Are you kidding me? It's because you live in an era where half of something is when you divide it by two. Back in the day, thanks to the tougher questions, it was actually harder to divide so they made a half just one part of something. However, K10 smoked a lot of cigarettes and drank, but otherwise he would have been able to do today's version of division, and would have been as good as you.
If you describe that as funny... then god help you.
I found it quite funny. Particularly the "you would have been just as good had you not smoked or drank" part.
If you think you're funny then go ahead and continue I'm sure everyone of your friends are laughing so hard... well all 1 of them (Bucky) is.
To clarify, Mr. Bugg and I are not friends. He, in fact is my Dad. While I am a keen personal observer of the career of Wayne Gretzky, I never saw Mark Messier play. Luckily, my dad (Mr. Bugg) moved out to Edmonton for a year around 1972 and gave me a first hand report.
