Sounds greek doesn't it? But I solved it yesterday and I'm positive that I would not have been able to solve such a problem in my twenties. Then again, I never tried the problem in my twenties either, but that's not the point. Anyway the answer to this problem is P - 3.
My feelings have not changed overnight. I am still mourning the loss of my twenties. And no funeral would be complete without flowers:
A friend at work gave these to me and the card of course said something along the lines of happy birthday, but for this post we are going to pretent the card read, "Sorry about the loss of your twenties. I know that the two of you were close."
Goodbye Twenties! It was great while it lasted. I will always remember you!
