    Good job Madison! Great game Wolf (despite the fact that an invention is not "founded" (or found)).

    You and I come from two different worlds and invention and found can be the same thing.

    "Invention and Discovery Are the Same. To find something is the same as making it. To make something is the same as finding it. ... Calculus was discovered by both Leibniz and Newton."

    Plus I did some Calculus a few months ago, I learned quite a few new things from it.

    Where is this quote from?

    I assumed you meant to say "founded", in which case it would be a company or business, not an invention. But if you indeed meant to say "found", I don't understand how that word can be used as a substitute for "invention". If an electric chair doesn't yet exist, you can't find one; you have to make or invent it.

    And "discovering" a law of nature, such as gravity or calculus, seems to have nothing to do with inventing anything. So I'm confused.

    I googled it "is an invention and found the same thing".

    That why I didn't go with founding. I was going with an object so this object was found aka invented.

    It might not exactly be a quote. But I remember hearing and seeing it on the net before and I heard it again when I was learning calculus a few months ago. The guy who was teaching me, "Sometimes you have to find new ways to reinvent things even though they already have been found or discovered."

    I was already had one hell of a time learning calculus. So finally he showed me some youtube videos and applied it with his teaching and I had another way of figuring out the formula even though it was already discovered.

    So there you go, I found something new even though it was already invented. But putting a twist on it and that why we come from two different worlds.

    We already went down this hole like a month ago and we certainly don't need a round 2. I guess you don't remember what Hectic said to us. So I'm walking away before this gets out of control.

    I remember the recent conflict. I am not now, nor did I previously intend to cause any friction. I don't see how these little points keep getting viewed in such an inflammatory way, but I'm happy to drop it.

    I mainly prefer to avoid arguments about corrections, especially on grammar.

    I wasn't arguing about grammar; the clue was misleading to me. And the actress madness thing wasn't about grammar either; it was about an actress being listed multiple times. I've stopped commenting on grammar.

    You weren't, I rather avoid arguing about corrections. I have been on many forums, where people just like to correct people about the littlest crap even it confusing or not. After a while the topic gets ugly and I rather avoid it.

    The madness correction is different, yes it's a correction. But it good correction where it could screw up future matches. Those type of corrections I don't mind.

    Lately, now my whole life has been getting nasty and ugly. I'm trying to avoid arguments and negative shit, so good stuff can happen again. Maybe it's like Yin and Yang.

    Right now, I work in an office with some Trump supporters. Because the douche bag will be here in Phoenix on Friday and my co-workers were going on and on about how great the jerk is. I simply spoke up, can you please stop talking about him and one guy wanted to get into an argument with me. I simply said I don't care for the asshole and he wanted to get political on me, so I walked away.
