20
"if and only if", "Cauchy sequence" and similar. From your liking of the wo=
